And the Sick Continues

Went to the doctor today, turns out I've got the hardcore influenza virus. A simple flu bug unfortunately isn't all that I've got going on. I'm soooo sick; I haven't been able to read blogs or do much more than anything but moan and curse my luck.

Hopefully I'll be around this weekend - but more realistically - pry next week. :(

Miss you all...

Brie, for my Anthropology of Infectious Disease class, I had to look up some factoids about the dread influenza. I shall share some with you:
The first recorded influenza outbreak took place in northern Greece in 412 BC.

The word "influenza" is derived from the Italian word for "influence," because people believed the disease to be influenced by the alignment of the stars.

Richard Shope, a medical researcher, used a filtered nasal mucus from infected pigs using a special screen to determine that the flu is caused by a virus.

Influenza costs worldwide could be as great as $160 billion/year.

Hope you feel better.

Oh, Brie, that sucks hardcore. What bad luck you've had with health... first the toothache and root canal, now major flu. You must be going crazy. I hope you're sleeping a lot.

And keep yourself hydrated and shiz. You don't want to end up in the hospital.

Yikes. I hope you feel better soon.

Hey! Hope you start feeling better soon. That Influenza is really going around. It has even made it's way all the way to Iowa! Lucky our household has not suffered yet. When I read about your dentist and Endo visit, I thought that might be Brian someday. :) But, not very likely he wants to do Orthodontics or Oral Surgery at this point, but...you never know.
