The impermeable wall has busted and crumbled.

By impermeable wall, I mean - my immune system. My rock solid, only-gets-a-cold-once-a-year immune system has somehow been compromised, and I'm rather irritated about the situation.

Dennis usually gets sick a few times a year. Especially right about now, being that he works in the germ infested land known as an elementary school. Shoot, I work in a hospital for crying outloud - you'd think I'd get sick, but I rarely ever do.

I was such a good little lady...getting in line for my seasonal flu and H1N1 vaccinations, yadda yadda yadda and then KABAM.

Frickin' fever of 102 hits me like a Mack truck Wednesday. Then the body aches and sore throat.

Fever's been gone since Wednesday afternoon, but the sore throat persists. Dang swab for strep throat came back negative, so it looks like I'm just gonna have to wait this one out, just like all the other people who get sick every year.

Along with my fabulous sore throat, I've had killer headaches on and off, which makes the whole concept of writing coherent blog posts a rather undesirable activity.

So, whatever. Hopefully it will go away soon. Pshhhhh - stupid frickin' sickness.

And is it just me, or does anyone else think of that hilarious SNL skit with Will Ferrell and Christopher Walkin whenever you hear the word "fever"? You know...Christopher Walkin... "I've got a feva, and the only more cowbell!"

My poor poor Sera!!!! Get better my love....I kept hoping I would get sick just so I could lay in bed, but I'd much rather pass on the sore throat.

Love ya lady!

Honestly...I think I gave my immune system away when I birthed my children.

I have none now.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to get sick just from reading this post.

Thanks a lot Sera.

I hope you're feeling better soon!!!

Christopher cracks me up. He used to scare me, but he's reinvented himself with his funny!

Yuck! I have had the exact same thing for over a week! Fever of 102 for 24 hours, then sore throat, cough and awful headaches that won't leave me alone!
Hope you get to feeling better very soon!
