I Have the Flu (again) -- and I Have Bronchitis (sigh)

I'm back from the doctor and the pharmacy. (My dear sister Sue so kindly took me to both places!) Marilyn (as always) was right. According to the doctor, I'm currently having a recurrence of the flu that I had back in March. He's sure the April 'cold' I had was the same thing. So in other words, I'm on my SECOND recurrence of that damn flu! (My doctor has been going through the exact same thing -- and he says it's been happening to a ton of people.)

He also thinks it might be contagious, unfortunately. So he really wants me to stay home from work. Actually, he wants me to stay down in bed with it, but I made it pretty clear that's just not going to happen right now. But I am tired, so I might do some more work and then try and get a nap in...

He has me on Advair, Azithromycin (yet again) and Prochlorperazine (for nausea). If I don't get better within 10 days, he wants to send me to a specialist, believe it or not. Seriously? This is only the second time in my life I've had bronchitis, so it doesn't seem like a big deal to me. I'm not coughing all the time, I'm not dizzy, I'm not unable to walk or do things. So... I did have to have three x-rays, though. The visit took a lot longer than I'd hoped it would -- especially when you add in the visit to Rite-Aid...

Anyway, back to work!
