They basically told me to just sit in my dorm room and wait it out. They also volunteered typical flu advice like, "drink lots of fluids and stay in bed". I have no interest in sitting in bed and waiting. Since they wouldn't let me go to class until Monday I took this time to clean the room, get some freelance editing done, and relax.
One of the funny things about this flu was that unlike the regular flu I got ups and downs out of the deal. For instance, Wednesday afternoon I felt great so I went ahead and played the drums for my friend Klayton at Guyer Springs Baptist Church. Then Wednesday night I felt ridiculous. Thursday morning was better, then the afternoon was awful, then the night was fine. It's been weird to have these highs and lows, but I'll take 'em! I guess with the normal flu you're just supposed to be down all the time, so I'll take what little freedom I can get.
My sleep schedule is really wild now, and after sleeping all day I am wide awake and ready for action here at 3am.
Thank you for all the prayers and support during these past five days. I am beginning to recover now and look forward to classes first thing Monday morning. Thank you all, and please don't get sick!
