What a wonderful 4th
Last weekend my wife and son got conjunctivitus and a cold. Come Wednesday I get a cold, probably the worst one I have ever had in my life (I got it much worse then they had it). All Wednesday I have a fever (101-102), Thursday I am feeling a little better, get in to work for a couple of hours in the morning and then we drive to the in-laws at the beach for 4 days. Friday I am feeling not so bad, head to the beach, have some fun. Saturday feeling pretty crappy again, but hit the beach. Sunday, horrible, fever is back horrible sinus pain and pressure, can't sleep at all (couldn't saturday night either). Monday dead tired, I mean hallucinatory tired basically (2 nights running with 0 sleep and poor sleep the 3 nights before that).
I finally manage to fall asleep monday afternoon and got some decent sleep last night.
Talk about a wonderful vacation.
PS that cold turned in to a nasty sinus infection that I am still fighting off. Thank goodness for Amoxicillian (I get that most sinus infections aren't bacterial, but I did start feeling better the morning after I started taking Amoxicillian).
Anyone else have any vacation sickness horror stories?
