I've now missed two days at the office because surely my co-workers do not want me around hacking germs into our shared airspace. Plus, when I start feeling poorly at home, I can just go lie down on the floor until my energy levels improve. I believe they may frown upon that at work.
Yesterday I made it into the doctor's office, only to be given the exact diagnosis and prescriptions I received about six weeks ago. So it's another bout of bronchitis and so far the medicines are accomplishing absolutely nothing as far as I can tell.
I'm actually getting work done, believe it or not. There's nothing like uninterrupted home office time when you need to burn through a bunch of minor projects. I'm still counting most of the past two days as sick time, but at least I've accomplished a few things and managed to phone into the few meetings I had.
Dr. Jones and Trillian spend the early mornings all riled up, but fortunately they sleep all day long. Here's Dr. Jones trying to catch the birds he hears outside. He thinks that if he climbs up high, he can reach them.
Trillian is wont to steal my chair when I get up, but she's mostly content to sleep in her little bed on my desk.
I'm hoping that tomorrow is a turning point and I can muster the energy to work all day at the office. I have a lot of meetings and some tasks that require my physical presence.
Man, I'm tired of being sick. Any tips for boosting my immune system so that I'm not such a delicate flower from now on?
