That was a close call

Influenza did *not* hit the house. A collective sigh of relief was heard throughout when we realized this.

My daughter went to a clinic where she was told that she had a virus that had triggered her asthma, so she's now taking care of that and, although she still doesn't feel well enough to do what she had planned for the weekend, there's an improvement already.

I felt lousy all day, ended up taking some ibuprofen to ward off the headache and chills I had. I have no idea what it was that caused it, but I'm feeling better today. Not 100%, but better.

What do you do when you're feeling under the weather? As someone who is self-employed, it's hard to take off a day - or more - for being sick. On the other hand, sometimes, you just don't have a choice.

I'll be making a nice big pot of chicken soup later. That's got to help everyone feel a bit better at least. :-)
