I spent the last two days in bed...sick as a dog. My cat wasn't sick, but she was willing to tuck in and make sure that I was never alone and all my needs were tended to. I've never been so sick and felt so awful for so long. I still have an incredibly bad sore throat, but I'm able to sit up today without coughing up a lung or feeling like the top of my head might blow off -- so I'm calling that a big improvement. I'm at work...and I miss my little shadow a lot.
