I have the flu. Aching, fever, chills, runny nose, can't breathe, hurt all over flu.

And I am in a hotel room in Little Rock.


I had to cancel my first session I was to teach this morning because I can't quite pull it together. Someone is going to bring me some drugs and water and gatorade soon so maybe if I sleep a little more and take those I can pull it together long enough to do my two afternoon sessions.

The ironic thing about all of this is I told them a month back that I didn't think I should come because of all the health problems I've been dealing with lately and they were so insistent that I come. So here I am. All sick and stuff. I don't regret coming though because it has been very good for me to be here in a lot of ways. I may not be able to do the networking I want and I may have to cancel this first morning session but I am still thinking it has been a worthwhile investment of my time because it has given me some ideas and reinforced some of the things I know I'm good at but have forgotten about.

anyhow...I am going to blow my nose, put my wild hair in a pony tail and run down (more like walk slowly and lean against a wall now and again) and grab some food for breakfast because while I may be sick I still have a huge appetite! Which I am so thankful for because it was not that long ago I couldn't barely eat. I go...

I hope you feel better soon Jamie! I had the flu a couple of weeks ago and it's not fun at all. I'm glad that you still have an apatite though =) I'll keep you in my prayers... and if you think of it could you keep me in yours? I'm going to the ENT tomorrow, chance I might have mastoiditis.
