Here's a funny thing. Over the past couple of years, I've actually been pretty healthy. No colds, no flus, no nothing. Cold or flu would be bad, given my typically low immune system. My doctors wanted me to get a flu shot a couple of months ago, but I said no to that. Just seemed wrong that I'd voluntarily inject myself with a virus.
Anyhow, last night I had a sore throat, some sniffles and I was pretty tired. I thought I might be coming down with something. "Noooooo!" That's the thought that ran through my head. Getting sick is not a good thing. I've been doing so well, I didn't want some virus to derail me. Plus I do chemo today, and I was worried that if I was sick, that Dr Phan would delay my chemo. But I slept a little extra and now I feel ok. A few sniffles but no sore throat. Whew. Close call.
