I'm sick

And I'm miserable.

And like any self-respecting doctor's wife would, I've done a little research, and based on my symptoms, I've narrowed it down to the three* most likely causes: anthrax, malaria, or ebola. Or maybe a combination of all three.

So you probably shouldn't come over. I mean, they say anthrax isn't spread by person-to-person contact, but do you really want to risk it?




PS: It's only three because I already ruled out scurvy.

I'm sorry you're sick! Can I send you some powerpoint slides of kittens to cheer you up? :) I hope you feel better soon.

In one of my lab classes we had to isolate different bacteria from ourselves. I diagnosed myself with Bordetella pertussis : whooping cough. I think anthrax or ebola would be way worse. Hope you feel better soon!

Sorry--I hope you get better soon. Maybe that doctor husband could at least bring you a placebo.

Boss said...

Thanks, ya'll. No placebo works as well as a little sympathy. Especially now that I'm pretty sure I have whooping cough too. (Thanks a lot Woodine!) And kittens couldn't hurt either. (Unless they were mauling my face.)

Well, not that I don't feel bad for you, but silly you for not using your mosquito netting! Then you coul have narrowed it down to just the two.

I'm sorry you are so sick! I hope you are better today. Sorry I have no kittens to cheer you up. But I'm praying for you!
Love you!

Every time my friend Rhia, at rhiasrubish dot blogspot dot com, is sick she swears that she has SARS or West Nile Virus. She blogged about this recently, you could check it out, you may have those too.

I hope you (and the little ones too because I'm sure they are suffering from Sick Mommy Syndrome) feel better soon. I'm glad you are so far in the south so their is no temptation to visit ;o)

You definitely need the care of your mommy or a nurse to take care of you. Perhaps you could come to Burton for Easter and have both. We'd risk all those things. We love you and hope you feel better soon.
