And on the 12th Day of Viral Infection, My Fever Gave to Me

This morning was the first morning in 12 days where I woke up and didn't feel entirely like warm turd.

Don't get me wrong, I didn't wake up feeling like unicorns had been kissing me all night, but to wake up and feel even a smidgen like myself was a welcome feeling.  I still took two Advil to ward off the small undercurrent of crud I could still feel, but I think I may be on the mend (*knock on wood*).

Coincidentally, the dr. called this morning with the results of my blood test, and it showed that I had nada.  No mono.  No bacterial infections.  Nuthin.  So, again, the dr. reiterated that I was probably just fighting a particularly clingy virus. 

Incidentally, Jerry said he woke up this morning and felt a little icky.  He said his throat was sore.  Uh-oh.  I hope I didn't pass on the 12 Days of Ick to him!  Ah, the gift of marriage: Wherein you get to share EVERYthing.

In the meanwhile, I haven't let this bothersome bug interrupt the streak.  Over the weekend, I did my best to rest as much as possible so I just stuck to 1 milers, but today I ran 3 miles, and felt pretty decent.

Today is Day #93.  7 more days and I tie my 100 day streak from 2010!  Virus, schmirus!  I gots to keep running, yo.

glad you're on the mend! and you're AH-mazing on the streaking. you've inspired me to try it several times (granted NONE of those time did i actually get the the starting phase, but i thought about it). i MAY attempt soon but i think i'm just going to attempt a mile a day streak and see how that goes :)

Strange that it's "nothing," hope that really is the case.

Glad to hear the ickies are leaving you for your husband. Perhaps he's a better host. All that running probably got annoying to the little bugs. Get well, get well soon, we want you to get well ... cheers!

Glad you're finally feeling better! How you kept the streak alive through something funky like that is nuts.

Good for you! Show that virus who is boss!

Good to hear you're on the mend. I'm always suspect of doctors when they say it's nothing. There is too much crud that's not tested for commonly. You obviously had something, just nothing that knocked you down completely. Best wishes on feeling better and looking forward to seeing you bust your previous streak.

Nothing like that early morning warm turd feeling to get you going!

i passed on my ick to my husband as well. :-(

glad you are on the mend. i may have had the same thing. seemed like a sinus/bronchitis viral thingy that started with a sore throat and made me feel horrible
