I'm having a glorious Valentine's Day for the simple reason that I've finally turned a corner in the Virus From Hell. Yes, after seven straight days of misery, I have no fever at all! My throat doesn't hurt! I can breathe through both sides of my nose! I just went out to get the mail, and I only coughed twice on the way there! The freaking bluebird of happiness fluttered down from the sunny sky and landed on my shoulder! (Okay, maybe not that last part.) I feel like taking my immune system out and buying it a congratulatory drink.
Be grateful for your health, kids. No matter how craptastic life is, getting sick automatically makes it 10,000 times worse. Take it from Auntie V.
