Sick day

Today I'm having a sick day. The bug that's been laying low my colleagues finally hit me at noon yesterday. One minute I'm busy at the nurse's station organising chest x-rays, ENT visit, social work referral and lift repair, the next I'm coughing sandpaper, and someone's replaced my legs with jelly.
I managed to struggle (heroically - if anyone from the Eye Pavilion is reading this) through to 7pm when Lynne of the night shift arrived, and I was able to hand over to her and flee the building. Until then, I was in the unusual situation of being able to organise my sick day - writing a red S over my shift on the off duty, and the work rota.
So today I feel generally grody, and I'm just hoping it doesn't get any worse. I don't do sick very well.

Oh drat! I hope it's not the flu, we have a shot called Tamaflu(sp?)over here, knocks that shit out right now, is it available over there? Hope you're back in order soon.

Thanks Bentley. I'm still feeling under the weather, but it hasn't got any worse. I hope I start coming out of it tomorrow.
