Icky Snotty Goo

I think I've lost 1/2 my body water in snot in the past 2 days. I am keeping the tissue industry alive! Who knows whether I picked this up observing in the ER or whether it's been brewing for a week or more (and is responsible for my headache) but I am most definitely ill. This really has ruined my plans for tomorrow's holiday. I was going to observe in labour and delivery and I was really looking forward to seeing babies!

I'm going to have to start studying this week. Ugh. Things always seem to get busier near the end of the year when I need more time to study.

Sounds like a rhinovirus. Upside: they clear up promptly and don't give you any chest symptoms.

Get better soon!

Unfortunately, I also have a chesty cough :(

Yeah, that's so true for my life too... Things really pick up and get busy at the worst of times...

I remember I had a cold once, I went into school with an entire roll of toilet paper for my nose because even Mansize Kleenex couldn't handle me!

It sucks about missing the labour ward, though I'm sure you'll get another opportunity to observe!

Bugger, those linger. On the other hand, you're heading towards Summer, whereas down here we're beginning the depressing journey towards Winter and sickness and rain and late buses.
