The Grad is Sick!
My poor girl had a bit of a headache on Saturday, chalking it up to the stress of commencement. Sunday she started really feeling bad, and Monday went to Urgent Care. They hooked her up to an IV (she was dehydrated), took a swab from her nose, and put a mask on her. Ten minutes later, it was confirmed....she has the 'flu! They didn't test for H1N1 (Swine flu), which just baffles me. They told her they only do that if they admit the person to the hospital. (So, there are probably many more cases than we know for sure, because they aren't testing.) After she spent a few hours there, they sent her home, telling her not to go back to work (she's a high school English teacher) for a week, and to wear her mask, even at home.
Her husband is taking very good care of her, thank God, and she's even emailed me a couple times, so I think she'll be all right. They've been joking that she has to wear the mask to hide her pig snout. :-)
So, this card was made for my poor sick baby. I think she'll find it amusing, given the circumstance.
