Yep, the cedar got me. At least I think it is cedar fever and not the flu but I feel rotten.

It is a miserable time of the year for me and especially this year as I have been babysitting and the child has been sick since Tuesday with SOMETHING -- they are treating it like the flu even though her rapid flu test came back negative. However, I don't feel fluish -- I feel allegy-ish -- itchy throat, eyes, coughing my head off but I was spiking a low grade fever last night so I don't know. However, I am really tired of coughing now and nothing seems to help. So, I will probably be off to see the little dr. man tomorrow but, in the meantime, I am probably going to have to miss my grandson's 7th birthday party. However, I would rather miss it than be in a roomful of kids and pick up who knows what from them. I am not sure what shape my immune system is in after chemo treatments so I am trying to be sensible. I have felt so good and had so much energy that I don't want to put myself in harms way. There was a time when I wouldn't think of myself first but that only got me into trouble so now I have to put myself first. It isn't easy but for now that is what I have to do.
So, I am going to start some bread in a bit, if I can quit coughing long enough to do it and that will probably be it for the day. Ugh -- don't like this -- no, not at all!
