The doctor says:
~On the good side, I don't have pneumonia
~I have bad "flu-like" symptoms
~maybe mild bronchitis
~she's concerned that I've been sick as long as I have
~my pink eyes is viral and part of my virus, so no medicine for it
~that my bronchial tubes are pretty raw and I am weak to other infections
She told me some specific medicine I should be taking and some things to hopefully make me feel better. I am not sure why, but she said she isn't allowed to specifically say I have the flu. Maybe because everyone is so scared of the flu and H1N1. Maybe because she thinks I might have more but it's inconclusive. Who knows.
The medicine is making me feel better though. Not significantly, but little bits here and there. At least I am blowing my nose and coughing less, which means less rawness and less blood.
I am going to try to return to school tomorrow. It is a half day and none of the classes I teach will be tomorrow. So I can see how it goes and hopefully get some work done.

Onto something more interesting . . . crafting goals. Holy heavens did I overestimate my crafting abilities/time when I thought I could dedicate each day to a craft. Well, lets just that hasn't happened. I haven't worked on any crafts since I started student teaching and have been sick. So, I have new goals for February:
*Finish Echo's purse handles, so her and the girl's Christmas presents can be mailed off.
*Finish Pay It Forward Gifts and mail off. (These are going to be a little late due to having been sick.
Simple goals, but they are important ones for me to finish.
