I feel so much better it is unbelievable. The doctor said this bug generally lasted three to four days, and my body decided to follow the norm for a change. I still took today off work, just in case, and I'm glad I did. I'll go to work tomorrow, though. I hope it isn't oppressively hot again. We seem to get heat in July and air conditioning in November. The air circulation is non-existent, and moving three feet within the office puts you in a different temperature zone. Layers of clothing are the only way to survive.
Anyway, as for now, time for some more hot tea. I like hot tea even when I'm healthy, and regularly drink several cups a day, so keeping hydrated was no big deal.
