Because of my age, he did give me a prescription to prevent this from getting worse. Pneumonia is a possibility, but my lungs are clear and it's more of a concern for people over 60. I've also slathered on Calomyn lotion and picked up some Aveeno bath for later. I'm going to get some sleep first since I only got a couple hours last night due to the itching finally kicking in. The best part of this? The earliest I can return to work is next Monday. Hee! Yes, my coworkers are none to happy. While I am contagious and can't go out, I'm not sick in the traditional sense so I can do stuff around the apartment, perhaps write, and enjoy some DVDs.
Thanks for all the well wishes on my last post. I assume you'll forgive me if I don't respond to all of you. And a special thanks to beccatoria for lifting my spirits last night. ;-)
