Just a degree or two

I have this weird thing where I feel guilty whenever I call in sick to work. I could be laying in the OR while they reattach my arm, and I still feel bad that someone else has to cover my shift for me. On the other hand, I draw the line at going in when I'm running a fever; anyone who might be contagious needs to STAY HOME.

In this case, Emily informed me that I look like I should be laying in a hospital bed with an IV in my arm, so I'm heading back to the couch.


  1. I can't recall the last time I was truly sick, actually...

  2. I usually catch a bug at least once a year, partially due to the fact that I'm not very good at taking precautions (same reason why I usually get injured two or three times a year). I believe this is my first round of antibiotics for the year, so I'm doing okay so far.
