Seems my fever broke sometime last night, no longer can I stay home and waste time, time for work today...thanks to all again...

No longer Abnormal…


Temp back to almost normal,

Gonna go to work,

Gatoraid seems to have done it,

Drank that with my pills, no longer am I abnormal…


Still don’t feel really great,

Once I get into work and start driving straight,

I will get to feel better, hopefully herein I state,

Lifted from me, as it were, has been a great weight…


So after a shower and like that I will leave,

Only for 8 or so hours I do believe,

Will take my time, not to push myself too hard today,

Will notify my boss, if I don’t feel too good,

Tomorrow I will most likely stay home, don’t want to deceive,

Again thanks for all the help I did receive…

Did you know that most of the work performed by people is done by people who don't feel well? I often don't feel good myself, but I still go to work. Glad you are feeling better; but take it easy until you are in fine fettle again, okay? I care about you...

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

Wonderful write!

Good for you!
But don't overdo...
Gatorade's a "getter,"
But sleep is better.
Reviewed by Mr. Ed
Really glad to hear you are feeling better, Ed. Keep drinking the gatorade; and give Rufuz a hug; that will make you both feel better!
