Safeguard Your Health

Today is the fourth day in a row that I am not working. I was sick since Monday. I have cough and fever and I absolutely don't feel well so I called my supervisor informing her that I can't come to work. I thought I will be okay the following day but I was wrong. Yesterday, I went to see my doctor and thanks God she confirmed to me that it was just a normal flu not the scary H1N1 virus and she said that base on the signs I am already on my way to full recovery. She advised me to drink a lot of fluids, have some rest, take Tylenol every 4 hours if I still have my fever and she prescribed a medicine for my cough. However, she told me that I have to wait tomorrow, Friday, to go back to work to give my body ample time to relax and get well. However, I was warned by her that if I will have a body temperature of above 100F, I should not go back to work coz that means I still have a slight fever. She explains to me that it is just for precautionary measure. Anyway, I am now excited to go back to work tomorrow. However, since our office are only open on weekdays, so tomorrow will be my first and last day at work for this week... LOL
