I was right, there’s no way I can make it into work today and no reason that I should. This sore throat has gotten really bad and if I don’t get better tomorrow there is a real chance I won’t get to start my new medication tomorrow.

I’m still hopeful since I don’t have a fever but, like I said, this medication is new and I don’t know exactly how it works. I also don’t know how it’ll make me feel. I’m worried even if I do go ahead with the infusion I’ll only compound my pain.

But I can;t worry about that right now. I can’t do anything at all right now, but rest. Eat, sleep, take medication, drink water, and sleep some more, that’s all I have on my to-do list for today, and for the foreseeable future.
