Damn you, Swine Flu.

Damn you, you evil virus.

So... I finally talked to Jared tonight. I'm not too happy with what he had to say. Apparently half of his coworkers have swine flu. I mean, sorry, H1N1 whatever whatever flu. Jared isn't sick, but he has to cover for all of the people who are, and he is quarantining himself away from me so he doesn't get me and Babyzilla sick. So... no hanging out with Jared this weekend or next week because I have to work in the office.

I hung out with those people on Monday so hopefully my crappy immune system doesn't choose now to fail me. Not like its ever failed me in the past... not like when I had pneumonia or anything... or the 17 million times I've gotten strep. Or even the time I got that mystery rash...

I haven't been feeling in top shape this week but I'm reasonably sure I'm not coming down with the ol' H1N1. I'm going to the doctor anyway though, so I'll let her know and she can give me extra needle stabs if she wants to investigate.

Jared is more likely to get sick than I am because 1. He has been around the infected people lots more 2. I think he drank after some people at the cabin and 3. He has been eating crappy food and getting less than adequate sleep. I don't want him to get sick for a lot of reasons, but part of that is just that I don't want to have to deal with that whole thing. I mean, of course I love him and I want him to be healthy.... its just, also, I don't want to have to figure out what to do if he does get sick. I feel guilty for saying that, but its true.

Normally I'd just say, well... Its no big deal. Things'll work out and there isn't much I can do to change things anyway. But now that I have BZ floating around in me, I probably shouldn't go near anyone. Even though last week I was saying how he'd have a 90% change of being fine if he were born now, I don't really want to test that. One of the things H1N1 supposedly does is cause premature labor... Why? I don't know. The CDC website is rather cloudy on a lot of those questions. Its probably just one of those things where its better to be safe than sorry...

But seriously. Swine flu? What the heck?

Chalk that up to another reason why I don't care for his job much...
