I don’t believe that I get sick very often, but I don’t have any way to measure or reference my past health other than by my memory, which does contend that February is the month when I am most likely to become miserably sick. I rarely go to the doctor when I get sick; I just tough it out until the cold, flu, allergy, or combination thereof passes. Today ends week-number-one of what started off as a non-fever head cold, which turned into a full-fever head cold, which evolved into a head cold enhanced by a chest cold. If I recall correctly, this can hang on for another week or more. The fever broke after a couple of days so there is some chance that I am on the mend. I canceled my annual eyeball inspection that was scheduled for tomorrow. Contingent on my feeling less contagious next week, the exam was rescheduled for next Wednesday.
