I think I've been hit by a freight train...

Friday, February 01, 2013

Ugh! Whatever DD shared really just sucks. Sorry... that's the only word I can come up with at this point. I think my head is going to explode. I'm so stuffy and I can't stop coughing. My ribs are actually starting to hurt from it. Plus it's one of those stupid colds where all your joints are achy. *sigh*

I REALLY wanted to call in sick this morning. My body was screaming to stay in bed. Unfortunately, I had a part of an experiment going over night that had to be finished or it would have been a total loss. There are 2 other people I work with that I would trust to hand something off to finish. Unfortunately, 1 or those 2 hasn't done this particular type of experiment before. The other has; but in this case I was in the process of tweaking the procedure to make it work for a difficult sample. I told her I thought of getting her to do it this morning and she just laughed and said she's glad I didn't ask because she doesn't want to touch that one with a 10 foot pole! LOL! There's nothing particularly bad about it; it's just a very low concentration of sample that requires a lot of TLC to get it to work. Patience is key with this one. So, I felt kind of obligated. I can stubborn my way through a lot of things. I made it until 12:30 pm. It was enough to get my sample to a safe holding point for Monday. That's all I wanted.

Here's the big bummer though... remember that equipment that failed? Remember when I said I didn't quite trust it yet? Yeah... it failed to pass the fluidics test I started yesterday. *sigh* The one good part... had I not had a bad juju lab day on Wednesday, it would have been my samples on the instrument today and not just a test. I guess there really is a silver lining to everything!

Anyway, since I came home I've pretty much slept, only waking up to eat and drink. I've been drinking water like crazy! And, I'm so hungry. I figure it must be a cold. Anyway, I'm going to eat dinner and head back to bed. Hope you all have a great weekend!

    It sounds like you're really suffering Chris- I hate colds that attack all the senses and wear you down to abject misery.

Take time out to rest hun, listen to what your body needs; fluids, light meals and REST.
