Well, so much for doing research or much of anything else today. Yesterday after work I went to get vaccinated against the flu, and by early evening I had developed a terrific headache. Then I became nauseous…and will let you imagine the rest. Mamma mia! Suffice it to say that I still felt icky enough to call my doctor this morning, thinking that I could have had a reaction to the vaccine, but he told me it sounded more like a viral thingie that is going around Florence and should last no more than 24 hours. Oh well, no biggie, then. I might have picked up this bug at Careggi hospital on Monday. Or perhaps even before then…drat, I hope it won’t interfere with my test results.
Anyway, even though by now (midday) I do feel better, I am going to stay in bed and watch movies and documentaries until Stefano gets home from work. Speaking of staying in bed, this morning three of my nursing cats were lying on me: Piccolo (all eight kilos of him!) on my chest, with his paws wrapped around my neck, purring loudly and batting his eyes reassuringly at me; little Peekaboo just behind him, purring on my abdomen, and Priscilla asleep on my legs. Now that would have been a great photo! But of course there was nobody here to take it.
Anyway, tomorrow I will be fine. This is just a little bug.
