K just went home sick from work, with all the fluey signs. Fever, headache, achiness, sore throat, and so on. I just found out, but my sister had this thing last week, missing work weds-fri. In addition to the fact that being sick sucks, K has no more sick days left, and I bet anything her company will actually not pay her for any days she misses. Which is highly annoying, given how many hours of overtime (unpaid) she puts in there. Poor K! She's supposed to buy a thermometer on the way home--we'll see what it says. I too have a scratchy throat, but otherwise feel fine. I'll probably leave a little early today to go take care of K, in any case.
