Monday.
My hopes this morning were dashed as soon as I took a breath. A stuffy nose. Achoo! I had not yet fully recovered.
I went to work sounding a little worse for wear and it only went downhill from there. My voice got hoarser, my throat felt raspier, my urge to cough grew greater. 
I felt miserable. Yet here I was, seeing patients in the emergency department. I developed a metric for the patients I saw: if you felt and looked better than me, you were probably not sick enough to stay in hospital.
Worked like a charm.
And I still feel terrible.

Monday.

My hopes this morning were dashed as soon as I took a breath. A stuffy nose. Achoo! I had not yet fully recovered.

I went to work sounding a little worse for wear and it only went downhill from there. My voice got hoarser, my throat felt raspier, my urge to cough grew greater. 

I felt miserable. Yet here I was, seeing patients in the emergency department. I developed a metric for the patients I saw: if you felt and looked better than me, you were probably not sick enough to stay in hospital.

Worked like a charm.

And I still feel terrible.
