After a number of autoposts I'm sort of back in the land of the living. Luckily the not-wife acted as my "flu friend" and got my Tamiflu. It does seem to take the edge off things even if I still feel rough .
The biggest bummer for me is not having flu but not being able to visit my mum in hospital. She had a mastectomy yesterday having been diagnosed with breast cancer. My dad and my sister have assured me that she is comfortable and hopefully will be out at the weekend
