The "Tower" has fallen
I've never been one to get sick easily. In college, my roommate, Pat, started referring to this quality as the "Tower of Immunity." On the rare occasions that I did get sick, Pat seemed to take great pleasure in announcing that the tower had fallen.

After well over a year (maybe 2) without getting sick, the "Tower" has fallen once again. By 6PM last night, I had a 101 degree fever and generally felt lousy. The fever has continued today and has been joined by a nagging cough and a runny nose. Woo hoo!

I was able to get my doctor to prescribe Tamiflu. If taken in the first 48 hours of symptoms, it is supposed to lessen their severity and shorten the overall illness. We'll see.
