Called in sick today...

So, last week I called in sick. Not sure if it was emotional, or really that my foot hurt, but man, it hurt. And now I have cheeks as pink as Clifford the Big Red Dog's. I'm living on Airborne and Zicam. Bought some of that fancy OJ at the store this morning.
Why is it that I feel SO guilty calling in sick. I mean, I'm actually sick, and I wouldn't want me dealing with my newborn. I don't work in an industry in which being sick is something you should just "work through." However my first job as an RN, we weren't able to call in sick. It was a joke.
Of course, being that I'm per diem, I don't actually get "sick days" (I can call in sick, but I am not paid for it.
And when I cough I think my teeth are going to come out... anyone have any home cures?


  1. I'm sorry to hear you're feeling rotten. Wish I had a good cure to help you out. Sending healthy vibes your way...

  2. oh MAN, I'm so sorry that you're sick. Hope the drugs the doctor gave you get you a speedy recovery.

  3. Ooh, I'm sorry you are not feeling well. But as a new mom, I'd have to say that I WOULD NOT LIKE it if you came in coughing and hacking all over my newborn!! Much better to be wise and stay home and rest, Hilary!!!! : ) Did you hear that? You must REST! LOL! No cleaning!

  4. Sorry to hear that you are under the weather but you made the right choice about not going to work!! Take care and feel better. REST REST REST is the best thing for any illness, I believe!
