Mark's Very Awful Day

For about two weeks now Mark has been suffering from (what seems like) his three-times-a- year cold...

...which always develops into a chronic cough...
...which (after much prodding by me and way too much time spent sick at work) results in a trip to the doctor...
...after which he's on five days of antibiotics...
...which helps the cough but never really cures it...
...and so on until the next time...

But yesterday's result from his most recent "cold" was different. After his usual trip to the doctor, it was off to get a chest x-ray - with a little PUKE thrown in. Actually it was a LOT OF PUKE, most of which left his body during the short trip from our house to the radiology office for the x-ray. That, as you can imagine, was really pleasant for all involved (especially me as the driver). Of course, it begs the question: did he have a plastic bag - YES.

He was a complete physical wreck all day. Mid-day he checked his voicemail at work and got a message that several of his co-workers had come down with food poisioning, possibly from a box lunch they all ate on Tuesday. Well, there you have it.

He's going to attempt to go to work today. That curse-ed work ethic!
