Attack Of The Sinuses  
I'd been feeling a bit congested and generally "off" yesterday, but thought it was just the usual hotel-air issues (I'm at Shore Leave this weekend). I was functioning pretty well through the afternoon, winning a game of Dominion narrowly and Ticket to Ride in a blowout (in the initial deal, I got three tickets each from the northeast corner of the country to the southwest corner, a recipe for either glory or disaster if I kept them all. I did, and it worked out).

After dinner and the masquerade, I felt a more congested and a bit lightheaded, so I went looking for a place to rest a while. Once starmalachite got a look at me and felt my temperature, she insisted that the EMTs have a look. There was no sign of it being anything worse than a nasty sinus-infection flareup (she had a bad cold last week; I seem to have gotten it worse), and everything tested normal except my blood pressure being a bit high (not surprising under the circumstances; she was clearly worried and I was still thinking clearly enough to realize that the situation just might be worse that it seemed). I was starting to feel better, but she convinced me it was probably best to head back to our hotel.

I'm feeling better now, and the fever is broken, so I'll be back at the con. I may decide to take a sick day tomorrow to fully recover, though.

Eep! Glad you're feeling a bit better, but please take care of yourself!

I hope you're better soon. Try not to let anyone catch whatever you've got.

Thanks. I'm feeling about 95% better (just enough residual sinus congestion to be annoying), but it's probably prudent to take tomorrow off just to be sure I throw it off completely.

I did get a compliment of sorts out of the whole thing; starmalachite told me that the fellow I beat in the Dominion game said "he must have been sick; he only won by four points". (Not really; I'm still getting a feel for the strategy of that game, and lose more often than win. The fact that I won all the games I played this weekend does take the edge off my disappointment at missing a chunk of the con, and at causing starmalachite to miss a chunk of the con on my behalf, so I think I'll take it at face value anyway. :-) )
