I didn’t ride to work on Friday. I had a scratchy throat most of last week, but I ignored it. By Friday it had gotten worse. By Friday night it had gotten quite unbearable.
I waited until today (Sunday) hoping it would get better, it didn’t. I went to the urgent care clinic and it was quickly determined that I have strep.
I had initially planned to ride to Louisville on Saturday to help Tom move. I was also hoping to ride with Tim today. Those plans didn’t happen. Instead, I’m home-bound, trying to recover, and avoid spreading the bacteria to anyone else.
I’m also staying home tomorrow to avoid sharing this with anyone, but I should be safe to return to work on Tuesday. If I’m feeling well, I’ll even ride my bike and attend Car-Free Happy Hour afterwards.
