It was my first day back to work after being home sick for two days.
Being home sick is unfamiliar territory for me. The last time I can recall needing two days off for sickness was in the 4th or 5th grade when I had the flu.
On Thursday night my fever was gone and my stomach, while quaking, had not erupted for a few hours. Therefore, I prepared my lessons with the expectation that I would go to work the next day.
Friday morning came. I left my house, a bit unsteadily, and hoped for the best.
