Missed work yesterday, came home at noon today. I have a cold with a nasty cough that just doesn't want to go away. I rarely miss work, but boy, I'm just not toughing out this condition. I sat in a meeting this morning and coughed, and coughed--decided I wouldn't want to be in a meeting if someone was coughing like I was, so I made my excuse and left. Even with cold medicine, I'm struggling. I don't think it's anything more serious, no fever, it's not a bronchitis or pneumonia type of cough. 

On a good note, I've lost 3.5 lbs. in the last two weeks, before I got sick. Working hard--except for yesterday and today--it's been an applesauce and chicken soup couple of days.
