He looked at me seriously and replied, "If this was October, I'd have you swabbed and tested immediately."
Granted, cool weather is when flu spread becomes a serious issue, but I thought they wanted to keep an eye on H1N1. Besides, antibiotics are contra-indicated in flu cases.
So the way I see it, he's treating me for a routine bug but telling me there's a chance I might have actually had a mild (well, relatively mild) case of the flu; and since I'd mentioned earlier that my HSA account was almost empty, maybe he was just trying to save me the bill for the test. I'd feel like a self-diagnosing paranoid if I asked him, and besides -- I'm feeling better. Comments? Is there a doctor in the house?
