Thanks to everyone for the words of concern. I am heading to work today. I'm sure I have in excess of 200 emails to take care of, plus whatever else awaits.
I don't think it is the mumps. I can "walk" just fine and I don't have lumps around my mouth. Mumps has been in the news a lot here lately.
I do have two kids, if you click on my name you can see a picture of them!
I still am a little under the weather but feeling a little bit better. Tonight I'll try the hot honey and whiskey remedy (if my wife buys it)
