Back from the dead

Well, this labor day weekend I was planning on doing nothing. I had a full 4 day weekend, and I was excited for it. My in laws were coming to town for a wedding so that usually means lots of eating and drinking and what have you, and that was fine by me. It was all going to plan except for when I got off work on Thursday evening to start my weekend, something hit me like a truck. I was fine at 5:00 driving home and by 5:30 felt like shit. I managed to go out to eat that night, but by 9 or so I was incapacitated. Friday I literally couldn't get out of bed for most of the day and Saturday my mother in law (former nurse) strongly suggested that I go urgent care. So, I went and waited in line for 45 minutes (I let a couple people go ahead of me cause they were hurt pretty bad) and then sat and had tests run on me for about 2 hours or so. Basically I don't have the flu, strep or anything like that but my white blood cell count was through the roof so they figured I was fighting something. They gave me some drugs and said to sleep, which I've been doing alot of. Today I managed to get out and do some stuff and am feeling quite a bit better, right in time to go back to work tomorrow. Awesome (queue thumbs down and fart noise).

Possible answers.

Maybe, as a vampire, just your red blood cell count was low.

You failed to mention that you had all pick ups, speakers, moved to the bedroom (also the quietest room in the house).

You wanted to watch "Handy Mandy labor day extravaganza" uninterupted.

Take care

never found out what it was. They did enough tests, you'd think they could come up with something.
