The timing couldn't have been better: 6 days before the admits weekend, I caught a bad tonsilitis! So I have been in bed since Saturday. Yesterday I went to the doctor and since then I've been taking antibiotics. I have to take penicillin for the next 10 days and won't be able to drink any alcohol.
The good part is that I got to stay at home for two days longer and will only fly back to work tomorrow. Luckily I should also be fit enough on Friday to join the admits dinner and enjoy the rest of the weekend in London. The bad part is that I won't be able to drink alcohol which might reduce the fun a little bit at the dinner and the party on Saturday (especially as there are free drinks!).
I still look very much forward to the admits weekend and I'm sure I'll have enough fun just meeting lots of people. I just hope I will be well again by Friday.
