So, I didn't end up flying the other day. I started to feel a sore throat coming on the night before and sure enough, when I woke up, I had caught something. Oh well, I still went into to brief my on-wing but I did not fly. Went to see the flight surgeon (doctor) after and he said I could not valsalva (pop your ears) properly so he put me med down. Hopefully, tomorrow, I will be able to get cleared medically so I can fly on Friday, but I'm not counting on it right now. This is one funny thing I have already learned about flying. I am by no means terrible sick, but because I am not 100% I can not fly. No toughing it out here, because a. it is not safe and b. it would not be a quality flight so why waste the time.
