    Last night, I got flu and then had to see a doctor

    Hi,
    Are these sentences correct?

    Last night, I got flu and then needed to see a doctor for the flu. He prescribed some medicine and then recommended rest. He told me to have 2 days's rest.

    Consider "came down with the flu."

    He told me to rest for two days.
    He told me to take two days to rest.
    he told me to take two days' rest.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
