You all know it’s not normal for me to not write for a few days. I wasn’t online anywhere since Tuesday because I had some form of a sickness overcome me. You see a few weeks ago I started getting so tired and sleepy that I could barely stay awake.
Then I went to the river with my friend, her kids and my kids on Tuesday, then back to her house. We had a good time for only a short period of time. I do recall waking up feeling like my throat was a bit sore but I just assumed that was from the night time air coming in through my air conditioner for that happens sometimes.
Then it hit me, Tuesday night, sick as a dog. My fever started at 100.7 and wouldn’t go away. Still today, I have a fever of about 100 degrees. Two nights ago I was at 103 all night long and couldn’t sleep more than half an hour at a time. I have not kept any food nor drink down in my system since Tuesday.
I decided, I have to go to the hospital. So I went, they did a urine test and came back saying “Good news, you don’t have a UTI and you are not pregnant” as if I would be preggers anyways …. so they got me ready for an IV because I was very very low on fluids. They drew blood, put a 1000ml of fluid IV drip on me and there I laid in the hospital.
They ran my blood work, they decided to take chest and abdomenal xrays, my first xrays of my life! Coming back from the xray area, the ER doc came in to tell me he thinks I will live, at least until December when the Mayan calendar ends. He was a funny doc, anyways, the blood, the xrays — everything showed normal status. It seems I have one nasty bug.
And it’s still with me, so my life is consisting of laying in bed, living on the toilet and taking baths to try to keep my temp down. Also trying to take care of kids, it’s a wonderful time. I Just hope that my kids do not get this, it’s the most awful sickness I have ever had. And nope, I still can’t keep any fluids nor food down
BUT I do have work to do or else I make no money, so I will be periodically getting online in my office to get some work done so I can still pay bills. After all being sick means the house is a mess but it can’t mean I lose too much money.
