Propped Up

I sincerely hope none of you catch whatever this thing is I have.  I haven't been this sick in years.  Yesterday was the worst.  My temp was over 100 all day, in fact at one point it spiked so high I was hallucinating.  I couldn't keep anything but little sips of water down.  All I did was lay in bed coughing, perspiring and shivering.  Luckily R didn't know since he had to be out of town last night.  I didn't tell him how bad it was because I knew he would have come home.

Finally about 9:15 last night my fever broke.  I thought great finally...I felt better.  That lasted all of about 20 minutes before we started round 2.  It was a rough night. 

Today I am slightly better.  My temp is down to 99, I can prop myself up for about a half hour at a time, and I finally ate a tiny bit of soup.  I have an ear ache though.

I am hoping it passes soon, I have to get to work because the show is coming up quickly and I am not ready.  I also have two pieces to be shipped and the post office may as well be a million miles away right now.  It took every ounce of energy I could muster yesterday to take the trash down for pick up.

I will be back when I feel better.  Take care of yourselves!

Could you possibly have Mono? It sounds like the symptoms I had during the time when I got Mono... I have never felt so miserable in my life.

I don't think so, I don't know how I would have caught that. Besides it's pretty uncommon in adults my age. I think it's just a nasty flu.

Oh you poor thing! I feel your pain, sounds just like what I had last week. I was out of it for almost 2 weeks. Uhggg!! Stay hydrated and just rest, rest, rest, that's all you can really do until it decides to leave you. (I hadn't been that sick in years either) Take care, I'll be thinking of you. ;)
