On the Mend?

Don't forget to sign up for the necklace giveaway contest here... contest closes tomorrow at noon - so don't miss out!

Well, yesterday certainly ended up being strange. My boss wanted me to leave the office almost immediately after I got there, but I ended up leaving around 2. We made our 45 minute drive home, and just about 5 minutes before we got there - I called my doctor's office to give them my updated contact number.

When I called - they were just about to call me and tell me that they had a new prescription for me, and some information about my other symptoms. My other symptom was dizziness, and he said that it was dehydration - and that I needed to drink LOTS of fluids or I'd have to be admitted to the hospital for fluids. The prescription that he wanted to call in can only be filled at the hospital - you'd be shocked at how hard it is to get liquid antibiotics!

So we turned the car around and went to get the medicine at the hospital. I took it when we got home, and my fever immediately spiked up again... apparently whatever this bug is - it doesn't like the fact that I'm trying to hunt it down and kill it!

My fever stayed high all the way through our small group meeting - in which John had me sit in his leather recliner... and I promptly sweated through my clothes... EWWW! I made it through the meeting, and by the time everyone left - John told me to go ahead and email my boss to tell her that I wasn't going to be able to make it in the office today.

I did just that - and then slept until 9 this morning. It was nice since I didn't sleep AT ALL the night before. Since then - I've moved to the couch, and John has made me soup and taken care of my every need. He's a wonderful nurse!

I'm feeling a bit better this morning - but it could be a lull between fever symptoms. Who knows, but I hope that I'm getting better - because I'd love to get out of the house for a little while today. It's sad when you get sooooo bored that going to the grocery store and Office Depot sounds like a welcomed distraction!
