On Tuesday I woke with a sore throat. Nothing too bad, but sore. A nuisance. I didn’t get dressed and I kind of sipped some chamomile tea with honey, hoping I would feel better.
By noontime, I was chilled and went to bed. I took my temperature and it was only slightly elevated. But I felt so sleepy.
At four o’clock my temperature was up well over 101 degrees. And as hot as I was, I felt chilled to the bone.
Since I am experienced with high fevers I sort of knew what was about to hit. At 2:00 AM my temperature hit 102.8!
I downed juice, Tylenol and more cough syrup, which probably explains my slightly sick stomach this morning.
My temperature is down and I am feeling slightly better. Enough so, so that I took a shower and changed my nightie.
I forced some toast into my body, and more water and juice, and in a bit, I will go back to bed for a nap.
My constant nurse has been Mr. Arnie Man. He quite literally never leaves my side. Even when I was in the shower he sat on the bath rug and waited for me. What a boy!
Now let the healing up begin! I simply detest Autumn colds!
