I was feeling a bit under the weather yesterday with a sore throat, but I thought I might get over it with a good night of sleep. In the evening, I took a decided turn for the worse. My temperature spiked up to 102.4, and I got pretty seriously dehydrated. Paul was working a 1 to 9 shift, so I kept getting worse until he got some ibuprofin, coconut water, potato chips (for the salt), and pineapple in me, plus got a wet towel and then an ice pack on my head.
This morning, my temperature was almost normal: it was 98.3, and I’m usually in the mid-97s. Alas, my temperature is spiking again as I type: it’s back up to 101.5.
I’ve never had a fever as an adult, so I’m a bit clueless about how to control it. Plus, I’m a bit loopy from the fever, so that doesn’t exactly help. I’m likely headed to the local urgent care center in a bit.
I hope that I’ll feel well enough tonight to host the text chat during the debate, but if not, y’all are welcome to post snarky commentary and drink without me!
