24-hour death bed!

Okay, so the night before last I woke up in the middle of the night not feeling well. The whole stomach thing and very achy. So after I got my shower yesterday morning I felt better but as the day went on, I was feeling m-i-s-e-r-a-b-l-e. Fever, chills, achy, coughing, on and on. So I figured after I got off of work I’d go to the walk-in clinic. Seriously, people, every room was taken. It was packed. Everyone had the same bright idea as I did to go there. I got there at 5:30pm and didn’t leave until after 8pm.

Turned out I had a fever of 101.9. They did what they had to do and then sent me back out to the lobby and thus the long wait began. When I finally got back there they tested me for everything and I turned out negative for everything. So I had the case of the general flu. They gave me 800 mg of ibuprofen to knock out the fever and headache and they have me on Amoxicillin. So I got that prescription filled last night and it’s amazing what medicine and rest will do.

I woke up this morning feeling like a new person, so bizarre. I still have a cough, but other than that I’m feeling so much better.

So this is what I call the 24-hour death bed, because that’s what it felt like yesterday! I seriously thought I was going to die and it’s like I’ve been resurrected today, haha!

I’m so behind on catching up with everyone and the Grand Canyon pictures are to come!!

Oh No! I'm so sorry you felt bad. Just take it easy & don't over-do yourself just yet. That virus is still in your system. I'm not a nurse or anything, but i get it EVERY year! Hope you continue to feel 100%!
