Well it was a tough week for me. A nasty viral infection certainly took hold and had me out for the count for several days. Likely it doesn't help that I continue to take my chemo, which also increases fatigue and general crapitis feeling.
I ended up on two antibiotics and the blasted fever continued on into Friday, causing me much angst, phone calls to cancer clinic, and some negotiating to save me an even more dreaded trip back to ER..... I should have gone Friday night, but in reality I could not face the Friday night crowd, so I packed up ready to go, then I stayed home, watched my temp, monitored myself and decided every hour what to do... and then near morning, the temperature just improved! Spent the rest of the weekend in bed, and finally today, I think I am on the mend!
So, this week is looking up! It's a new week, hence the spring like floral photo......And the good news? Well, despite tremendous amounts of hacking, coughing and nose blowing, I was able to breath relatively well.... So I think that is a good sign of things to come, at least that is my determination.
Cheers to all for a peaceful, virus free week. Wash your hands like maniacs, this last one hit all of us Schweitzers despite our OCD-like behaviors around the hand-washing.
