I am still new at this site, so bear with me while I get used to where to write what..... Had another scare at the end of last week. I seem to be a magnet to any flu or virus with my weakened immune system....giving me a great excuse to sleep a little longer in the morning (glad I've been on 2nd shift since 1993).
Last Thursday evening I spiked a fever...I felt it...quick it hit me BAMMM! Went to Medical Dept, they know my history, sent me home. Fever and BAD diarrhea. In bed from 7:30 Thursday night, until 6 AM Saturday when my fever finally broke. Up every 1/2 hour to stagger to the bathroom. Delirious.
Lost almost 9# in 6 days. Still feel headachy. very dehydrated. Doctor put me out until next Monday. I am so slow to bounce back from anything these days, I was actually glad for the extra few days to get myself back together..... I am learning what compromised immune system is all about, that's for sure!
