I now know why I had a 101-degree temperature. My doctor’s office called this afternoon alerting me to the results of the nasal swab and blood sample. I was reluctant to go the doctor on Monday but high fevers unnerve me, so in we went. They were concerned enough at the clinic to also give me an x-ray, but my smoke free lungs were fine. (Yeah, I may be sick but this is still a political blog!) I have influenza, but as my white blood cells are strong they are only recommending fluids and rest. Since I feel a little exhausted I may not blog for a day or two. But even with a fever I voted on Tuesday….if you had no fever and did not vote…….shame!
The odd thing is my appetite over the past three days has not changed. I am hungry and eating like I am totally fine. James would have it no other way! Mashed potatoes and gravy still looks great. My chest feels lousy, my nose is running, my fever is now low-grade, and the new box of chocolate covered cherries are nearly gone. Go figure!
Will be back soon.
