Thank you to everyone for the countless notes of encouragement through Facebook, DM, email, text and posts to this blog. I hope to be able to write back to each of you — but it might take some time!
Here’s the latest update for you: nothing much has changed since yesterday. I woke up this morning and still felt weak, dizzy and slightly nauseous. I also still had a temperature of 100.8 — ugh. I dragged myself into the shower and got ready to go to physical therapy.
After PT, I forced myself to eat some chicken noodle soup (I have no appetite these days) so that I could take my antibiotic and other various pills (omega, probiotic and vitamin D) that require food in your belly. I tried to lay down and take a nap, but my head was pounding and I felt like I was just getting worse and worse.
Paul came home to keep vigil over me. After listening to me caterwaul for over an hour, we finally decided I should take some Tylenol and a Loraz (to counteract my temperature and nausea).
OH, and of course, whenever my body betrays me — it really betrays me — so I also have a UTI coming on (TMI?). Thankfully, this antibiotic I’m on will clear the UTI up too.
Now I just need this antibiotic to do its magic.
I’ll leave you with this — the darkest hour is just before the dawn — and tomorrow is a new day (can’t you tell the Loraz has kicked in?! At least I’m trying to turn my frown upside down today!)
