I woke up Friday the morning of the 6th thinking I had a sore throat. So I left a message advising my callers that I was taking the day off. The next thing I knew it was Saturday night! My throat was none the better and I had a hell of a fever. I called the grocery store and asked them to make a delivery of fruit juices and the like. I woke up again on Monday morning. My throat was slightly better but the fever was raging. Someone let the delivery guy in on Sunday so I had plenty of crushed ice and juice to sip on. I felt awful and couldn’t stay awake for longer than half an hour. I called my physician and she agreed to see me later in the day. How many of you have doctor’s that make house calls? I do! The maid let her in and together they woke me up.
I don’t believe in popping pills or taking drugs to get rid of a cold. I’m a firm believer that if you give it time the illness will run its course. So my prescription was plenty of sleep and lots of fluids. By Wednesday or Thursday, my throat was better and some of you might remember that I left a message to that effect. However, the following day I had a relapse – sleeping all the time with a high fever.
The verdict? They don’t know. It was pneumonia with mono-like characteristics. What I do know is that if it weren’t for my age and excellent health, I wouldn’t be here writing this now. So, that’s where I have been for the past two weeks. Now it’s time to play ball!
Take care of yourselves and tomorrow I begin my regular schedule.
