Feeling Better and Temps Near Normal
Well SO Far so Good! I slept incredibly well last night. Of course Maisy woke me up at 3:30 but held off til almost 5 this morning. I think I may have sweated it out last night but can't tell for sure since I was asleep. I have a near normal temp this morning. Since I was 100.8 going to bed last night, I decided to stay home today til I'm fever free. I feel much better than yesterday. Yesterday (last night) I was pretty grouchy so I took that as a sign that I would get better.
I've had a bit more energy and most of all "will" is coming back. Yesterday and the day before I might have been able to start a load of laundry - but had no desire to follow through. Today I can think a bit better and have more of a will to want to do things. I have had some of these each morning though. For example right now, I don't have the energy I had when I first got up but I've changed sheets, done laundry, rebooted dishwasher and taken stuff downstairs that needs to go in storage. I didn't feel like doing that yesterday or the day before.
George has fixed us eggs this morning and I put mine on whole grain with a little mayo. Ok a lot of mayo. And it hit the spot. I think George made some homemade lemonade last night and I'm about to go get some of that.
I'm working from home today and resting too off an on. I am not swollen in the glands or sore there in the neck anymore. Was a little concerned yesterday afternoon that I was hurting in the back of my neck and stiff - but was comforted by the fact it was only muscles and went away. I think it's the way I've been sitting/laying. I laid flat last night - risking drainage going in chest and got the best sleep and also neck was relieved.
Once I get better I plan to continue with nutrition, cooking some wonderful meal ideas, and working on muscle fitness - especially with arms and hands.
Til then, I'm still moving very slow and plan to get my much craved hamburger and fries tonight. George has agreed! ;-) I've een craving for two weeks now. Even during the flu, lol.
I need to go. I need to get on with work emails, take a shower, and then back to working on the laptop and getting a few things done.
Actually looking forward to going to work tomorrow unless the fever comes back strong - I think it won't but I could be wrong. I began getting stir crazy yesterday - last night the worst and getting very irritable.
So I'm glad for the turnaround this morning and hopeful for it's continuance. Glad for it not being as severe as some. I know I'm not out of the woods yet as most of the severe issues occurred after people got better. So that is kind of scary.
But we are hopeful all will be well.
Ya'll take care!
