Illness Strikes

Last Sunday afternoon, husband came down with a fever. He went promptly to bed missing my amazing Sunday supper and visiting with the kids.

Monday he wasn’t any better.

This is Thursday. He felt a tad better today but went to the doctor who deemed it necessary to draw blood and run a blood scan.

This evening his temperature is up to 101.7. This is a man that can't stand to be in one place at any particular time. He has to move. He has to be up and running things.

I thought it was just a virus, perhaps a nasty one.

Now I’m getting scared.

Forgive me for not writing poetry or stories.

Life sometimes gets in the way.

It sounds like Dan has a nasty case of the flu. Hope gets well very soon!

Hi Roberta,
How are things? I hope your husband is better. :-)

Thanks all for your concern. He's back to work.

The blood panel came back negative, and after 7 days with a high fever it's back to normal.

His discussion with our "health care professional"

He: You told me to call on Friday, do you have the results?

She: Call back next week. Your practitioner is out today.

He: You told me to call today.

She: Sorry.

He: WHAT MADE ME FREAKIN' SICK??!!

She: We don't have a clue.

He: Do I have to pay for this??:?!!!!!
