Sounds like you've got it on the run, but try and take it easy, a relapse is nothing to fool with.

I'm having Teresa drive me to Acute Care to finally get some help for this.  I'm worn down to the bone.  Fever was nearly gone this morning, but is creeping back up again.

Hope you feel better. My son had a respiratory infection. He'd cough so hard he'd gag. In the evening his fever would start coming back and sometime during the night it would break. He had a rough time.

Might be the same type of bug that you have.

Sounds just like me now.  They did a test & confirmed flu.  I am so shot.  Been 5 hours since we left for Urgent Care.

Lots of rest and plenty of fluids!

My son had a rough time getting over it. Hard to get a 20 month old to sit down and rest. He wanted to run hard then he'd get all hot and start coughing.

You've probably been sweating like the critter in your avatar---JK!

 

You are one of the most ambitious folks I've ever seen judging by your posts. Maybe you could slow down and pace yourself just a smidgin so's you don't get worn down too much? Heck you could darn near come to a complete stop and get more done in a day than I ever could!

 

Get well soon Daniel!

Fever is nearing 102 and I'm cold to the bone.  Ate some soup, now gonna lay down & put about a dozen blankets over me.  I've been laying down for an hour and a half till Teresa got home from Good Friday at church.  

Over this weekend besides getting the porta-pot, I have to drive the payloader out & fill a few tile sinkholes.  Plus I have a lot of Brinly items I hope to sell some of on plow day, and have to get them loaded.  Bosses have no problems letting me off for plow days.  I may end up though needing help come Friday with some of it.  

Good to hear you plan to ask for help. Just let us know!

I'm afraid my ambition to get a lot accomplished is waning quite a bit.  If I could afford it, I would kick back a while & do very little.  Teresa bought a new toilet seat 3 days ago though, so I would install that!  :smilewink:

It is getting harder all the time to deal with life's challenges it's throwing at us.  We have been several years with one major problem after another with no letup at all.  It gets depressing.  I can't even make it to my first public paycheck without possibly taking a few days off.  I hope it doesn't screw up my job.  My bosses are my friends, but they still have a business to run and I understand that.

No one has ever been able to fully predict sick. And everyone is sick differently. If one must take a day or two off to kick it, it is understandable by most businesses that respect people (friends are best usually).

I had a bad stomach bug the same week the two bosses were on vacation and had to take two days off against my will to recover. A company of about 12 employees and that week 5 employees called in sick over the course of that week. Funny thing is, the bosses called 4 of them into their office when they returned, and looked at me and said "Damn, you must have been real sick because you never call off." Bosses always know their employees, they know the true hard workers, and they want them at their best, even if it means they need a day or two to rest up and get better.

I just woke to NO FEVER!   My head still feels all spacy, my rib cage like someone beat me with a hammer, and weak as a kitten, but I feel like I want to join the living today!  Going to do my best to follow Dr orders, but I do need to go get the porta-pot, but I'm enlisting help.  The only other thing I must do is feed silage, which is a simple easy job if nothing breaks.

I did go mow for 20 minutes or so, but just that drained me, so I came on in.  I may hit the grass another time or 2, just mowing a few minutes at a time.....unless Teresa grounds me!

Dr said he didn't want me going to work till I felt 80% normal.  Fever has returned as it usually does in the afternoon, and I have almost no energy. I took a nap after lunch which I haven't done since my neck surgery.   Afraid I'll have to call my boss & tell him I just can't make it tomorrow, maybe not for a few days, then I'm already off Friday & Saturday.  As bad as I feel, it feels worse to call in sick.  I'll wait till later in the evening as he may be at an Easter family gathering.
