This past 3 weeks have been tough. Started with just a nasty chest, sinus cold not fun but really no big deal. It evolved though into something even less fun. That i can recall i have never had anything quite like it. Fever and chills seemed to be the order of the day. I call them chills but that really doesn’t describe them. I felt icy cold right down to the depth of my being, internally cold. Vi says my skin was cold to the touch. It was strange, I could be just laying in bed watching TV or reading, I would get one of those big shivers, you know the kind the ones the shake your entire body and then that cold would set in. Heating pad more blankets nothing seemed to make a difference. i just couldn’t seem to warm up. It lasted for a while, must have been 20 or 30 minutes each time. it was kind of amazing, I didn’t just sort of gradually warm up. I would be laying there shivering so hard Vi could feel the bed moving and then it would just stop. It was like the flip of a switch. i went from freezing cold to not even beeing the slightest cool just in a few seconds.
Never actually, used a thermometer, but Vi with the practiced the practiced hand every mother has, would place her hand on my forehead and pronounce me to be fevered up. i give full credit to Vi she was doing her best to care for me (the big baby). Fact of the matter was she had exactly the same thing going on at the same time. We were quite the pair. Endless coughing, the hurting to breath.
This is a nasty virus that is going around. Talking to people it seems almost everyone has had it or knows someone that has. I was going to say we suffered in silence but with all that coughing and sneezing it really wasn’t very silent just waiting to get over this nasty bug. That is until I started getting different chest pains for which I needed the nitro spray. Yes, Mel, my ear lobe is again a little longer, she dragged me to the hospital. Glad she did and I am starting to feel better
