I had my last 2 weeks for 2017 planned – should not have done that. I was scheduled for a Radio Frequency treatment on Thursday to help the back pain!
On Wednesday I started a little cough and thought it was Cedar allergies. UNTIL 7PM that evening! By 8 I was in full-blown ‘Oh Oh I am getting sick’. By 10 PM I called the answering service for my Pain Management and cancelling the Thursday appointment. I started my antibiotic and Tylenol to hopefully control the fever.
By Thursday evening I was headed to the Urgent Care in LV. I found out that I had the Type A Flu! Wonderful! I was given a shot of Motrin which did stop some of the aching, but the fever is still with me. The doctor told me it would 7 days and by the 10th day I would feel more like myself! WHAT?
So I am now into Day 5 of this misery and I am slowly getting better, but it has been a total bummer! I could not take the Tamiflu that was given to me so I continued on with my antibiotic.
Yesterday Clay started coming down with it. He has started the Tamiflu and hopefully it will help him.
I am going to assume that when we went shopping on Monday to the Apple Store and WalMart we somehow were exposed to this stuff. If you start getting a funny type of little cough – head to the nearest doctor! I lost my appetite, using an inhaler, living on Tylenol and an antibiotic for the congestion. I am weak and it will take me some time to get over this, but maybe it was not meant for me to get the RF treatment now. That is the only consolation I can take. I am hoping that today I might feel like some hand work.
We are hoping that we will be well for Christmas Day as it will be the first Christmas we will spend with Melissa. Until I become normal again, have a great week.
