I'm sick, and since I'm home alone, I'm going to whine to all of you about it. LOL
On Friday, I started coughing--just a dry, hacking cough. It was the kind of cough that in the past has left me sounding like Froggy from The Little Rascals. This time, I kept my voice. When I woke up Saturday, I felt like someone had run over me with a Mack truck--headache, stuffy head, sneezing, coughing, fever. John was going out, so I asked him to pick up some cold medicine for me. He brought back NyQuil liqui-gel. I took a dose, and then I slept for quite a while. I didn't feel any better Sunday. I slept almost the whole way home from Hartselle, and then I was asleep again not long after we got home. Basically, my entire weekend was spent sleeping.
Typically, when I have a cold, I can shake it enough within a couple of days so that I can function, but that isn't happening this time. When I woke up this morning, my head felt like someone had split it in two with an axe and my temp was up a little. I called in, which is something I RARELY ever do, but I knew that I wouldn't be very productive. I got to the doctor's office not long after they opened. The doctor I WANTED to see was only seeing patients with appointments this week, so I had to see the other one. NOTE TO SELF--next time, make an appointment, even if it means waiting all day to get in.
When they took my temp at the office, it was 98.6, but I knew that wasn't right. I know when I have a temp! Since I got home, it hasn't dropped below 100.4. So, I'm not really thinking I have "just a cold." I don't think it's the flu because I don't have the aches associated with flu. However, I'm not a doctor, even though I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express before. :)
Maybe I'll be able to catch up on some blog reading. Sorry if this sounds totally disjointed.
Have a GREAT day.
