So I’m still sick. I really thought I was turning a corner over the weekend, I even went to work yesterday morning, but by noon I was dizzy and needed to rest. Today I was worse again, so I went to the dr’s. I have had a fever for almost a week so that was enough to be seen (finally).
I have the flu (surprise surprise), but no confirmation on whether or not it was h1n1. I also have a secondary lower respiratory infection (aka pneumonia) on my left hand side. I’ve been prescribed antibiotics, a puffer, and codeine (for the cough). Of course, this afternoon while I was waiting for my prescription to be dropped off, my fever spiked from 38.3 to over 39 (102). I’m so thankful my mom was able to get off work early, pick up Alex and take care of him. I really cannot function on my own. The interesting thing is that the Dr said when I”m feeling better to go get the seasonal flu shot – he didn’t say anything about the h1n1 shot. He asked me if I have ever felt so sick – I said no – he said – yep – it’s the flu. I’m not to go back to work until I’m 100%, let’s hope I can resume duties as normal by Monday!
This week really was supposed to be full of happy celebrations:
Monday – Alex turned 18 months old
Tuesday – Alex has been with us 9 months
Wednesday (well, you will see tomorrow)
Thursday – Alex has been in Canada 9 months
Friday – The first Christmas Open House of the season!
Weekend – Go away for a family get away
So, while there is still reason to celebrate, I just have no energy to do so. I really doubt we will go away this weekend which is a HUGE let down. Oh well – my health needs to come first.
Thank you for letting me vent a bit, being this sick is very frustrating! I need to go rest some more…
