That is where I have been for some time.
I’ve been fighting the CRUDDS, as I call it, for quite a while now….but on Friday it hit me hard. Then my temperature went to over 102 degrees for the second time on Saturday, and one of my children said I needed to go to the doctor. Well, I don’t like to go to doctors…have had enough of them, among other reasons. But the way I was feeling, it was quickly becoming the only conceivable option.
My oldest child got wind of my illness, and he and his fiance came over at around 10:30pm and decided it was time to take me to the Hospital, as my fever had gone above 103 degrees. They packed me in the car (Hey when did I become the child here), and off we went.
I guess when you get a fever that high…you jump to the top of the waiting list in the emergency room (one of a few reasons to accomplish that feat).
So…around 2am, yes you heard, 2am and 2 I.V. bags of fluid later. They came in and told me they could not find the source of infection that would spike a temperature that high, the tests came back and all they could find was….I had the beginnings of a cold!!!!
WHAT????? BEGINNINGS OF A COLD??????
I have been like this for over 3 weeks…minus the temperature…and it is the BEGINNINGS of a cold?
Well, that was an expensive explanation of my illness. Other than the fact that I was severely dehydrated (thus the 2 bags of fluid), the trip to the hospital was a bust.
I AM THE MOM…MY MOM IS NO LONGER HERE…NOW WHAT???
And something for the aches and pains…
Well enough to type a post, but not to delve into anything serious. I will do that tomorrow.
Thanks for Hearing my tale of woe!
