That is, until we got back home. On Friday morning I had the runs. Saturday brought a 101 degree fever. I’ve been shivering/sweating for the past 6 days, inbetween sleeping on the couch and making a few-too-many trips to the bathroom.
A few interesting things I’ve learned from this experience:
- Immobilizer A-D may be available over the counter, but it is not the best product on the market. Lomotil does a better job when you really need the strong stuff.
- A 128 oz bottle of Gatorade lasts about a day and a half when it’s the only sustenance you’re consuming.
- The medical definition of a fever is 100.4°. Anything between 98.6° and 100.3° is considered a “temperature”, but not a fever.
I’m still waiting for lab results to find out if the cause is viral, bacterial, or parasites. Bleh.
