slow improvement
nanowrimo 2010
I am feeling the first relief I've felt since Saturday. My throat has miraculously improved. I think a pot of coffee yesterday (warm liquid) and repeated doses of antibiotics and a throat spray have finally beaten the infection into retreat.

My fever refuses to break, still 101.2° as we speak. It has been as high as 103.5° (on Sunday).

I still can't eat. I find that pretty alarming. I have only had one previous experience that killed my appetite. I had diriticulitis some years ago and wound up having a chunk of colon removed. They put in a temporary colostomy that I endured for about 8 weeks. Having my asshole re-routed to my waist in the front and having a baggie of shit hanging from my belt for two months effectively curbed my appetite. So has this flu. Amazing to me. Checked my sugar and it is still over 200. After a little over a day of fasting that is alarming. Dr. Diesel said that if my sugar isn't under control quickly it's going to be injections of insulin. I am not looking forward to that.

Time to nap.

Just wanted you to know that I have Wrinklies in my Friends list, so I read your post there and then added you also to my Friends list.

I hope you get better soon!


I noted you on my friends list and wondered where the connexion was.
