Welp, Larry and I both have the flu. Just what we needed right before I start stims. Tuesday he called in to work, and then ended up going to urgent care with a 103 fever when they told him he had the flu. I had an itchy throat all day, but didn't think anything of it. As soon as I got home, I lysoled the entire house and stayed in a separate room from Larry all evening. I washed our sheets and he stayed in the guest bedroom for the night. Which by the way was so weird! When I woke up Wednesday morning, my throat was killing me and I was coughing. Both Larry and my mom suggested I go to urgent care to get tested for the flu also. I went and they didn't even test me, just said that they were going to prescribe me Tamiflu since I was in the same house as someone with the flu. Since I start stims tomorrow, I was really worried that me being on Tamiflu would push back everything. I called my doc's office and the nurse said that as long as I wasn't running fever on Thursday, then we could still start stims on Friday.
Well all day Wednesday I had a fever. I was SO worried I'd still have one Thursday. Before I went to bed Larry told me that I need to think I'm getting better, because stressing about it will just make me worse. Then, my mom called and told me the same thing. I had a horrible night of sleep. I woke up every hour and a half. Every other time I was either sweating and hot as can be or freezing cold with chills. It was awful. Luckily when I woke up I didn't feel quite as bad. I immediately took all my medicines and rested on the couch. I took my temperature and it was a low grade fever. I told myself I WILL get this fever down today. I kept resting and drinking a lot of water and in a couple of hours I was feeling so much better. I took my temp again and guess what no fever! I told Larry the good news, but told him I'd wait a couple hours and check it again before calling my doctor's office. So I waited 2 hours, checked again and still no fever! So stims are still on tomorrow!!
Larry is still feeling bad so please pray for a quick recovery for him. He's also got a minor sinus surgery next week, so that will help a lot.
