This will be short. If reading about bodily fluids grosses you out. Come back some other time. I will just be updating this post with my progress for awhile.
WHOOPeeing Cough or Peemonia. Earlier I had the flu and had recovered quite nicely until I began to get a temperature that would last about twelve hours. Then I got the cough..the one that makes you vomit and pee at the same time..messy. You young gals won't get this peeing side effect til after you are fifty. Then the peeing got less and less, and I was coughing my gutts out, and vomiting up everything that was going in, and the peeing my pants stopped..I guess I was severely dehydrated. Far Guy hauls my butt out of the house when it is twenty five below zero and took me to the Clinic. To Be Continued...
At the Clinic.. I got two huge bags of IV fluids, bloodwork, Xrays and a Nasio-Pharyngeal swab that was a super dooper rooter router that gets spiraled up your nose and down your throat..going only where snot has been before. My left nostril will never be the same. It felt very alien and I tried my best to pant like a puppy like the Doc said. I was at the clinic five hours..it was exhausting. Our daughter had unconfirmed Whooping Cough..but our Granddaughters case was confirmed. My test will not be back for five or six days. Far Guy and I both got medication for Whooping Cough. It is a really bad bug, one of the worst I have ever encountered. Minnesota Dept of Health wants to keep it contained. As for me the bad bug is still winning...temperature, body aches and coughing. To be continued..
Friday, I turned the corner at 5AM when it was 33 degrees below zero out, I ate an orange and drank a bottle of water..I am finally able to sleep more than thirty seconds at a time. I have been asleep all day, all I do is sleep and drink water. Far Guy has learned how to make jello and brew a cup of tea! As long as I can sleep I think I am on the winning side. To Be continued..
Saturday, I am still sleeping. I feel like I could sleep for a week or two. Weak as a newborn kitten..but Chance and Far Guy are taking good care of me. Thank you for all the get well wishes! :)
