My idea to take Tyke for a walk Sunday afternoon, turned out not to be such a very good one. That very same night and the next morning I was shivering and trembling like a leave because i could not get warm enough. I found out later, that this is when I am actually running a fever and I have learned to keep the thermostat of the heater turned up very high.
Anyway, I felt pretty miserable and incapable of doing anything, so I thought the best thing to do would be to call the doctor's office and make an appointment. With a lot of effort I got dressed and made it over there.
I told the doctor that I was so very cold all the time but he took my temperature and it showed that I was running a high fever, He listened to my lungs and said that I was on the verge of having a pneumonia. He was quite concerned and wrote a prescription for a broad spectrum antibiotic and ordered bed rest for a week. I have to see him again next week Monday.
I keep the heater turned up high and also sit in my chair very warmly dressed under a blanket. I do not take ibuprofen any longer but paracetamol for the fever.
I am worn out now and have to stop writing.
