Sick House

This has been an interesting week! 

On Sunday, Andy and I took the boat out for the first time on Kincaid Lake. We haven’t perfected the whole thing yet and there were some definite ungraceful moments, but we figured it out. I ended up having to push the boat off in to the water and got my feet and lower legs soaked. It was pretty cool out and really windy so I stayed cold the whole time. Andy didn’t catch any fish, but we had a good time on the lake anyway.  

Well on Monday morning I woke up SICK. I felt like someone was putting all their weight on my chest. I checked my temperature and it was 101 that morning. Throughout the day it kept getting worse, so I called and got into the doctor. By the time I got there my temp was up to almost 103. They ran all kinds of tests and determined that it wasn’t the flu or anything so thought it was mono. My temperature ended up getting to 104.2 on Monday and I was delirious from the fever. I have never felt like that ever before, it was awful. The mono test came back negative and I got some chest xrays and have a bad infection in my chest. 

On Tuesday Andy started feeling bad and by that night he was running a high fever as well. He called in sick on Wednesday (for the first time ever) and went to the doctor. They said the same thing to him about it being an infection and gave him some meds and a shot. Wednesday night was really rough for us- Andy’s fever got to 103.8, and I was FREAKING OUT. Around midnight I almost took him to the emergency room but thankfully his fever went down.

Today both of our fevers are down to the 99’s, thank goodness! We’ve had a very rough week here! Both of us have been so pitiful. This is the first time we’ve been this sick, and sick together, since we’ve been married. We’re still not 100%, but its so much better. I have absolutely no voice at all so if you’ve tried calling me and I haven’t answered, that is why! 

Hopefully tomorrow we’ll feel even better and be able to actually get out of the house this weekend, even if its just going to the movie or something! Andy’s going to go back to work so I’m hoping to be able to catch up on some cleaning.
