Well, this has not been fun.
I've had three rounds of fevers now, hitting 102 plus and you know what, it's tiring.
Last night I was able to actually lie down, which felt great. I only slept a few hours though before I woke and something was just "wrong". I had the worst headache of my life, was nauseous and just felt "wrong". It was kinda scary. J. sat up with me for about an hour on the couch while I forced myself to drink water . . . I suspect dehydration was a big part of this. I then slept off and on the rest of the night. Today, I just feel exhausted. I get to take a shower, which I know will feel wonderful. I HAVE to work tomorrow--this is my last day off, so I need to feel better faster, damn it!
My bandage is coming off today so I can wow my children with my incision and stitches. :) I am sure they will be thoroughly impressed.
So, keep sending good thoughts. I really need to get through this and it is taking far more from me than I had anticipated. Gee, maybe I"m getting older than I thought. . .

Sending you lots of positive thoughts across the ether and air waves.

Are you keeping in touch with your doctor? The fevers aren't generally good after surgery. I am concerned. Will definitely be praying for you. Hope that you get a good night's sleep tonight.

thanks for worrying, my friends. Yes, I have been in contact with the doctor. Apparently fevers are not that unusual after surgery. Since there aren't any indications of infection at the incision site, all is well.
