Platelets were low so they ordered a 6-pak for this morning. All went well at first. Now the Fever has returned at 101.4 and I felt it coming. Truly bizarre. Nurses raced for the Tylenol and Demerol push.
Within 10 minutes I was resting, though very hot to the touch. Burning eyes and a splitting headache. Very depressing since I’ve been doing so well of late.
No internal bleeding from the side effect scare yesterday, so that’s a good thing.
I just noticed that there are 2 bath tissue dispensers in my bathroom. One feeds over the top, while the other feeds from underneath. I guess they try to keep everyone satisfied, whatever your preference. At least that’s my theory.
Before the fever struck today I was able to clean up a bit and trim around my beard. Unfortunately, I have no trimmer on hand, so I’m beginning to look like Fearsome Beard, though I don’t think it looks as good on me as it does on him. It makes me chuckle whenever I pass the mirror.
Of course I usually chuckle when I see myself in the mirror these days, anyway. I look and feel like a different person. I don’t know how to explain it, exactly, but it’s a kind of release, and relief to see how I look physically, these days.
Tired and drained at times, but none the worse for wear at others. If you get my drift.
Don't know when I will rite again. Life is not good at all right now.
