October, 12, 2014

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.


  1. "I was resting, though very hot to the touch" - and I KNOW you want to be hot to the touch, but in a different way! :)

    hope that made you smile; love you, dear!

  2. Dear Cajun, I'm so sorry you are sick in the hospital. The spike in the fever certainly is not good. Wish I could provide some comfort to you. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Thank you for posting and keeping us updated. Susan

  3. Thank you for the update. I'm sorry you are having such a hard time. I'm thinking of you and hope so much that you will start feeling better, please keep fighting to get back to feeling good again.


  4. Well, you managed to make Fearsome laugh. Sorry it's not good Cajun, glad you got a post in. We are all thinking about you often ( I am taking the liberty of speaking for others but I think they will be ok with that cause they are as am I). Fearsome scares me in The mirror quite often. He's never been this big and I'm gonna let him keep growing for awhile.

  5. I hope my comments are going through; I fear they are not. I too am saddened by the news.
