    Asked by little_fut on Monday, April 22, 2013


    hi everyone well this weekend was not as good is it should have been. I had fevers over 101 .9 degrees. After three days of putting up with flu like symptoms and fevers I finally gave in andwent to emergency room. When my throat closed up that was my last straw. Im glad i went but man they looooove to take blood...today i feel little better but still under the weather, thats ok tho...im alive and smiling.

      We have to be careful of those fevers, they can get out of control quickly. Glad your doing well now. I bet your Dr. gave you a talking to? They used to fuss at me if I waited too long before going in. Like you, I just didn't want them poking on me again.

      Wow, glad you feel better. I remember the nurses telling me over and over if your temp goes to 101.5 get in/call them right away. Now I understand! Where your blood counts ok?

      Hang in there, you are doing great, really! Sometimes when the sick side effects were becoming too much to bear I would start to think of them as some type of science fiction war fare against me and I would imagine I had super powers to combat it. It became a very helpful imagery. And most importantly I ALWAYS WON!!!!!!

      We are all glad that you are Okay. Thank you for sharing this..... it sounds like something I would do, chemo starts tomorrow; I'll be sure to keep your share in mind and get help if I need it fast.
