I got a fever of a hundred and one.
Antibiotics; losing my hair,
I'm hot blooded, I'm hot blooded.
Day +9 is serious nadir-ville. Fever spiked last night -- first fever of 2011. My head felt hot and my legs were cold. Like the mouth issues, fevers are very common given the state of my immune system. Chest xray was negative; blood cultures still out.
One little trick is to put an ice pack on your neck. So if you're on your side, you put your head on the pillow and there's a natural space for the ice pack between your neck and the bed. Cools your blood a bit.
Appetite is reduced, and mouth still hurts so I'm using the viscous lidocaine early and often. Also just took 5mg of oxy. I really try to stay away from pain meds, but I need a day to just relax and feel better.
Another day of golf, baseball, and naps for me.

Oh and WTF is up with Pia getting voted off? She's 10x better than that twit, Stefano. Weak.
