Back Among the Living

Thursday, August 14, 2014

A week ago, I suddenly started running a fever, had a terrible headache, and ached in every joint.
I thought, "Uh Oh, I've got the flu." So I did what you're supposed to do for flu. I drank lots of liquids, took ibuprofen for the fever and headache and went to bed and slept for almost two days. When I finally felt like getting out of bed, I discovered I had lost my appetite, so lived on soup for the next two days. Finally, I got tired of feeling absolutely worthless and my husband took me to the doctor, who diagnosed bronchitis, gave me a shot in the hip, a prescription for a powerful antibiotic and told me to get plenty of rest. What a difference a day makes! By the next day my fever was gone, I was feeling much better and today I actually went to Jazzercise for the first time in a week. Thanks be to God for a healthy body that bounces back and responds to the right treatment. There's absolutely nothing that makes you appreciate health, energy and a good appetite more than losing all three for a while. It's almost like awaking from the dead and I'm so glad to be alive!
