Three DOCTOR's Visits So Far In The Past Ten Days
Saturday, August 16, 2014
Finally, my infection is starting to get a little better. It has been three weeks of burning fatigue, no voice, fever, coughing and wheezing. Hubby has been sick too minus the wheezing. In the last ten days, I have been seen by the doctor three times. I think changing my antibiotic and adding a steroid, along with using a nebulizer, has really helped. My next check up for my lungs is August 27th. I have just got to be better by then!
I have been able to go out for several short periods during the last two days but have to rest afterwards. The night sweats are terrible. I have done more laundry during the past few days than I have since my daughter was a baby. The good news is that we constantly have clean sheets on our bed. I go through at least two sets of pj's a night so and I have taken so many showers that I have to crank up the washing machine most days just to keep up with the laundry. I had to buy a new bottle of Lysol spray to spray down the mattresses and pillows every time I change the bed. I also spray the sinks and the air in the rooms where we've been coughing.
When this is over, I will open the doors and air out the house. Our lady comes to clean on Monday, although I have already cleaned this week. I will change the sheets on the bed again, along with all the bathroom towels. The dogs have been groomed and bathed and I washed the towels on their bed too. I have been making veggie soup like crazy and have healthy food stocked in the refrigerator. Now if the wheezing and the fatigue would just go away, I could get back to the business of healthy living!
