Just a v brief note to tell anyone who might worry or otherwise need to know or be waiting for something from me or whatever that I am laid up with a very sore throat and a stubborn fever that have kept me from thinking, sleeping, or eating well since sometime Friday.

  4. Ty ty. There’ll be a post on just that subject in a few minutes if all goes well. :)

  5. Is it swine flu?

  6. The doctor at the ER thought it didn’t look like any sort of influenza, swinish or otherwise. But he wasn’t sure. Doctors are always like that: not sure. They did a Strep test and it was negative, but the test is wrong sometimes, so it could have been Strep. Or some other bacterial pathogen. Or it could have been a virus. Not sure. So they gave me antibiotics just in case. And a litre of IV fluids ’cause I was dehydrated from the fever. And some IV anti-pain stuff ’cause I felt so lousy. And suggested alternating ibuprofen and acetaminophen since neither seemed to be bringing the fever down by itself. Not sure why. Fortunately the combination seemed to work. Or I just got better. :)
