Now that is perhaps a bit of an overstatement, but that is how it feels. It seems that I am doing another post that we normally do not do, namely anything about our health. Again, no particular reason, It just worked out that way.
The last few days with our grandson Aleister, I started to feel not so good, and soon Anneke and Aleister’s mom, as well. The boy had gotten all of us. He was out of Pre-K for awhile with a really bad cold/flu.
We cut short our final visit, as I was not feeling well. The next day, Sunday, was our departure day. Anneke and I were taking the usual over the counter stuff to keep this crud at bay. Oh yes, we had to remember to change the clock. I did not get a lot of sleep and we did not adjust to the time change well. We were off our bio-rhythms, if you believe in such things. It was a long four hours to get to our overnight stop south of Montgomery, AL. To add insult to injury, we had another hour added to the day. All evening we kept saying, is it really only this or that time. Since we did not feel that hot, we were in bed at nine-unheard off. So, of course, I was done sleeping by 4AM.
Today we had an uneventful journey to the Gulf Shores State Park, AL. I was dragging and looking forward to a quick set up and some rest-right! We were instructed to drive around the five hundred sites to pick the one we wanted-really? Anneke does not let such a challenge go unmet. After a long and for me painful search, we did end up with a pretty nice waterfront site. This was much to the chagrin of the two folks behind her at the registration office, since they both wanted the same site.
I quickly set up thinking about sitting out by the water. Somewhere in here, we heard from Aleister’s mom that she had to go to an urgent care because of a fever and sinus infection. This does not bode well for us. Anneke had spotted a fish market on our way in and so off we go for fresh fish for dinner. I was definitely not improving. Upon return I checked my temperature-yep, I too, now had a 101 temp.
As I write this, I am drinking lots of water and hoping that I do not need to find an urgent care by morning. I cannot remember the last time I had a fever, it has been years.
There are no pictures to go with this since pictures of my red face are not that pleasing and I have taken no others for several days-also very unusual.
