Waiting for CT scan results, several cultures, etc. I’ve never had an illness with so many ups and downs before: This morning at 4 am my temp was 103 with shortness of breath and I was pretty certain I’d be heading for the ER after we sent Lucas off to school. At 7 am it was down to 99 and I felt pretty good–and still do, for the moment. I scrambled some eggs for myself and did some dishes. It’s so peculiar.

Dad’s on a plane flying to Hawaii right now with my gran and grand-aunt and a bunch of family members. Last night he was here grilling me about my temp, and he called again this morning to find out what it was. I was happy to tell him normal and 99, and not 103. He was considering staying home because I’m sick.

OB/gyn appt on Monday; Ultrasound on Tuesday. Hopefully in the next couple of days we’ll know what’s going on with me. Hopefully the new drugs will do the work of knocking out the infection in the meantime.

    I’m so sorry you’re going through all this. Thank you for the updates, I know it’s got to be an effort to do this when you’re busy just trying to hold it together until they figure out what to fix! I wish I could help in some way, but can’t do much from here but send my love and good vibes. Lots of both.

    That sucks hope you get better soon. Are you taking antibiotics or something now? I developed an allergic reaction to an antibiotic cuz I had taken it a few too many times before and some of my symptoms after taking the antibiotic was a high fever around 103, shortness of breath, cough, chills, and fever…
