Yesterday morning I was in my Bible study class and thought the church had cranked up the air conditioner because I was freezing. But then I realized when I got into my warm car afterwards, I was still cold. I'd woken up with a bit of a cough and some congestion, and when I got home and took my temperature, I had a low fever. Just enough to make me feel terrible, but not too high so that I couldn't function. Lucas took his afternoon nap and I took one too, but woke up feeling worse. By evening, I was a mess....102 fever, chills, body aches, and a throat that felt like it was on fire. I've had my fair share of strep throat, and I just assumed I'd be making a trip to the doctor's office today. Mike gave me some ibuprofen, tucked me into bed, and took care of the kids. I think I slept for 11 hours straight, and thankfully woke up fever free today! And my throat is not on fire anymore. So I've just been home resting today, letting Lucas watch more cartoons than usual so I can sip hot tea and try to get better quickly. I'm still coughing, so I'm thinking it is just a cold and will pass in time.
Anyway, just wanted you to know why I didn't blog last night. Hopefully I'll be as good as new tomorrow! It's Mike's birthday, and I have some special things planned!
