A beautiful, but rainy Sunday turned as the sun went down. Fever set in. Chills brought shiver. Mucus color changed. Pneumonia struck suddenly.
Texts, private messages and phone calls followed. Dad and Susie came back in town to be with me until my nurse, Tabitha, could arrive.
My temperature rose from 100.6 to 103.9. To combat the fever, Tabitha had me take 600 milligrams of ibuprofen. It was determined I needed an antibiotic.
When I rose today, my hair was wet. Overnight the fever broke.
Tabitha returned this morning with Levaquin in a 750 milligrams dosage to take for seven days. She also brought me a case of strawberry Boost.
Mom and Bill returned this morning to complete the cleaning job on my apartment. My great-nephew, Chevy, came along as well.
Today is turning out better than last night.
While Mom and Bill were here, Joe with Guardian arrived to setup and activate my home and button emergency alarm and fall detector. Now help is a push away. This is definitely a blessing with Iohn gone, leaving me without a caregiver.
That’s the way it is in Mark’s Den.
And how is your Monday going?
