You give me fever 

I woke up this morning at 2:30 am and felt feverish. I took my Temp and it was 100.8. This is worrisome, as it may indicate I have an infection. I’ve been trying to keep my Temp down with NSAIDs, popsicles and drinking lots of cold water. I’ve been checking my Temp every couple of hours. This is how it’s fluctuated throughout the day.
02:30 am 100.8 

07:00 am 99.1

10:00 am 98.4

12:00 pm 98.2

1:30 pm 100.1

3:00 pm 101

3:30 pm 100.3

4:15 pm 98.3

6:00 pm 99.5

I’m on antibiotics so there’s not much else I can do. It’s the weekend so I can’t call my doctor, and I know she’ll be in surgery all day Monday (which is why my appointment to have the catheter removed isn’t until Tuesday morning.) I know if it stays at 101 or higher, I’d need to go somewhere (ER or On-Call Clinic) so I’m hoping if I just keep my temperature down through Tuesday morning, all will be well. 

2 more days. I’m already picking out my celebrating outfit!

    I hope you know I have been singing that song all day! Just keep an eye on the fever and please if it spikes get thee to the er. Yes you are on antibiotics but you may need stronger ones. Believe it or not our bodies don’t really like having tubes shoved where they don’t belong and you have had it for the max amount of time. So fever goes…I know I know its the mom and hospital employee in me 😉

    Hopefully your fever levels off to normal and your celebration outfit better have a cape or magic catheter balloon, er I mean rope, attached to it. 🙂

    These things always seems to happen on weekends or holidays when doctors are unavailable. Hope it clears up soon!
