First off nurses that tells me 97.5 is a normal temp and most people have it pisses me off.
I let the nurse know last night that I Fibro and when I"m not sick my Temp. is 97.5 and that if my temp is a normal temp of 98.6 I'm sick well it was 100.0 when she took it and then she told me that wasn't too bad. Yeah for a normal person it might not have been. For us 100.0 would be 101.0 for a normal person.
Anyways, the Dr had me stay for an extra hour cause I was Dehydrated. I guess I looked really bad when he walked in the room. Cause without looking at any test other than my blood count work he said I looked tired and Dry. He did a pee test which showed blood in my pee and when he looked at my thoart my left tonsil was a little swollen. I got an IV for a hour and a great pain shot not sure what it was but it was great, LOL. The nurse gave me the pain shot in my IV and then had me go to the bathroom to pee in cup. I almost fell a couple of times while in there and then coming out. What a nurse.
The Dr had me take today off and told me to drink lots of liquids and just take it easy.  I'm on meds for the thoart and tyonal every 4 hours.
I did watch a set of twins yesterday, they are 1 year old. I've had them since they were 11 weeks old. I let them play all day and didn't worry about the mess they made, I was hoping when we came last night Mitch would have cleaned up the toys since I went to bed at 9 pm and he stayed up until I don't know when but I got up to toys still all over floor and his beer cans on Kitchen table waiting for me to clean up.
Well I hope everyone is doing well today.

What a Pr!@! Darn man. I'm sorry you have to take care of two little kids and 1 great big kid. He could spend at least an hour cleaning up. I hope you feel better on your good days.
I think I'm going to stop by my local ER hospital and see if they can't do something with my newest headache since January, 2009.

I'm so sorry you felt bad enough to go to the ER last night. That must have been lots of fun. How long did you have to wait??

I hope the one day's rest helps you, but if you are still feeling bad the following day, then take another day off. Don't push yourself. Drink lots and lots and rest. Take a nap if you can.

God's blessings and gentle hugs, my dear.

I hope you get better soon Roni. I had a nurse in an ER a few weeks ago that started measuring out loud where she should give me a shot in the behind so I told her to forget it I would go home and take pills, didn't think I wanted her sticking a needle in me if she didn't even know where to stick it. turn I told DH and son to never take me to that hos again even if I'm dying. Makes you wonder where some of these people went to school or did they.
Rest up and take care of yourself.
luv and hugs

Thank you all.

I went to Urgent care and I was taken right in. I go there cause it's cheaper than Hospital and alot quicker.

Hara, Yeah that's what I thought about him cleaning up. I did it yesterday when I started feeling a little better inbetween sleeping it took a whole 10 minutes. But that's me, it would have taken him longer.

Linda, Today Thank God I only have 3 little ones and I can sneak a nap in while they sleep today. And I have Sat. and Sunday off.

Marlee I feel alot better today than the last few days. I know about hospitals that's why I go to Urgent care. This is first time I've had this incounter with this nurse. Hopefully the last.

I hope you feel better soon. Keep us posted about what is going on.

You get strong.
Wipe your hands
