I can't believe this. My hubby has been sick, running a high fever and just generally not doing well. He has been hitting the garlic hard trying to knock it out before I catch it. Well, I have a fever, sore throat, cough, something moving in my chest, feel more run down, etc... AND Alexander has a low grade fever. Lovely timing. He is fussy and generally unhappy. He has a mild cough as well. His doctor said tylonol and call tomorrow and see how we progress from there. My rheumy said she is calling in levaquin for me to have on hand and if I run a high fever or see signs of bacterial infection that I must begin them right away. I am also not to go to the dentist tomorrow. I really wanted my cleaning and x-rays over with. We have to figure out if Eddie needs antibiotics himself cause he is not getting better. Anyone know how long you give a virus to improve before you start thinking bacterial infection?
I am unhappy about this, I really wanted to avoid getting sick. I shouldhave made him sleep elsewhere but darn it all I get cold when he isn't in the bed. Besides which I figured sleeping in the bed might help him get better faster.
