We had a great day yesterday. We bought our annual flower supplies (intending to plant later today) and then scored a a dip in the hot tub and a nice meal at Mom and George's place in Orleans. All was well. After a few glasses of wine, I was feeling a bit sleepy, but otherwise healthy.
We got home a little after 9pm, put away some groceries, and brought in the flowers. Then all of a sudden I got insanely tired and a started to get a chill. within 20 minutes I was in bed, but within that time I had started shivering from the chill. It felt like a fever. Of course, our battery-operated thermometer is dead, so I couldn't double check, but I know what a fever feels like. I took a couple of Tylenol to help bring it down and tried to catch some sleep.
I couldn't get warm for about 2 hours – then, when the Tylenol did kick in, I couldn't get cooled down. It wasn't a pleasant night. And yet I have no sore throat, no stuffy nose, no sore stomach. So what is this? I was worried it was the flu, but I have no other symptoms. This morning I feel alright – a bit tired from staying in bed too long, but otherwise fine.
We'll see if the fever comes back tonight. I hope not.
