It's not consumption! Or at least, the doctor doesn't think so. Though I was a tad worried when the little chunk I coughed up this morning had some blood in it, I had an amusing vision of myself reclining on a récamier, wearing a white muslin dress and coughing delicately into a lace handkerchief.

Anyway, he gave me some [stronger than last time] antibiotics and a bunch of other pills to stop the cough, the inflamation, and also the sputum. Here's hoping they work! I'm kind of tired of the coughing, especially now that I feel like my lungs are raw. It's really a lung cough, not a throat one.

All this sort of pales when compared to last night's fever, which though I have no thermometer to measure such things, can't have been much else; my forehead was burning to the touch, but I was shivering and it took two blankets and a sheet to warm me up. It passed eventually, though it came back a bit during the day. I took my temperature at work, and the thermometer said 36.4 -- I suppose that means a horrible fever, since that thermometer has never given me a reading higher than 36 even.

Off to bed now. I'll try not to cough up anymore blood! ^_^v

Please don't expire!! I hope you feel better. ♥ Could be pneumonia, or something like that, so it's good that you've got some antibiotics.

I do feel better, thanks. :)

The doctor said it was an upper respiratory track infection, so not deep enough to be bronchitis or pneumonia.

Sorry I haven't kept up. Things have been crazy. I have also been down a lot lately as described in these entries:

I'm glad you had a relaxing weekend. Sorry you're sick. I'm glad it's not TB or consumption. I hope it's not malaria. I wish I could give you an acupuncture treatment.

Aw, I hope you get some time to relax soon.

I'm feeling better now, thanks. I've never had an acupuncture treatment, but for some reason, I think it would tickle! I'm very ticklish. ^_^

Yes, I double-teamed you with hot kitty action.

(Honestly... I didn't notice that the icon I chose involved kitty ears and paws... I am not sure what that says about me)

Sunday is yours!!!
