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
