Fine by Sunday

I finished my course of chloroquine on Tuesday. I was feeling better while I was taking it, but by Wednesday I had a killer headache again. Thursday my head still really hurt, I had a fever and vomited the ibuprofen I tried to take, so I went to the hospital and they threw an IV in my arm for no good reason. They took blood, and the nurse who was working on me talked to a doctor over the phone who prescribed me pain medicine for my headache. The pain killers are awesome and totally work. And I saw a real doctor in person today. He says I have a virus that will be gone by Sunday.
In other news, Alexis starts work on Monday!

So glad that the pain killers work (but don't get too used to the feeling, okay?) and that they diagnosed this thing. Give it plenty of rest, even when you're feeling better. Wonderful news about Lexi's job.
