After a few weeks of feeling great, I have been hit with a pretty horrible head cold. Yesterday, I woke up with so much pressure in my head that I was worried it was a sign of infection from the brain surgery or the radiation procedures. I had a mild fever as well, so I went to emergency. (After both procedures, my doctors said that I should go to emergency if I had a fever, because it’s a sign of infection.) So, at 5:30am yesterday, I went to emergency. Six hours and several tests later, the doctors confirmed that I had a bad case of a sinus cold, which I guess is good news. So now I’m resting and drinking lots of fluids, blowing my nose and hoping this passes as quickly as possible. Patience. Patience. Patience.
Friends, I won’t lie, this sucks. But I suppose it’s also a reminder that people get sick sometimes with things that are not life-threatening, and that’s part of life too. And you just have to suck it up and get through it. My body has been through a lot this past year, and there is a part of me that is in awe of how it’s handling everything. It is worn down, but not broken, and it is doing it’s best to work through this horrible cold.
Take care of yourself, friends. I’ve heard that there is a bad virus is going around.
