I've Got A Fever

The Only Prescription is More Cowbell!!

Have been feeling really tired, sorta thought it was just my digestive issues, but found out yesterday I was running a fever, and I'm running one today. Going to my PCP to verify that its not contagious, but I think I have been running one for several days. My boss has a handicapped son who is very succeptible to flus and I would be horrified if I passed something around at work and it got his boy sick. I really need the money from working, but I'll feel much better in my heart if I make sure I can't pass anything along before I go to work knowing I have a fever. Have taken some acetaminophin and it felt like it dropped the fever substantially.

Dr. Bellyfixer said it could just be the pancreatitis, since the pancreas sorta eats itself with digestive enzymes and then your body has to absorb the damage which can lead to fever...or it could be another UTI, or it could just be nothing. The Belly is really complaining today as it didn't like being poked on by Dr. Bellyfixer. The Headache is better since I "retuned" the occipital stimulator.

Enjoy the long and short versions of the "Cowbell Skit" from SNL. The link More_Cowbell at the bottom leads you to the official long version. Wishing cowbells could make me better, but watching Will Ferrell playing the cowbell is the next best thing.

  1. I love that Cowbell skit! SNL is so funny. I hope your not contagious, and that your fever comes down so that you feel a little bit better.

  2. Heard that song on the radio today and it made me smile. I hope you feel better - at least if you do have the flu, that means it's something that will go away. Good luck with the tummy issues!

  3. Thanks for the comments Denise, Header....hope you and your families are all doing well during this flu season!

    Have antibiotics now for a "complicated" UTI aka kidney infection, so hope to feel better soon and at least I can't spread it around work.

    I'm so old I remember when SNL started. Sigh...I definitely need more cowbell in my life!
