What I SHOULD do is get the proud new farm owner's credit card info for you and have you start buying some of things we're going to need in a month....oh well....I pretty much sleep when I'm sick, so I have nothing for you. Sorry you're sick.
I try to find various farm sites to poke around, drool over the horses, gorgeous barns. Look at some eventers blogs and then can't believe I'm a chicken to jump over 2'3"! I tend to bookmark various sites for just those occassions
Not sure what we're calling it, I've heard it as "The Ick" and "The Crud"
Fever started Friday am at 5 with 99.2 and hasn't gone away since. Nor has it gotten that low since.
Sinus infection and possible strep is what dr said at visit Friday around 11. Gave me z pack and told to take 2 motrin every 6 hours.
By Friday pm around 8 I was in lots of pain. Called on call dr got his permission to knock the motrin off and switch to vicodin for the pain and fever reducing (There is tylenol in Vicodin)
Saturday temps rose to a high of 101.8 Saturday night bonus of yakking up blood.
Sunday we spoke to dr on call again, switched to straight Tylenol ex strength, 2 every 6 hours. Temps actually got as low as 99.4. But went up last night to 100.5
This am woke up with 99.5
If temp doesn't break to normal today have to go to a urgent care and get checked out again.
Meanwhile my throat is searing with pain when I swallow and both ears have been ouchy. The phlegm of the sinus infection is just starting to loosen now. So its highly gross here. Oh and I have no voice!! I can't even talk, which most who know me, know thats my main go to skill in life!!
Thanks for all the great suggestions. I am working my way through Badmitton, BFNE how could I not love that video!!!! And yea no, I won't be hocking up stuff all over Jimmy, give him my best though. The sale ads are a little scary with what pics people think is a good representation for their sale horses priced over $10k.
Still trying to get an appetite so I am sleeping a lot without it, hence I am good to look at stuff thats interesting for about 45 mins, then I go back to sleep.
You guys are the best, thanks again for all the advice.

Well I am having heat exhaustion, you cannot imagine how excited I am to report I did not suffer through Waredaca on Memorial Day weekend for the first time in about five years...it is warm out and horsies are in barn cooling under fans and I'm running in and out doing absolutely nothing, which is pretty unproductive. We are conserving our energy, which is a nice way of saying I'm being utterly and completely LAZY until about 6pm when I will go back to work outside. Blech. Me and heat do not get along.
