Still feverish

It’s really strange. I have a fever (and accompanying chills) but no aches, no stuffed up nose or head, and only a slight cough. I just took some more Advil (no NyQuil) during the day and hopefully this thing will run it’s course before the day is over.

I was up close to 7 AM after getting nearly 12 hours of sleep last night. I headed over to IHOP for breakfast and now that I’m back, I’ve got a list of things to do before heading to the airport, starting with Zeke’s vet appointment in about 25 minutes. He’s sitting on my lap right now, purring away, completely innocent of the fact that I’m getting his carrier out in about five minutes and that we’re heading off to the vet. He hates that. I’ve got to gas up the car, do some laundry, clean up the kitchen, get a haircut, go to the gym (if I feel up to it), call the accountant, print out my boarding passes, etc. etc. It’s a busy day off.
