A funny thing happened on the way to Christmas, I ended up in the hospital. It turns out that I have a major blood infection and my fever went up to 103 on Thursday night. They took some blood samples, cooled me down with Tylenol and intravenous fluids and let me go home. At 7 the next morning, they called to say that my blood was growing a culture and I should come back in, “The sooner the better.”
So here I am, getting antibiotics three or four times a day, intravenously. Much better than any alternative I can think of.
