What a glorious feeling to wake and realize I had slept 8 hours. While my wife was still as miserable as I had been for days, I suddenly had less pain, Temps dropped to 98s until finally back in the 99s with the typical viral evening worsening.
I woke to my primary care physician calling me to let me know I had a test set for 10 am. Right off, the choking cough and the overall body pain were steadily worse, and my Temp ranged 101.6 to 102.5 through the day.
It’s not very often a story or situation hits so close to home for me. The fire at the Knights of Columbus hall in Bryan, and the tragic loss of two firefighters, strikes at my core. My father is a firefighter.
