Yesterday I resorted to ice under the arms plus Tylenol to decrease my temperature when it rose over 103 degrees. It happened so fast. Most of the afternoon it ranged from 99.5 to 100.xx. Suddenly I could feel the difference and knew that if I did not decrease it, we would be going to the emergency room. Ugh. Thank goodness the ice and Tylenol worked. When I called the on-call doctor, he said I should just keep doing what I was doing and that my body should fight off whatever it is. We decided against an antibiotic because I do not have specific symptoms. Just the fever and some urgency to urinate. I am taking cranberry pills just in case.
So it is another day of R and R.
