not so hot

Hi all...

Not doing so hot right now. 
Had to go to emerg yesterday at 6am due to a high fever (100.4 degrees), sore throat and swollen glands (and some swelling and tenderness in the gums around a wisdom tooth that is coming in.
We called the caner clinic in London at 4am to tell them, and they said to go to emerg.
I went, and the first doctor told me that i had a virus. Ugh.
However, when the blood and urine reports came back, it turns out that I have and infection. Possibly of the wisdom tooth... maybe strep throat. I don't know. Anyway, I was put on antibiotics and told to go home.

Anyway, today my temp is 101.4. I am so weak i can barely walk around and my body aches so bad I can't stay still for long periods of time.
My mom called the cancer clinic again, and they said I have to go and have IV antibiotic and maybe be hospitalized overnight.
Anyway... I will try to update when I get home from the hospital.

sorry you're not feeling well. :( from my natural health-care and pathology courses, what I know about fevers is they are the body's natural response to fight off infection. a high fever is especially good for that (and a sign of a healthy immune system), even though it sucks... I wouldn't worry about it too much. I hope you feel better soon. thinking of ya.
