I left work before completing everything I had to do that night, but it would just have to do. At that point, I just didn’t care. My body has had enough. I was so tired and running out of breath so easily.
I went home to take a nap for a few hours waiting to call my doctor as I promised Randy I would do so.
After my little nap, I talked to the receptionist trying to make an appointment. Because I was showing signs of Covid-19 I would have to do a video appointment. I wasn’t happy, it’s been 10 days. I need to see a doctor. I needed tests, not a video chat.
Instead, I decided to go to the CVS Minute Clinic. I signed in and I was able to see the nurse practitioner right away. She tested me for Covid first thing which came up negative. Thank goodness for that.
After the examination, she felt I had a really bad case of the flu. She wanted me to make an appointment with my doctor to follow up. She said I will need bloodwork, urine, and possibly a stool sample which she can’t run at CVS. She wrote me off work for three nights to rest up and hopefully give the doctors time to see me.
I was feeling confident she was right about the flu and I probably have some bacteria issue in the gut which may need an antibiotic. I was on the road to recovery at least I thought.
When I got home I contacted work to let them know I was sick and I wouldn’t be in for a few days.
I was so ready to climb in bed for some much-needed sleep.
I spent the entire day sleeping other than getting up to go pee once in a while. Rest will do me good!
