In Sickness and in...

I started getting hot flashes late in the afternoon, followed by a twinge in my stomach after supper. By the time the kids were in bed, after a healthy dose of WWE Monday Night Raw, I figured out that I was coming down with something.

As I pulled back the sheets and crawled into bed I was shivering as the fever began to take hold. As is the case each time I run a temperature during sleep, I hallucinated throughout the night, images of WWE running through my mind, of Batista and Sheamus, of huge crowds and David Hasselhoff--he was the guest host this week. What a nightmare!

I crawled out of my bed at the usual time, just after 6 am, hopped on my handy dandy Shoppers Drug Mart weight scale. My weight reading was one of the lowest since I began the Middle Age Bulge blog on December 26 while my body fat percentage was one of the highest. I'm not certain how that happens, but it's something to work on.

Outside of two 30 minute breaks, I slept through the entire day, immovable and weak. Heather says she still loves me, even though I'm sick. That's a blessing because I've been pretty useless today.
