Mid Friday afternoon I suddenly became very cold and began to shake such that it actually became very difficult to sign cheques and letters. I quickly exited the office and came straight home and went to bed. I don't think that I've ever felt colder and I don't think I've ever had a higher fever.
I basically stayed in bed for two days. When I did get up, my balance was gone so I fell several times. The kids showed up at my door to express sympathy, but stayed well away from me. Pam came in several times to check up on me. At one time I thought I saw an insurance form.
She did stay in the room long enough for me to explain the severe discomfort I was experiencing. I've often thought that women don't appreciate the significance of a Man cold and how it causes greater pain and discomfort than even childbirth.
Pam did relieve herself of the inconvenience of listening to me complain today by heading off fishing this morning at the Chahallis River. Perhaps it was with the belief that nature would do it's nasty little job while she wasn't in the house but when she does return from fishing, she will find that I'm still alive, and partly recovered.
It has been a long time since I have spent two days in bed or for that matter two days in the house without leaving . I had no idea that the kids spent so much time in their rooms on their screens. Which is, come to think of it, exactly what I did for the two days when I wasn't sleeping.
Sometimes I wonder if when we completely destroy nature, we will even notice since we spend all our time in our rooms on our screens.
In any event, if there's one lesson for me to take from this it is that I should be grateful I am sick so seldom. I don't do sickness well. Oh, and I'm sure my family is grateful as well that I am sick so seldom.
