Colds and flu circulating

Posted , 2 users are following.

Sky @ 9 weeks here.  Be careful of the colds and flu that go around.  I think our immune systems are overloaded right now.  Last week my teeth hurt and then my ears and then I developed a low grade fever and the knee was felt warm (but so did everything else).  I was up to about 99.5 F and decided it was time to go in and that night the fever broke. I woke up soaked but cool...   Remind family and friends NOT to visit if they are not feeling good.  Wash your hands a lot especially if you're out grocery shopping or out in public places in general.  That was a bit scary.   Best wishes to all...

YUK! knee not hot thank heavens

      Yikes!  Watch your temperature and check to see how your knee feels.  Even at 9 weeks my knee feels a little bit warm especially after exercise but that seems par for me.  Hope you feel better.  Fluids!  SOUP!
