Hey folks. I got up this morning in another pool of sweat. I'm running a fever around 103 degrees and having trouble breathing. I headed to AIDS Healthcare Foundation where my new doctor is located. My previous physician left Jacksonville on short notice a couple of months ago. The new doctor was personable and worried about my lungs. I've had pneumonia several times since I tested HIV+ and my t-cells aren't doing so great right now so he ordered a chest x-ray which showed fluid and scarring.
Unfortunately, I still had a Board of Directors meeting to get through at 1pm at NFAN. So I dragged myself there and only half of our board of directors showed up... two are at a convention in Atlanta but since they missed the last one also it really didn't matter. Unfortunately, they also forgot to take their AIDS bears and business cards with them.
Then I came home and collapsed at some point. Woke up on the floor with a bloody scar on my forehead... nice touch for the holidays if I say so myself... NOT!
I had to get up to take my meds so I'm typing this quickly before heading back to bed. We have the First Coast Chorus this weekend and I need to get as much rest as I can.
Hope that all of you are having a better week than me.
Big bear hug,
