Rocky Mountain spotted fever

I feel about as close to a miserable death as I’ve ever been.

If not for Rob who has been vigilant in his care, and his promises to hold my hand if I have to go back to ER so they can dig around and fail to find veins again, I’m sure I would have already.

This all started about a week and a half ago. It’ll be a while before I’m back online.

If you notice anyone asking me questions here or on FB, please clue them in for me. I’ll be back as soon as I can keep my eyes open. Very light sensitive and under immense head pain and just trying to stay hydrated right now.

  1. I had RMSF in 2012 it is not fun but you will be ok . It’s really wears you out . Listen to the docs stay in bed and try and relax

    1. Thanks for the encouragement. Once this head pain passes it’ll be easier to relax but harder then to stay in bed. This morning I feel really good and think hey, I’ll go make breakfast! Then I’ll get out of bed, stand up and say hey what were you thinking!

  2. Oh wow! Ive never had it but have some close friends that have. Its a very debilitating sickness. Are they treating you at the VA? Our family will keep you in our prayers and thought. Hang in there and listen to the staff.
