I would very much like to thank Dr. Dain Franks at the Texas MedClinic, who I truly believe saved my life.  I encourage all of you to seek medical attention when you have symptoms that don’t make sense.  In my case, it was severe back pain, flu-like joint & muscle aches, fatigue, and fever.  I thought that I had a weird flu that didn’t involve respiratory symptoms.  I wish I had gone to the doctor sooner than I did.  If I’d waited another day or so, I might’ve had to be hospitalized.

Don’t be me.  If you have a fever over 101°F, and you’re older than 20, GO TO THE DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY!  Grown-ups don’t get fevers like that, unless they’re seriously ill.

I wish you all a long LONG healthy life full of much yarny joy!

Modern Medicine ROCKS!

I’m baaaaaack…

I meant to continue the sock posting after NaBloPoMo, but I just couldn’t find the energy.  I didn’t discover the reason until after Christmas, when (after a 103+ fever on Christmas day), I was diagnosed with a severe kidney infection, that the doctor thinks had probably been developing for months.

Thanks to the miracle of modern medicine, I am fully recovered!  All systems are go!  This means that, starting tomorrow, we’ll continue our sock series with the first HEEL post!  Aren’t you excited?
