The rest of my day was pretty yucky. I went to bed not feeling so well, and woke up with a pretty swollen lymph note and a sore throat. It was pretty slow going, my body just hurt so bad. Reminded of the day I was pretty sick in Rapid City, my body just screaming at me to stop, but I got 22 miles in before Brett came and picked me up. He is a good friend of Jessica, the woman I stayed with Chamberlain. He is just as awesome, warm and welcoming as Jessica is.
I took a super hot bath trying to relax my angry body, and then relaxed the rest of the night.
Bad sick day. Stayed at Brett's house and sat on the couch drinking tea and watching TV. Went to the doctor and she did some blood work and a strep test. Strep back negative and my white blood cell count was high, but it didn't show one way or the other if it was viral or bacterial. They also were going to send in my blood to check for West Nile. Should get that back in a few days.
Thank you Brett for taking care of me while I was sick!
