Wednesday 2/18/08

By late yesterday, Jessica was getting body aches. In the middle of the night, I got a text from her saying "my body aches all over." I couldn't even rub her back, because it hurt to the touch.

Jessica woke up saying - "still really tired, my body is hurting all over, and my throat hurts..." She would barely even talk to me this morning - That's how bad she felt. When I asked her if she was the same as yesterday, she said maybe worse because of her body aches. Her tiredness was better, but her achiness was worse. She was worn out, but couldn't sleep. She didn't get out of bed at all until 1:00. I gave her ibuprofen and she ate lunch, and then she seemed to perk up some. It was a beautiful day today - sunny and 70 degrees - so she managed to move to the backyard to soak up the sun. We sat on the trampoline and we worked together on the many history questions to prepare for tomorrow's test. After a few questions, Jessica laid on the trampoline and rested or napped for a while. Tonight, we've managed to finish the study questions and she's ready for the (open note) test.

She's still sore, but doing quite a bit better. It's good to see her smile again!

I'm so sorry to hear she's feeling bad. Hope things improve soon. Tell her there are even strangers out there who are wishing her better soon! ;)

Sore throats and aches? Sounds like a viral trigger to me. At least that's what happens to me when I'm exposed to a virus - maybe whatever Steve had last weekend has triggered her CFS. I hope it was short-lived and she's feeling better by now?

P.S. 70's and sunny??? Are you kidding? We had a wind chill in the teens today!

Isn't the sun therapeutic? I feel so much better when I'm in the sun. We've had a couple of days here in PA when the temp was high 60's which is amazing for winter. Winter is a tough time to have CFS!!!

Hope Jessica is doing better..

I guess it was a viral trigger. It was short lived - still achey Thursday but back at school.

And, yes, the sun was wonderful and welcomed!!

Thank you all for your thoughts!
