Last night was pretty rough. Out of nowhere I got what I will call a flash fever. I was shivering for a while and had a temperature of 102. I was covered in sweat. 3 hours later the fever had come down quite a bit and I was feeling much better. The nursing staff here is phenomenal and they were all over me while I was sick. I also developed a headache and had trouble sleeping.
Other than that I have been noticing daily changes in my strength level and seem to be able to do more with my legs each day. Tomorrow morning they will transition me off of the magic elixir (Bupivacaine) and on to oral pain meds so I can get out of bed. I am really looking forward to it.
