RV Weekend Trip Cancelled

We didn’t post about it because it was just going to be Saturday and Sunday to de-winterize the rig and make sure everything is ok. Monday woke up not feeling to well, went to work and tried to shake it off, on Tuesday was worse, went to work anyway and on Wednesday woke up at 102f and that’s all she wrote, stuck in bed from Wednesday until today.

Fever finally down to 99, still feel like some small person with a mean disposition has huge vice grips (I have a big melon) around my head and is joyfully putting the squeeze on. So we decided while fresh air would probably do us some good Ronda is now down with this bug. Ronda, she is bug resistant, she just plain doesn’t get sick so you know this thing is a nasty one.

I have been sick each month of this year. Disappointed smile  My doctor sent me to an Oncologist/Hematologist to try and find out why my immune system is so weak. My lymphocyte counts were low and have been getting lower over time. The specialist couldn’t come up with an answer. I have been taking supplements to try and get a boost but clearly it’s not working. I’m trying to get an appointment with my Doc later today to ask her for something stronger to help and to get something to contain this migraine that’s on its 4th straight day.

We’ll get the rig out there sooner or later though! Oh, a bit of possible good news! Ronda may have found somebody who can handle to flooring in the rig, either carpet or laminate, I’m calling him tomorrow to hear what he says, crossing fingers and toes…

Sorry to hear you guys are not feeling well. Hope that changes soon! We still need to de-winterize but I'm still not sure about another 32 degree night.

Nasty bug you both have come down with. I hope you and Ronda get to feeling better soon.

Good luck with the flooring Erik. And I'm so sorry that you got sick again, but you know Erik, there are just so many nasty bugs out there anymore. Jake and I are constantly using those wipes on the shopping carts and washing our hands.Jake especially because all he ever uses is public bathrooms which I avoid at all costs!!
Anyway, sorry about your trip but at least it's only April. Get better soon. Love Di ♥

Erik, you may want to take a good look at any documented side effects of any and all medicines you're on now, as some of them may have immune system represent capabilities.

Big Matt - Been tested from here to Sunday and unfortunately the side effect list of the meds I'm on are long and ugly but lower immune system isn't one of them.

Being diabetic doesn't help but I definately do have system issues.
