Corey Equals Feeling Crappy


So even though the cartoon I thought was pretty funny, my worry for Corey is not. Last week he got a really bad flu and he went to the Dr. and they gave him a bunch of meds. He never really felt 100 percent and then Monday his fever came back and he hasn't been able to eat or drink in two days. He has already missed too much work, so he drags himself out of bed in the morning and goes to work to come home and plop on the couch. He has no energy and can hardly move. He is already on antibiotics so we know it is not a bacterial infection. Viral, probably, but how long will this last? I worry about how pale he looks all the time and he is going to bed around 9pm which is so early for him. I just want him better, and he refuses to go back to the Dr. again. Lets hope that his body can kick this. Although my mom seems to think it is stress related....but how do you get rid of all the stresses of life?

I hope he is feeling better. We will keep him in our prayers. We love you!

It's probably not stress if he has a fever. If he's not better he could have C. Dificle (Clostridia Dificil) which is a colon infection caused by taking antibiotics. I had it once, and will hopefully never have it again. But if that's what it is it's fairly easy to treat. If he has recurring irritable bowel he could try a good quality Omega 3. Carlson's Super Omega 3 Fish Oil's were like a miracle for some people I know who suffered with IB for many years. Good Luck.
