We had an unexpected guest at our dinner party on Saturday. The Christmas Grinch arrived early and stopped up our sewer line. Several attempts to undo the plug before the guests arrived failed. We had an alternative bathroom that worked fine, so we went ahead with the dinner.
Dinner was almost finished when I suddenly developed a severe headache and a sore-throat. The rest of the night was rough. I apparently had some fever while I slept, enough for my skull to feel inflamed the next morning.
I spent most of Sunday reclining and staring mindlessly straight ahead. I did revive enough to go out in the afternoon to unplug the sewer line. While I was doing that, Kathy came out and promptly fell--likely tripped by Mr. Grinch.
Monday was a repeat of Sunday, except more fever, treated with Tylenol and cool showers. Kathy was limping and sore from her fall.
Today, I feel a little better. I may make it after all.
