      I need some warm weather. I've been running a 102-103 temp. for three days and hate the shivers. I picked up my son's nasty cold bug last week. I soaked for half hour in a hot tub and was still shivering the whole time. This cold rain is not helping at all.

      As it turns out, we got no snow at all. We are too low in elevation and the lake is still in the 50's which holds our temp. warmer into fall. I am still so sick. Think I'll take a trip to the dr's today. Can't go on much longer like this.

      Actually, nothing like some strong drugs to raise my spirits....lol! Turns out I have pneumonia and was dehydrated. Got pumped full of IV fluids yesterday and started on some antibiotics. Man, I thought I was dying.

      I feel like I'm coming back from the brink of death. My Doc said today I was the sickest person they've seen in their office all year (and THAT was supposed to make me feel better?!). I don't think I've been sick in 20 years. Not used to laying around, watching old movies etc. Leaving all the cooking up to DH...which could be a real problem cuz he never cooks...lol. Think we'll be having a lot of take out till I recover.

      Paula,

      I hope you feel better.... a lot of chicken soup, water, and rest. Did you get sick from putting up the cover for the pond? I remembered you said it was cold and wet.
      Happy Koiing!!! Water and nothing but water or filtration????

      I think I picked up my son's nasty fever/cough bug but mine went quickly into my lungs. Weird too cuz I went for a nice 3 mile run on Friday with DH, then by Sunday I felt like I'd been run over. Four days of fevers with no let up despite Tylenol and coughing so hard nearly constantly (I oughta have six pack abs by now...lol!) but I still couldn't kick it. Felt like someone should put me out of my misery. I actually went into 47 degree pond water to catch my SU with a 102 temp...which may have been the only temporary relief I had from the fever.

      Take really good care of yourself, ok? My FIL was in the hospital for a week due to pneumonia. He got out today.

      The SU looks great!

      Thanks everyone. I'm still hacking like a chain-smoker...but I'm getting there. DH is aggravated with my Doctor's treatment plan, and argueing why I should be on 'xyz' meds in addition etc. as he gives HIS patients. I feel like telling him he can take it up with my doctor and let the two docs have it out on the phone. I just need my rest. So I've got two Doctors telling me two different things.

      Like what you need right now is two docs in a pi**ing contest.

      Please be serious about the rest, we want to be well so.... when you start feeling a little better, don't overdue it.
      The body starts sending you more energy and it's meant to be used to fight the last of the illness. That's some of the best advice I ever got from a doc.

      The first time I didn't listen and the pneumonia symptoms lasted months, the next time I did and was through it in 6 weeks.

      Ok, edit because I reread your post. Is one of the docs your hubby? If so, he loves you and wants what is best for you.
      But he should be the one on the phone, lol.

      Yeah, DH is one of the Docs...lol. His specialty is oral surgery/dentistry though. But the man does know his meds and often feels docs underdose patients. He'll tell me I should always double the first dose of meds and of course that works great for his patients, but I can't go against MY doctor's orders. So I go through this back and forth with him any time I need to take some meds. I SHOULD just put him on the phone with my doctor and save myself some breath.

      Spring update. My SU made it through our very cold and snowy winter under the greenhouse and is looking great! All the koi look so much bigger each spring, don't know how they do it when they don't get any food from me all winter. They have just started to eat this week. Not sure when I'll get a chance to catch and measure. Might wait for it to warm up a bit more. Pattern looks about the same, though I think some of the sumi is starting to come in darker.

      SU update pics

      My SU made it through a long winter. It's in the pond with some big ones but hangs in there well with them. Not the best pics, but it'll have to do for now.
