All better today.

After class last night - heck, DURING class, too - I was a water-drinking fiend. I must have downed a couple gallons of water, plus a glass of Emergen-C, plus a mimosa. Watched a few episodes of Supernatural to distract the mind before bed. I get kind of emotional when I have a fever, so of course poor Dean's predicaments made me cry and cry.

Went to bed before midnight, where I sweated out all those liquids plus a lot more during the night. The bed was soaked; I had to use towels to get back to sleep in the middle of the night. Gross. Slept about 10 hours. Checked my weight; down almost 5 pounds of water, I assume. I'll be rehydrating today.

Last night's fever reached 102.5°; this morning, it's 98.4°. Tada! All better! Just feel a bit tired today.

EDIT: Okay, that was a little too good to be true. ALMOST better today, though a bit of fever came back after spending an hour or so in the sun at the local swap meet. Feh.
