Simply stated, "I have a low grade fever." And I have no other symptoms that I am aware of. It is 92 degrees outside, and I am shivering. I have raised the AC to 78 so that I don't freeze and Hubby doesn't wilt.
As luck would have it, my PCP is not in because it is Sunday. My transplant guide says to contact PCP if my temperature rises to 101. I'm at 100.4 and will recheck in 30 minutes. I plan to call the 24/7 Mayo Transplant afterhours line if I reach the big 101. Then, I will follow whatever advice I am given. I have the option of an urgent care until 6 PM, and ER that is less that 1 mile from my front door.
I have had bad fever experiences in the past, and so we have vivid and frightening memories that cause undo stress and worry. What experience do you have that might help to put my mind at ease?
