Just to update anyone who's interested...
Brad's fever has continued and fluctuated through the week but every morning, he stubbornly forced himself out the door. He's on some prescription strength Motrin and is doing pretty much everything he can... except what he really NEEDS to do - and that is REST for DAYS. Fortunately, he has Saturday and Sunday off - although he has a mandatory study group on Sunday afternoons. But I think at least twenty four hours of doing NOTHING at all will be very helpful. He has had papers every night this week which has not really allowed him to relax much in the evenings but it has been kind of fun for me to help him craft them.
I am hoping to set up an appointment for him to get some bloodwork done this afternoon so that we can find out if there is something more sinister afoot - like Lyme's Disease or something. Gulp.
Thanks to all of you who prayed - it made a difference. Brad said he could tell people were praying for him.
In the midst of all this, Stan had a health crisis of his own that necessitated a visit to his primary care physician. But that is another story for another day. But, suffice it to say that we have had enough drama around here to last us for a long, LONG time.
