The Husbear’s fever “broke” during the night. At least the higher side of it. He’s been running normal (for him) most of today. And he says the swelling wasn’t as painful today. As such, he didn’t take any of the prescribed pain medication either. So I’m taking that as a good sign. He has some bruising that’s started to present behind one of his knees, and we’re watching that. I actually expected a lot of bruising, but maybe it’s a little too early still.
In the morning he has a doctor appointment, so we’ll be asking lots of questions. And hopefully nothing new presents itself.
I know it’s only been a little over 72 hours since this all started, but I have all the respect in the world for people who are caregivers, either professionally or because they have to for family reasons. It’s been… a challenge. I love my Husbear, and would do anything for him. I just have to learn how to do this better.
Until next time...
