I said last week that I recovered from an infection. Well, in a way, yes, the condition improved immediately. But there was a lingering low grade fever that comes on and off during the day for some days now. It’s just an uncomfortable feeling nothing more. On Saturday, I went to the clinic for the regular bloodtest which was due and at same time did a FBC – did not show infection. Good. But with this lingering low grade fever – 37.1to 37.4, may mean the infection is still there, just not detectable in the blood and therefore not serious.  Anyway the doc requires me to continue with the cipro for another 5 days. I googled cipro on the dose and use. I noted that it should not be taken with diary and certain supplements such as calcium, magnesium etc. as they reduce absorption of the antibiotic in the gut. Ah…. I take yogurt and supplements at breakfast.  Looks like I have to move the supplements to after lunch and have the yogurt in the afternoon at teabreak time.  So, was there low absorption and could that be the reason for the lingering fever? Well I am low dose cipro at 2x250mg once a day. Will have to see. I have 3 more days to go.  Did I feel frustrated? P is away this whole time and I had plans for lunch with friends.  I had to cancel them all. But I was not that much dismayed. Why?  Early last week I received a beautifully hand-written note and in it was a verse which I kept reflecting on throughout this time.  “You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in You. Lord, You establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished You have done for us.” (Isaiah 26:3)
