So all day Friday I felt absolutely awful after the colonoscopy. Based on the symptoms which included fever, chills, and debilitating body aches, it became clear to me that this wasn’t a cold I was fighting, it was the flu. My energy level was just non-existent, watching TV was too much work, seriously. I went to bed that night feeling miserable, luckily it seems my fever broke sometime during the night.
On Saturday I was far from normal but at least I could function, even doing some normal chore stuff without having to take a 2 hour nap in between. It felt good to at least have regained some level of functionality. I got some 3D printing in, some WoW, and we watched a Hitman’s Bodyguard Saturday night with Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson. It was funny as long as you aren’t a prude. I am pretty sure the word MF’r was used triple digits in total. It was B+ for me.
Sunday morning my improvement continued from an energy perspective however I still had awful coughing fits and my red, sore nose continued to require regular blowing. Unfortunately as I was improving Cindy was sliding downhill. She obviously has whatever I have, only a day or two behind symptom-wise.
I actually felt good enough to go out on an EUC ride late morning. The weather yesterday was just about perfect with temps in the mid-70’s with low humidity. It felt so good to just be out cruising around after feeling so shitty for the last 3-4 days.
I have been having the check engine light on the Prius come on a couple times in the last week or so. My code reader indicated it was an error code that has to do with the coolant control valve. A quick internet search revealed this is a common failure in the 2nd Gen Prius. A video search revealed it was something that looks to be somewhat of a hassle but doable by someone with my mediocre mechanic skillset. I ordered a genuine Toyota part which I hope to install next weekend.
During the afternoon I got around to hanging up some stuff for Cindy in the office for her crafting. I 3D printed a bunch of roll holders to hold her Cameo vinyl rolls. I also printed these cool hexagon shaped storage cubes that we mounted on the other wall. You can add as many as you like to create a cool geometric looking storage grid. Finally we added a light over the top of her Cameo. Of course it is no ordinary light, it’s a Philips Hue bulb that you can voice control with the Echo.
