the progression of an illness

I was confused,
things did not happen like usual.
It was not a sinus infection that came after and allergy attack.
It was more insidious, it was a virus.
Flu maybe, but the hot and cold sweats produced no elevated temperature.
a sure sign.
Then it kept going and sure enough,
the sore throat, the clogged Eustachian tube for my left ear,
the one that does not work anyway;
The swollen lymph nodes all indications it had gone further.
Yes, the doctor concurred - a bacterial infection now.
A "Z" pack to clear that away.
First dose a bit a go -
tomorrow will be better.
