Sigve reports by phone this morning that he's feeling even better today, as his temperature has gone further down. He's still swallowing pills himself, he's developed a technique to get them down without too much discomfort, but he's not eating any solid foods. Fortunately his mouth is not dry, "only" sore.
So his conclusion is that so far things are a lot less bad than what he had imagined they would be :-)
The sun is not out today, but every time Sigve says he's feeling good, or better, I feel like the sun is brightly shining!
