Things have got off to a shaky start this morning. My husband woke up literally freezing. It wasn't cold and he didn't feel cold to the touch, but to all intents and purposes he might as well have been standing naked in the snow and ice, so violent was his shaking and teeth chattering. I managed to get him to the loo and then into the bathroom but he was shaking so much he could barely walk. He was so unsteady on his feet that I didn't even contemplate him having his normal shower - he had to settle for a very quick wash at the sink (or what my grandmother used to call 'a cat's lick and a promise') and then straight into his clothes to warm up. He was very unsteady on his feet going down stairs but he refused my suggestion to sit down and edge his way down on his bottom. We did make it down the stairs unscathed and I've wrapped him up in a sleeping bag in a nice warm room. He has had two hot drinks and some toast and has stopped shaking now. I've rung work to say I'll work from home today. I have no idea at this stage if he will be able to manage the stairs during the day, so I just want to be around in case he needs help. I wonder if he is coming down with a virus which has made him feel so cold in what is a warm house. I suppose time will tell.
