When I got home, Dallas was running a fever, so I gave him his next dose of medicine.
The only thing Dallas could hold down was porridge which was ironic since he detested it. Still, it was a clear indication that he was very ill. After making sure he was comfortable, I left for the supermarket to get more flour and other needed things. The next stop after that was at the local business. I needed to confirm the next HVAC maintenance and the window shop for new HVAC equipment. The HVAC professional was Dallas’ friend, and I wanted to update him on how he was fairing. I needed the HVAC repairman to service the HVAC unit so that it continued to help with indoor comfort, especially now that Dallas was feverish. I enquired about several HVAC brands and then set up an appointment two days away. The HVAC provider would work on the HVAC installation and installing a new thermostat that I bought. Dallas was the one who knew a lot about HVAC; I never handled anything to do with it. Before his current job, he worked in the HVAC business, where he acquired his skills. Thanks to him, our quality HVAC was always in good condition. When I got home, Dallas was running a fever, so I gave him his next dose of medicine. I wanted to rush him to the hospital, but he adamantly refused and said the fever would break. The doctor had told us to expect such episodes but only for a day. Dallas looked frail, especially for a man who filled the room just by walking in. As the week progressed, he got better, and by the end of two weeks, he was fine and back to work.
