temperature conversion

37 C = 98.6 F
38 C = 100.4 F
39 C = 102.2 F
40 C = 104 F

That's easy enough: normal, low-grade fever, fever, high fever. Got it.
If I can just remember what normal is.

Funny -- at the hospital they always chart temp. in C. It was hard to get used to at first, I always had to convert to F in my mind before I could interpret. Now, I pretty do not remember how to convert anymore, I just know about what you wrote: 37 = normal, 38 = temp (low grade), 39+ = problem. Your method is more sophisticated than you think! Even doctors think this way! :)

Hope you feel better soon.

Oh, yuck. I hate being sick too. Been coughing for 2 weeks also. Went to dr for regular physical and he didn't even ask about my cough. Go figure. Maybe I should return to Russia and see your guy!
Hope you feel better soon!

Love from El Paso. Sorry to hear you are so sick. Remember that our "normal" temps are usually 96 to 97, not 98. Love you. Get well soon.
