Day 61

I thought for sure that I had strep. I mean, I had been around two little boys who had it, and I had been around them a lot!

So, when my throat started hurting (a lot), I decided to make a doctor's appointment. I didn't get in to the doctor until today, and yesterday things had gotten a lot worse. 

Today, while the nurse was swabbing my throat she says, "oh, you have a big pocket of pus back here." Yummy. 

After all of that fun stuff, the result comes back negative. In a way that was kind of upsetting because then I didn't know what was wrong with me, but I'm glad I wasn't spreading strep around :) 

Now I'm just waiting it out to see if it goes away in a week. 

I feel a little bit better (I think the nurse popped the pocket of pus, which may have helped?)

I was also prescribed this medicine, to help with the pain. 

It works. It pretty much instantly numbs my throat. Oh, sweet relief.

I hope you all are having a better week than I am! :)

I had to go jean shopping this week because my favorite (and only) jeans (that I bought for $3) grew two holes in them :( I hate it when that happens, because it's so hard to find good, cheap, jeans.

Umm..that does sound yummy.

So sorry you are having this rough week. I hope it and you improve greatly!

Nice picture of the medicine. It looks great next to the black background.

You know, I was always amazed at the nice clothing that could be found at the thrift shops in the Springs. It wasn't worn-down stuff like what you would find in the thrift shops in Albuquerque. But perhaps that's where you found your $3 pair of jeans in the first place:) Happy hunting!
