Well, I started feeling a little under the weather Saturday evening and it continued to progress until I woke up Monday morning. I slowly lost my voice because of a terrible sore throat, started coughing and feeling fatigued, and have had a low grade fever off and on. I visited the doctor Monday afternoon and didn't learn much. Basically, four people before me had the same symptoms and the Doctor diagnosed all of us with a viral infection. I should have pressed for more tests, but I didn't feel good and I just took his word for it. Blah. I was told to let it run its course, unless I woke up Wednesday (day 5) still feeling badly and then I could take the Z Pack he prescribed. Well, I woke up this morning, after only sleeping four hours last night, and decided by 10 am to start the antibiotics. With my luck, before it's all said and done, I'll have to make another trip back to the doctor - I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
I thought I would share a few of my favorite things I have been accumulating over the past few days. This is a very serious list - for those of you who may need clarification.
Soup every night for dinner. Erica and Saylor were so nice to bring me chicken noodle tonight!
Lenny Lilja (my boss) first told me about this Immune Booster smoothie. I'm currently
Lovely antibiotics that need to work faster. Maybe they aren't my favorite yet.
I LOVE my neti pot. Just YouTube "neti pot demo" to see how it works. I wanted to post a video of myself, but Reid would disown me.
Last, but not least, a small glass of scotch. I tried to make a hot toddy as a sore throat remedy, but almost gagged. And, anything too hot is making my throat hurt more. So, I decided to leave out the honey, tea and lemon. Whatever makes a girl feel better, right?
