Day 356

Alright so since we were off to such a great start yesterday I have to tell you a story. A story that really accentuates the feeling of one more thing.

Last night my throat was a little sore, but I assumed it was because I was in the car with the air blowing in my face for a while. This morning I woke up unable to swallow without lots of pain. So, being responsible (and having had strep chronically as a child) I called my doctor who saw me about an hour ago. My rapid strep test came back very quickly as positive, and so far I only have a light fever. She asked how I knew it was strep. Ha! I have done this so very many times. So now I have a script for penicillin, I have Tylenol, chloraseptic, and throat drops. Oh, and orders to gargle 3 times a day with salt water. I would say I'll still be counting points, but I really doubt that I'm going to be able to eat today. So, hows that for one more thing? I also have chills and a slight head ache.

I'm not trying to be a downer, in fact I am trying to have humor about it, but honestly this is really really frustrating.

I will edit this to add anything I eat today...kind of like tracking live.

Today:
1 serving creamy chicken and potatoes: 6
1 serving lemon pudding: 4

I'm glad you are on top of things. The sore throat of Strep is NOT fun. I hope you are feeling better soon! Don't be frustrated. Sometimes, we just have to roll with what comes our way. Get lots of rest though.

I get tonsilitis/strep throat fairly regularly. Someone told me it's a Taurus thing! ;o)

Hope you feel much better very soon!
