Yesterday I never got out of my pj's & stayed on the couch all day long. My joints & muscles were so sore, I had no energy & I felt like I would pass out after five minutes on my feet. Thank goodness I have such a wonderful hubby who took care of Cam so I could rest.
This morning when I woke up I was in agony with a sore throat & felt like I would die each time I swallowed. When I looked in the mirror, my throat looked like raw ground beef with white spots dabbled about. I am certainly not one to run to the doctor & absolutely not one who takes antibiotics... I think this is the second time in my life I've taken them. But, I knew something was up, so while Mike & Cam went to church, I went to a walk-in clinic by my house. I had a 101 degree temperature & as soon as the doctor looked in my throat, he knew it was strep throat.
Apparently after fifteen years old, you no longer have to have your throat swabbed. So, I left with a prescription for Amoxicillin in hopes of feeling better soon. Thank goodness I got sick when I did because of this would have happened two weeks later, we'd be on our way to Chicago & I'd be one miserable traveler.
