….or the interwebs, or to see my niece….ugh!!!!!

The most interesting thing happened to me Saturday night, my friends. An invisible and ghostly silent MACK truck ran right over me. Yep. Left me aching all over, feverish, and feeling as if my my throat had been crushed. My temp. actually reached 103.5, which is pretty amazing for me.

Since it was so late when it hit me, I had to wait until Sunday afternoon to go to an urgent care center.

Guess what? Because it was Easter, they were all closed!!!!!!!

It was Monday afternoon before I got an appointment at my regular doctor’s office. The rapid strep test came back negative, but I’ll know tomorrow for sure. In the meantime, the good doctor concluded that I was “severely congested” and treated me for sinus and ear infections. Yay.

Then of course, weirdo that I am, the meds he gave me caused a massive migraine. So, today, Tuesday (I think?), I had to get another med. Good news – no migraine this time!

I’m also snorting a steroid, which seems to be slowly helping. I could never, ever do drugs. YUCK!

I would feel pretty put out, except my co-teacher was diagnosed with strep on Friday evening, can you believe that?!! I suspect there is a carrier in our room……

Anyway, I just wanted to quickly explain my total absence over the last week. Really? Have I been gone that long? It seems much longer……

I will try and do some catching up Friday. Till then, stay safe and healthy and have a great week!

I love to learn new things-anything from how to create a junk journal to the way light moves through space; why cats present their behinds to us to the effects of chemicals on our endocrine system. If it interests me, I can spend hours reading and learning about it.

  3. >I know you are allergic to so much. I take Echinacea-Golden Seal, a herbal supplement that boosts my immune system. There are tablets like Alka-Selzer called Air-Born, developed by a teacher, vitamins and amino acids, that also works wonder. Wal-Mart and Walgreens have a cheaper version called Wal-Born. The tablets, taken right when symptoms rear their nasty heads, seem to help you from becoming too ill.I will say big prayers that your health takes an upswing and stays there. Roland
