Under the weather

Since last Friday I've been fighting off something. It hit me pretty hard on Sunday but Monday I felt back to normal except for some congestion. On Wednesday I woke up sounding very congested but I still felt fine. About 11 pm on Wednesday night I knew I had strep throat. I was in so much pain I didn't sleep at all that night and I couldn't swallow. Thursday was an awful day for me. I did get myself into the dr. to find out I have strep throat and both ears have an ear infection. He didn't check me for sinus infection but I can tell you that I have that also (I'll spare you the yucky details of how I know I have one). For the first 24 hours of taking antibiotics I always feel worse than I started. So, it is Friday evening and I'm still in pain but at least I can function somewhat.

I'm going to miss the Duck game tomorrow night. boo hoo. :( Jay and I thought it is best I'm not sitting outside in the cold. So, Jay gets to find 3 more people to go with him. Andrew had a few ideas.

Jill and I cancelled our 2 Girl Scout meetings for Sunday afternoon. I think this is the first time in 7 years we've cancelled a meeting.

Amy, Oh I hope you start feeling better soon. I had my worst case of strep throat while on vacation in Aruba - there's no underestimating the way it can attack!

Sorry you'll miss the Duck game too, but sounds like a good choice.

Get well soon!

That sounds horribe.

I hope you feel better soon.I'll be praying for you.

Guess what? I am a co-leader of my daughters girl scout troop, so if I need any advice I am coming to you.

Feel better soon.

I hardly ever get that sick any more, but I remember when my kids were little and I was sick with stuff like this all the time because they constantly gave it to me. Miserable! I hope the antibiotics have kicked in and you're beginning to feel better.

And to answer your question, no ma'am. I'm NOT making Halloween costumes. Yet. But I strongly suspect the thought will occur to Krissy soon and I'll be back in that saddle again. LOL

Thanks for stopping by. Feel better soon!

I'm so sorry you are feeling so awful. It is too early to start getting these winter illnesses! But I see you are in Oregon, is it already rainy up there? My friend's husband is a HUGE Duck fan. They actually drove up for a game a few weeks ago. Their kids are going to be a duck football player and a duck cheerleader. Too cute.

My first time by, loved your blog!
