I am here...although, my children and husband would beg to differ with me on that. I have been in a state of comatose for the past three days. Moaning and tossing and turning on the couch. Coming down with something is always no fun, but when your body aches, your feet are chilled (no matter how many socks you have on!), your head is throbbing and if you look to focus on something you get light headed and almost want to pass out, you have a fever of over 101 and then break it only to get it back plus on top of it all, your throat is killing you. Yep, that is no fun and that my friends is how I have spend my last days of 2010. I guess if I have to send it off, there is no better way than to say sayonara and not look back.
My dear Sir took me to urgent care today because I was having a mental breakdown. I couldn't take it anymore. Being sick for three days straight, which actually felt like a week, was taking a tole on me. I just didn't know what was wrong and couldn't stand the pain any longer.
So, we get to urgent care and let me just say, those people there are awesome! They got me right in, I didn't even have time to sit down, they finished my paperwork and as soon as I got up to find a seat they called my name. Sweetness! Got me into a room and then took my vitals. Swabbed my throat because I was pretty sure of what was going on with me, but had to be sure and came in 6 minutes later to confirm my suspicions. Yep, Strep Throat! Yea for me!
The doc was going to give me pills but I asked for the shot. Are you kidding me?! If I can get better that much sooner, shoot me up baby! And now, 9 hours later I am actually sitting up, coherent with the fam and actually capable of typing as well! Craziness! But man, that shot kills! My hip still hurts, but my throat is on the mend and I am a participating citizen in my household again. Which, from what Sir told me, was really freaking my kids out. Seeing mom just lie on the couch for days really messed with them.
Anyway, I hope you all rang in the new year in your own dear way and it finds you all healthy and happy. Many blessings to you and yours this new year!
