Sick

Well, I haven't blogged for a long time. I was sick for the last THREE weeks! It was the worst cold I have ever had. The first week I had a sinus cold. I don't think that I have ever had one before, it was MISERABLE! Knock on wood I don't EVER EVER get one of those again, that was about Monday thru Saturday. By Sunday I was feeling quite a bit better, then came Monday. I woke up Monday and had a bad sore throat but I just kept telling myself it was just drainage from my cold. Finally but Wednesday I broke down and went to the doctor. By this point I could barely eat and I had NO energy. The doctor looked at my throat and said, "OH! That is DEFINITELY strep. That is a classic case of strep, but probably the worst I have ever seen!" At this point I am just so excited to get my antibiotics and get over it. Then the test results came back negative! He was shocked and I was disappointed. I ended up having some work done to check for mono and tonsillitis. These tests take up to a week to get the results! In the mean time they give me this mouth wash that is supposed to numb your throat, it is called rocky mountain mouthwash....what a joke. It tasted like gargling robutussin, awful! This was all before Memorial Day Weekend, so I knew I wouldn't hear back for a while.

Jeff, being the great husband he is, went and got me some magic medicine! haha, Ok, well, it might not be magic but it sure did work wonders. It is Tylenol Severe Congestion, you have to get it through your pharmacist. Anyway, to make a long story that really isn't that interesting short. The medicine worked wonders, I finally heard from the doctors office and they said it wasn't mono OR tonsillitis and in fact I have apparently already had mono! haha Who knew? All in all it has been a pretty awful couple of weeks. I being sick. I am happy to report that my leftover cold is finally leaving a couple of rolls of toilet paper later! :)


During it all we did get to see Jeff's cute sister Jen and her family! This was exciting since we haven't seen all of them since I think Christmas '06. They stopped by on their way to and from Utah. Thanks for visiting guys!!!

Well, sorry for the long random post full of complaints, but that is where I have been and hopefully it doesn't happen again! :)

Sorry to hear you were sick- glad you're getting over it. I think something is going around- I can't figure out if I'm dealing with a cold or allergies. :) Hope you have a great day!

We've had the exact same thing going around our family! I've heard of so many people having this now that I'm surprised the doctors haven't figured out what it is. Glad you're feeling better.

Kim, if you would come to the beach I'm sure all sickness would be gone for the rest of the summer. What do you think? Come on out!!!!!

Oh, I hope it's not Mono. My roommate in collage had mono and it's awful, especially having to take care of a child with it. although tonsillitis isn't fun either. Poor Kim, I hope you get better soon.

I am sorry you were sick. I would have loved to take the Tylenol severe congestion when I had my sinus infection. That was the worst ever, and I got it the last month of my pregnancy. I am glad you were still able to have fun with friends.

Ewww I had Strep when Adrie was a baby and that sore throat was AWFUL I couldn't even swallow. How much worse for you to not have antibiotics as a cure! I am glad you're feeling better.

I got to go to your mom-in-law's house for a baby shower a few weeks ago! It was fun to see her mirror Jeff and Morgan - they all look SO ALIKE!
