The Blinding Sun

Yesterday I went to the doctor because I've been sick for 4 days.  Normally I wouldn't go to the doctor.  I can't say I really like it.  Since I missed some work and wasn't getting better, though, I thought I should go.  Just in case it was something crazy.

It wasn't bad, but it wasn't definitive.  What's wrong with me?  No one knows.  They did a flu test.  They took the longest q-tip I've ever seen out of it's individually wrapped package and stuck it up each nostril (and I mean UP - into my brain) and twirled it around and around.  I was crying, but not because I was sad.  I didn't have a choice.  My eyes were watering something fierce.  The nurse said, "umm, there's some tissues if you need one."  I had nightmares about it last night.  It was awful!

All to tell me, "good news!  You don't have influenza type A or B!"  Good news I suppose...except there's still that question, what's wrong with me?

I was given a dose of antibiotics.  They messed up my stomach.  But today I feel a little better.  The sun is shining outside.  If, when all the antibiotics are gone, I don't feel better in 5 days, I'm going to have to get some labs done.  So, that's what's going on with me.

My roses have finally bloomed.

  1. oh man, so sorry to hear you have not been feeling well for a while now, and that it is still not great. Prayers for ya!! The procedures do not sound fun; hopefully the antibiotics work, so you don't have to do blood work.
    However... Isaac is cute! and lovin the pictures.
