The Diagnosis

Well, it's been an interesting couple of hours.  Last night Dad took a look at my throat and thought I might have strep throat.  I was given a very comforting blessing, and then tried to got to sleep.
Emphasis on tried.  I kept tossing and turning, trying to find a comfortable position where I would be able to swallow as little as possible.  When I finally did drift off to sleep, I had dreams about being a disease-ridden outcast.
Needless to say, I called the doctor's office to get an appointment as soon as they were open. ;)  The doctor was very kind, and pretty fun.  He took a look, and a couple swabs, and said that I don't have strep, just a viral infection, and that I should be able to fight it off with ibuprofen and Jamba Juice (cold drinks). 
So here I am, ditching school so I don't feel sick over finals week, sucking ice cubes and looking up my teachers power points so I don't completely miss the material (one good thing about having schools go online).  I just hope they don't have any quizzes today. ;)

Fare thee well, friend!


  1. Oils, ahem! Use Meleluca and OnGuard

    1. Actually, you'd be surprised just how much help Jamba Juice actually is! I'm barely having any trouble at all now!
