Well, the news is not good
Wednesday, November 02, 2011
I can't believe how sick I have gotten in just a few days. Sunday I was hit what feels like out of nowhere with a fever and a sore throat. I thought that it was nothing and I should just rest up and carry on with life. In fact I did just that. Drank lots of water and herbal tea,rested as much as I could and generally took it easy. This morning I just could not get my sore throat to calm down. Nothing was helping and I felt like I had strep. I knew this was bad news for sure. I called my Dr office and they slid me right in. I get there and my ears which have not hurt at all begin to ache in the office. I get weighed- Bad news there,back up to 185. I get temped- 98.9F I run at 96 or 97F. So I have a low grade fever. My Bp is all good in spite of my obesity. Had a nice chat with the PA and took a look at me.I actually discussed the weight issue right up front. No strep but a bad sinus infection and double ear infection. I get prescription for antibiotics and am asked to call back in 10 days to check in. She is worried I may have it go to my chest and turn into pneumonia and wants to keep tabs on me. I feel pretty good about the visit and I'm hoping for a fast recovery. Being flat on your butt is not fun at all.
