Strep Throat

Here's the update. I have strep throat.

I left the meeting this morning early and drove up to see my doctor. He looked in my mouth with his light and said, 'WOW!'. You really don't want your doctor saying 'wow' when he looks at what is hurting you. He said I have a fairly bad infection and that it will take several days to feel better.

I've got a RX for anti-biotics and Vicodin. The Vicodin definitely takes the edge off the pain in my throat, but I'm still stuck eating only soups. I hadn't eaten much in the last 24 hours and the chicken & rice soup tastes good.

I'm currently laying down on the couch with the laptop. Michele is flittering about like a nervous bird. She really doesn't like it when I'm sick. I need to be careful to not give this to Michele or the girls.

I'm going to take a nap now. Later.
