Lovely Throat

I just checked out my throat and wow... it's not a pretty picture. It hasn't been hurting but I couldn't shake this swollen feeling. It's spotted and swollen. Can we say strep? J.R. couldn't believe it when he looked at it. He still doesn't understand why I'm not curled up in bed whining that it hurts. I guess I just got use to sore throats when I was in high school. This is the first problem I've had since I had my tonsils out back in 2001. I guess I'm due to be hit with something.

So, tomorrow I need to get into a doctor. It can't be put off because if I'm contagious that's a huge problem. I live in a house with ten other families. I can't be responsible for spreading around a bug. Not when some of the men have really touchy immune systems. Now, here's the big problem. My military ID is still expired. I have to get it fixed first thing in the morning. If I don't, I can't get into the doctor, I can't get a prescription, and I'll just keep spreading around germs. Great.

Good luck with the ID and then jumping through all the hoops to see the doctor.

Sounds like my son. He is so used to ear infections and the pain, he doesn't say anything until puss is running out of his ears. ewwww. Sorry for that visual.

I'm reading this a few days later, (we were camping) so I'm sure I'll get to your update a few posts up. :) I hope you are feeling better!
