Strep

You know what sucks?

Schlepping oneself to two day's worth of hearings, hopped up on Sudaphed and ibuprofen, through 12 inches of snow, across sidewalks caked with ice and salt and slush, feeling like something the cat dragged in, feeling lightheaded, feeling feverish...2 degrees outside and too hot inside...

I thought I just had a bad cold.

In fact I have strep throat.

So does Lana.

One dose of antibiotics and I still feel cruddy. Lana has two doses in her and seems to be feeling marginally better.

I'm going to pop some more penicillin and some tylenol PM and hope to sleep for HOURS. (Which would be a major improvement over the past two nights of almost no sleep due to the sensation that my throat and my ear were on FIRE.)

Ooooo, strep is yucky. Even with the antibiotics it usually takes me a couple of days to start feeling normal. Hope you feel much better soon.

Strep stinks, it is very virulent this year.

Oh that really does suck. Strep hurts like nothing else. Take care of you and enjoy this very legitimate excuse to lay around!!

Hi Gretchen

Just reading you "Journey to Lana" blog and wanted to say that last July I was in Hanoi and I ate at the Green Tangarine! The food was ok but they brought soft shell crabs and expected me to eat them!! Yuck.
