Hot, Hot, Hot!

A few weeks ago I had tried to call my general doctor of many years, and his office number no longer worked. I tried the new number I was given, but it was for a practice that didn’t list his name. I ended up seeing a cardiovascular doctor instead, so I didn’t pursue it any further.

Yesterday, I decided to try his number again. I called the new number and went through to the answering service. Turns out he is part of that practice now, and they called in a prescription for an antibiotic for me. Yeah! Meds!

However, the lumps in the back of my throat aren’t getting any better. I have a feeling that I have a few hours in my doctor’s office tomorrow morning ahead of me.

I woke up around 1:30 last night to go to the bathroom, and I realized that I felt really hot. I took my temperature and it was 101.1. I don’t think I’ve ever had a temp over 100.6 or so. Not only does my temp run low normally, but I rarely get a fever. 101.1?!? Damn!

Have you ever seen the commercial for the Excedrin that the woman takes without water while chasing her toddler around the house? I always wondered why you would ever need those. Any time I’ve ever needed an Excedrin, there has always been water nearby. Fortunately, my Dad received a sample package of them a few months ago and he passed them on to me. After taking my temp last night, I finally read the package. They dissolve in your mouth. Dissolve! In your mouth! You don’t have to swallow whole pills! Now I know when you need them – when the thought of swallowing a pill is simply agonizing because your throat is all lumpy! Now my fever is down somewhat, but the lumps aren’t. Other than a sore throat, I feel fine. A little achy, and I can’t push myself to do too much, but otherwise fine.

I’m bummed that I missed Chuck & Tiffany’s party last night – and the big news! (Congratulations!) And I missed Elaine’s birthday party. Whatever is causing this sore throat is not a gift I would want to give to anyone this holiday season, so it’s probably for the best.

By the way – “Down With Love” is a *great* movie to watch when you’re sick. I just love that movie!
