So the antibiotics ended on Friday. I crossed my fingers that they would work. I felt good on Saturday, Sunday... Monday... thought I was in the clear. Nope. Tuesday morning the sore throat was back. About an hour into the day, my body felt like I'd been hit by a truck. Suck. Suck. Suck. I went in to see the doctor at 2:30 and she did another throat culture and wrote a referral to see the Ear, Nose, & Throat specialist. Suck Suck Suck. My friend Krista is a nurse and said not to wait the 5 days to hear from them. She said get the number and give them your sob story so that they get you in sooner. I did and got an appointment for tomorrow. Ugh. So irritating that its taking this long to figure it all out. Krista's other piece of advice was to write out my time line on a note card so that I'd be sure to get it all in... and switch primary care physicians. Will do. This whole thing is becoming rather ridiculous. I've been sick over 2.5 months. MONTHS. I haven't been able to take care of my own kids. I just need someone to figure it out so I can get better.
My hope is that I will be able to get my tonsils out and wash my hands of the whole thing. Who knows what they will want to do. Krista thinks they should do a blood culture and that I'll possibly be referred to the infectious disease specialists. The Lord knows. He'll take care of it. I know. Its just hard waiting.
