ice pops and fudgicles :)
i am quite sure that I have never had strep throat before.
i would never have forgotten this kind of pain.
almost as bad as the ileus of 2001.
this is day 4. picked up something right after the gym on friday night.
felt it while pushing a cart around shoprite.
came on swiftly and intensified into something severe.
had to weather the worst of it without antibiotic this weekend.
tried the usual home remedies.
nothing seemed to be helping.
ice pops were soothing.
got an MD appt. Monday afternoon.
mom offered to drive. brought some ice.
my doctor said it looked like an infection. put me on Avelox.
never heard of it. some new kind of broad spectrum antibiotic. targets upper respiratory germs. quickly.
I got up again to get some pain med and something cold from the freezer. The other night, I had a 20 lb bag of ice in there which was making taking up too much space snd wasn't allowing for complete closure of the door with everything else I put in there. I pulled everything out last night, and threw out the ice. All of it. I should have saved half of it. Could have made slushies. I saved all of the boxes of fudgicles and icepops, hoping everything would freeze back up.
Ironic. i don't need ice for months and when i finally could USE some ice, I've dumped it down the drain.
just checked. the fudgicles are coming along. good.
sometimes when it hurts, I start to feel panicky.
where is my chloraseptic?
why isn't this advil helping?
can't i just spit my saliva out instead of swallowing?
whatever happened to jello pudding pops?
I made some of my own in a bowl without the sticks.
Scraped at the frozen pudding. it was pretty good.
how long does this Avelox take?
the doctor seemed more interested in the details of my work than my sort throat.
i should have asked for a narcotic pain killer.
the pharmacist said. that will be 135 bucks. for 10 pills.
I settled for 5. he said it takes 5-10 days of pills. I'll probably get the other 5. don't want to take any chances.
Ah...these semi=soft italian ices are sooo good. I am so glad this pain is going to go away soon.
will try to get back to sleep.
