Well, I'm writing this blog post from my couch. It's 11:40 a.m. and I'm officially on Day 10 of being sick. This all began the day after we got back from our 1st anniversary trip. I felt a chest cold/cough type thing coming on and began taking meds almost immediately, hoping to nip it in the bud.
On day 3 of my sickness, I left work early because I was feeling pretty awful. Day 4 was the 4th of July, so I was grateful for another day off. I worked that Thursday and Friday. On about day 7, although I was annoyed that my sickness did in fact turn into a full-blown chest cold, I seriously thought it was beginning to going away.
That is, until yesterday, when this deep cough wouldn't go away and I discovered puss heads on the back of my throat (yuck!). I cannot be 100% sure that it's strep until I have a strep test done tomorrow morning. That's as early as my doctor can see me. But this whole thing has moved from my chest to my lungs and it has me a little worried.
So, the lesson learned? When a sickness lasts for more than 3 or 4 days, go to the doc sooner than later. Because if you don't, you could end up like me. :(
