On The Health Front

I've been fighting a running battle this week with what has turned out to be strep throat. So far I've been losing, but I'm hopeful that the tide is turning in my direction. This all started on Sunday when, after taking my mother shopping, I just felt quasi under the weather. That night I wasn't able to sleep longer than about an hour (or so) without waking up with a sore throat and a strong desire to pee. That scene has repeated itself every night this week so far, and quite frankly I'm exhausted.

Given how tired I am, it's surprising how well I've functioned. Ive managed to get in a light workout each day this week, and while I haven't been uber-productive, the only time I've been away from work was the hour I took to see the doctor on Wednesday. Tough guy? Hell no...more like stupid guy.

I think...make that "I hope"...I've turned the corner. While my throat and my ear still hurt, I have spats of bear ability. Maybe I'll be able to sleep most of the night without getting up repeatedly. The AdvilPM will help, but alone they just make me stumble when I get up in the middle of the night. What I need is just a lower level of throat pain.

Here's to golden slumbers. Hell, I'd settle for "tin" slumbers at this stage.
