I woke up this morning and couldn't swallow and could barely talk. The Urgent Care is becoming my best friend these days. Luckily Daddy's work is pretty dead this weekend. He's either really busy or slow. This is a slow weekend.
I sent him off to the Lowes Clinic with the boys. He's never taken them before. The boys haven't been there for awhile, so they were excited to go. It was mystery package. They ended up making a garage and mini car.
I sat and waited at the Urgent Care. I'm not one that wants to be medicated all the time, but man when I feel like crapola, and I can't even talk to my kids that's a problem in my mind. With the last cold I had I fought it off myself. I knew I didn't have Strep Throat. I had that after Thanksgiving; I just didn't feel the same way. She said, "Man you are swollen! No wonder why you can't breathe or swallow!" She wrote me a script for an antibiotic, but told me that she thought it was viral. I told her that I'd try the other things she told me to take first for a few days before getting the script filled. I got a nose spray, sudafed behind the counter, a cough syrup and more Ibuprofen because we just used up our bottle. I'm on more meds than I think I've been on for a long time.
After an extensive shopping trip at Walgreens, I finally got home. I can breathe now! That's a start! I went to do the Netti pot before taking this stuff, I was so plugged up that nothing would drain. Seriously 5 minutes over the sink, not a single drip! I'm a walking germ!
Mica said to me, "To make you feel relaxed, you could put in a movie for us. Then we'll be quiet for you!"
It's funny how kids turn things into being all about them. I made them wait. I'm not quick to let them veg in front of the TV. Finally I agreed to put something in. One wanted Doodlebops, and one wanted Land Before Time. Instead I picked their movie. They watched Despicable Me. They forgot my sister
It was nice using a digital device as a babysitter for awhile. Afterwards Isaak went down for a nap and Mica read. A pretty low key day.
