I am slowly recovering from an infection that knocked me out and lept me from working and writing this week. The infection centered around my tonsils, but it wasn’t technically tonsillitis, at least according to the doctor. That diagnosis didn’t make things any easier on me, however. The trouble began Sunday evening, and by Monday I was in agony, unable to swallow anything but liquids. I made the appointment to see my doctor first thing Tuesday morning and he told me that I had an infection, not strep, but it wasn’t tonsillitis. He prescribed medicine for the inflammation and pain, and I began to recover slowly.
I took Tuesday and Wednesday off from work. By Tuesday evening I felt noticeably better, and through Tuesday night and Wednesday I slept for about 18 hours to regain my strength. The rest of Wednesday I continued to make progress so this morning I am back at work here at home.
The other thing that is going on this morning is the first snowfall of the season.
I don’t know if I am really ready for the snow, but we did go to the supermarket last night to get a few items, but not any panic-buying stuff. The weather is supposed to warm up tomorrow and all of this snow should melt away rapidly.
I hope that I will soon be completely over the infection and feeling better by the weekend because I want to spend as much time with Hal as possible before he departs to visit family on Monday for a few days before Thanksgiving. He will be back on Wednesday so we will have the holiday together. I have no family to visit over the holidays, so I will always be here to take care of The Stooges.
