I'm collecting for Omnicef

Had a sore throat Tuesday night; didn't make it to karaoke (again).

Yesterday, I noticed that I had a swollen tonsil, covered in lovely white spots.

I was pretty sure I had strep.

Saw the PA this morning... initial test for strep came out negative.

They're sending a culture to the lab, but I won't have any results until Monday.

In the meantime, they gave me some antibiotics.

I don't usually take antibiotics, but I'm going to take these.

I've been taking antivirals, so I've got a sneaking suspicion that it is bacteriological in nature, even if the PA isn't sure.

Feels like strep to me. :(

The bad part about getting Rx samples through the physician's office is that they often forget to give dosage information.

Silly me forgot to ask. So I'm looking into it now (warning, pdf file).

A little bread, a glass of water, and thou... and thou again in 12 hours.

cryptic diptych

Sometimes, doing the noble, honourable, and right thing will bring you sorrow.

Shame on me for wanting to eat my cake and have it, too. For wanting to submerge and still breathe.

Well, really, there's no shame in wanting. Only in action. Or inaction.

You can't have everything, ldy. Sometimes you have to choose.

And the choices aren't always obvious, and they aren't often easy.

You have chosen... wisely.

But wisdom doesn't necessarily bring joy, does it.

That I'm paying the lesser of two prices is of little consolation right now.

Just holding my own.

Sometimes we're left fighting
By ourselves in the cold
And only the wind
Can hear our cries

Sometimes you
Wanna breathe it in
Sometimes you
Wanna get under my skin

'Cause I've got my angel
Sittin' on my shoulder
And I've got my heart
Leading the way

But if I'm
Strong enough you see
Then maybe you'll learn
what's its like to be me

Apologies for not keeping up with comments. I'm just not with it right now. But they are none the less appreciated for my taciturnity.*

Apologies also for not keeping up with birthdays. I've been a bad friend, I know. (Happy Birthday, Brandi!) (Happy Belated Birthday Coral, Duchess and Just About Everybody Else!)

* I'm not really sure if taciturnity is a word, but I'm keepin' it. Never in too much of a funk to abuse my good friend Mister Language.
