Take two and call me in the morning....


I have been fighting a heck of a bug for the past three weeks. The day after we came home from the cabin, I starting feeling achy, tired and couldn't stop coughing or sneezing. Sounds like fun, huh? I went to the doctor about three days in; tested for strep - negative, tested for flu - negative. They told me I had a virus and to take Tylenol and Coricidin HBP for the symptoms. Well, the Tylenol only worked for 2 of the four hours and the antihistamine kicked my butt! I was so out of it, there's no telling what was going on in this house! So three weeks into this craziness, I went back today. I had my mind made up, I was not leaving without an antibiotic.... Well it took the doctor all of 5 minutes to say that I had a sinus infection and a double ear infection. So an Allegra, two horse-size pills of amoxicillin and some Motrin later and all is right with the world! They promised me I'd be feeling better tomorrow... I sure hope so!
