And now for something completely different...

I felt a sore throat coming on yesterday afternoon and felt crummy last night.  Early to bed, two Tylenol PMs to help me sleep.  I woke up...still feeling like garbage.  I took some Advil and went to school, and made it through the day.  I am starting to feel crummy again.  I'm hoping that going to bed early again will help, but am not holding my breath.  Today is Monday; this Thursday will be three weeks since my last infusion.  This Thursday is also the day (night) that my husband and I are going to see Meatloaf, with the tickets I got him for Christmas. 

So, to sum up, I am following the pattern I have established this winter.  In a way, this is good- more evidence for Dr D (when I see him in two weeks) to use when I ask him to bump me up to every three weeks for my infusions.

However, the timing could have been slightly better...I will be quite pissed if I am too sick to enjoy the concert Thursday...

  1. sore throat is not a lot of fun its just uncomfortable and difficult to swallow.

    usually, i would take the Nim Jiom Cough Syrup (www.geocities.jp/ninjiom_hong_kong/index_e.htm ) which has a thick consistency formulation. it coats the throat and includes herbs that are particularly good for that application.

    i hope it works on you as well.
