So last I blogged, I told you about AF showing up Christmas morning and a sore throat adding itself to the mix Christmas night. Have stayed home from work yesterday and while I usually work from home on Tuesdays, today was maybe a max of 4 hours of work. And feeling awful the whole time. So finally dragged myself to Walgreens today (after calling my regular doc and asking for an appt with the nurse practitioner, only to be denied until tomorrow), to try out their little clinic. Not a bad thing...you walk in, answer some questions on a computer along with name, email, etc., then wait. There happened to be about 3 people in front of me, all who were there for flu shots, so their appts were pretty short.
Finally got in to see the nurse, and she was great. She did all of the necessary tests...throat, nose, lungs, and ears. Now when she looked in my right ear, she actually said, "WOW! There it is. You have an ear infection!" So thankfully, she gave me Amoxicillian, some cough syrup to help me sleep, and an inhailer to help clear up my lungs, along with the Afrin at home and she said to eat lots of Eegees! To which I replied, "excuse me?!" She verified what she had said, because Eegees are good for the throat pain and have lots of vitamin C. Nice prescription Doc! Also said, no work tomorrow but hopefully Thursday.
Then the hard part came, waiting for the prescription. I must have sat there for 30 minutes or more, and finally walked up again to check and what-do-you-know, it was ready but nobody had called me! Anyway, picked it up and finally made my way home. Took my lovely prescriptions, and am now back in bed awaiting my Eegees delivery from my lovely hubby. Hopefully this clears up quickly, and I can be back at work by Thursday. All else is well and good, time to relax a bit more. Have a nice night folks.
