My Enemy, My Tonsils

Reporting from under about 3 feet of comforters. Again, I am sick. Always with the upper respiratory crap. I've got a throat infection so heinous that the codeine they gave me doesn't even touch the pain.

Sunday night, my fever was 102 and rising rapidly. When I shined a light in the back of my throat… well, I'll spare you the details. Suffice to say that I've rarely seen anything so gnarly, and I own three pathology textbooks.

So, E insisted on taking me to the ER, and I didn't really protest. They're treating me for strep even though the instant swab test was negative. Hopefully I'll have more info today.

Fuckityfuckityfuck. I am so weary of this. I don't care that it's no longer standard procedure for them to remove tonsils. I want the little bastards scraped!

FYI, Theraflu actually trumps codeine for ultra-severe throat pain, and it's a pretty effective fever reducer. Which reminds me: *passes out*

Feel better soon!
If you're up to it by Sunday, Steph and I would love to have you and E over for dinner. If not, we can always do it some other time.
*Hugs*

Many thanks, sweetie. We'd really like to do dinner, but it's hard to say if it'll be a good idea, even by Sunday. I'm probably going to my own doctor in the morning, and she can maybe tell me how long I should consider myself a plague carrier.

In the meantime, I don't want to hold you two up if you get a better offer for Sunday.
