I haven’t posted in a few days because I’m sick as a dog!!
All the medicine on my sick tray is what I’ve tried over the course of the past few days … plus the meds they prescribed me today.
Sick tray is a cookie sheet covered with a TEKLA Dish towel.
I haven’t stamped or touched my sewing machine in almost a week… insert sad face!!
So … I had two choices today
- Post nothing
- Post about my health/ my trip to the walk in clinic
I decided I would post about my health …who knows it may help someone because I learned a lesson today!
It started late on Wednesday with a sore throat … it was just scratchy for a few days .. on Friday it became worse and all of a sudden I was wheezing …but … how could I wheeze when I didn’t have a cough … in the past wheezing has always followed a few days of coughing.
When I talked to my sister on the phone (on Saturday) … she said you need to go go the walk in clinic. Long story short I did not. Big mistake!! Saturday and Sunday night … zero sleep and I mean zero!!!!
I was counting the hours until 8am when my doctors office opened so that I could call and make an appointment. Well, guess what … she didn’t work today. So I got dressed real quick and drove to the walk in clinic as fast as possible.
The lesson learned was next time go when your sister tells you. In my defense I don’t like going to the walk in clinic because it exposes you to so many more germs. When I see my doctor there’s a few people in the waiting room … walk in clinic there’s a ton of people and the wait is long!!!
My oxygen level was low … I was wheezing like crazy and I have a nasty cough (and a man voice). They instantly gave me a breathing treatment. Checked me for strep and the flu …both were negative. I have bronchitis (sadly I’ve had it more times than I can count).
Fast forward six hours later … I feel worse ….but like my sister said… it will take the medicine a few days to start working. The doctor also said if I’m not feeling better in three days to come back.
I hope all of you stay healthy …. It’s been a crazy winter!!
p.s. If I don’t post tomorrow …. you’ll know I’m still feeling really yucky.
