Not the Flu

But the terror I had to endure to discover that I do not have the flu was epic. If you haven't ever had a flu swab, don't. If your doctor sends you to get one, run. Having the flu can't be as bad as having that scrapey non-sense shoved up your nose. It was like a pap-smear in your nostril. *shudder*

Yesterday was as awful as the day before and I broke down and called the doctor. When I made it home at 4:30 I went to bed and didn't move until 10. I woke up sputtering and coughing at 10 and stayed up dealing with munch non-sense until around midnight. Then I passed back out until around 5 this morning when I woke up and mindlessly watch VH1 videos until 7:30 when I left for my appointment.

Again I feel rotten, but I have antibiotics, hot tea, soup, and Afrin so I think Ill make it through the day, however I may shoot one of my children, they are very, very loud. I apparently have some sort of infection that morphed from the cold I had last week.

So To re-cap
1. I still feel like shit
2. Being a sick mommy sucks
3. Flu swabs are a must-don't.

Have a Nice Day!

Not good! And thanks for the advice on the flu swab. I'll be running for the hills if it's every mentioned!

Get to feeling better!

That's so awful! I've never had a flu swab so thanks for the warning!! Olivia is sick too. She has a cold, which of course, turned into an ear infection. Thank god for antibiotics!! When I'm sick, I often wish it was acceptable to drug my family with benadryl so they stop making so much noise. Fell better soon!! :)

A pap smear for the nose? Yikes!

Kids are always at their noisiest and most obnoxious when you feel like death warmed over and can't cope. It is part of the kid code. lol

I hope that you feel better, soon.

I've had one of those flu swabs too, and those things HURT! I hope you start feeling better real soon! *HUGS* to you.

You are so freaking funny! Come on. It's not THAT bad. Just remember only do Afrin for 2-3 days. More than that and you'll end up with a terribly swollen nose. I saw a patient have to get a shot of steroid INTO the middle of her nose one. NOW THAT was bad. Feel better!

Feel better! Sounds pretty serious (the infection, I mean). Those things can morph so fast. Glad you listened to your body (and coworkers) and decided to rest and visit the doc. Happy healing!
