I had a complication today. During the night my throat was on fire, so I took some advil and went back to bed. A friend stopped by for a while this morning and by the time she left, I was wiped. I didn't have a fever, so I figured it could be no more than a sore throat leading to a cold. My mom called to check on me and she convinced me that if it was strep and it went untreated, the infection could spread to other parts of my body which is not what I need right now. After talking to Dr. Hoberman's office (hoping they would just prescribe an antibiotic), I was off to prime care and sure enough, strep it is. I laughed when the doctor said he wrote me a work excuse through Friday.
I am happy to have everyone home for the evening. Randy stopped at Hamilton El. on his way home and picked up dinner that was prepared especially for us. We so appreciate the meals, the cards, and all of the ways people have expressed their love.
Thanks for checking on me. I may have more info. after the post op appointment tomorrow.
