More later

It's been semi-quiet here at SayreSmiles. That would be because Sayre appears to have a raging case of possibly strep throat. She would have gotten tested yesterday, but had two kids and a journey to the farm to complete - where the kids ran wild and she slept on the couch.

There's been a lot of that sleeping on the couch since Friday. The cats love it as there is almost always a warm, very warm body to snuggle up to. This while the fan is blasting over me and many large glasses of ice water are consumed.

In the middle of the night, I swallowed and it DIDN'T HURT. It was so surprising that I woke myself up to celebrate by swallowing several more times without pain.

Unfortunately, when I woke up, that familiar burn was back. So I'm popping ibuprophen and sleeping on the couch off an on again.

I may go to doc-in-a-box today anyway. My neck is swollen, my throat hurts and the alternating chills and burning up is frustrating and exhausting. But the pain isn't nearly as bad.

Decisions, decisions, decisions.

I just read your last 4 posts … was tempted to comment on the ‘political’ one because, like you … I’m finding lots to learn in this election and want to be informed … but I try to keep political thoughts out of my blogging and commenting so that’s all I’m going to add. I laughed aloud (startling Molly) when I read your ‘Horoscope’ post. I’m sorry you’re sick and hope it’s nothing serious and that REST will get you back on your feet soon.
Hugs and blessings,

Go see the Doc and get some antibitoics if it's strep. Ugh...I hate sore throats. Drink hot tea with lemon and honey...and a spoonful of hot rum or whiskey with honey before you go to bed. It helps!

Mainly just rest and try nbot to talk much :)

First of all, i Hope you went to the doctor. Strep is NOTHING to mess around with.

Second of all, I mean this with the utmost of love, please don't breathe near me. :)

Hugs and chicken soup (or pudding will probably feel better)
