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.
