Baaa...I'm sick

Suffering from a massive headache and pretty major body aches, I shuffled home yesterday an hour early and went straight to bed. In spite of the fact that it was 88 degrees outside, I turned off our bedroom A/C and crawled under 2 blankets, shivering.

I stayed in bed until this morning, only getting up to bathe and nurse A. Then it was off to the doctor's office where they oohed and aahed over my inflamed tonsils, throat and lymph nodes.

But since the initial strep test came back negative, I was sent home to battle my fever with alternating doses of Tylenol and Advil. They also gave me a prescription for antibiotics to fill if I'm not feeling better by tomorrow morning.
