Of course.

I'm sick. Some sort of something that makes it feel like my left cheek, ear, and throat are going to explode, I'm guessing a whopper of a sinus infection. I always get sick at the holidays. I spent all of my first holidays in the hospital and evidently, I thought it was a LOVELY tradition which I've done my very best to continue. I checked the archives and last year it fell on Thanksgiving rather than Christmas, but still, sick every year.

So the score is now roughly:

TRADITION: 24

IMMUNE SYSTEM: 0

So I'll be spending the next couple days like this:




Have a wonderful, warm, peaceful holiday. I'll be back at some point with photos of a couple of joyful, bright, shiny faces...sort of like these:



Merry Christmas, friends.

ETA: Urgent care doctor said it's strep. Of course, it is.

I'm so sorry Kyla, Rest, take it easy, get well.

And flush your eyes with saline so they don't get infected, too.

That's all. I will not overwhelm you with further health advice.

I hope you get well soon enough to enjoy the holidays.

Merry Christmas, Kyla. The plague has us too. A full round of head colds for the family with the added bonus of pink eye in the rose coloured daughter. Oh well. Bring on the shining faces.

Crap. Strep sux big time when you are an adult. Sorry, Kyla. If it's any consolation we're in a similar situation ourselves. Ben has his traditional holiday illness as well.

Sorry to hear this. Rest and feel better.

Y'know, I *always* get sick at Christmas-time. Coincidence? I think not.

painted maypole said...

but at least with strep you can take an antibiotic and start feeling better fairly soon.

hope you're on the mend enough to enjoy the big day.

Merry Christmas!
