I opted to try out the Walgreens Take Care Clinic. There is one at K&N and I didn't feel like going to Town & Country to my doctor. It was a lazy thing really. So, I got there, checked in, and within 5 mins I was having my vitals taken and after telling her my symptoms a rapid strep test was swabbed. Then I went into the next room where I met the nurse practitioner. About 5 mins later the other gal came in to confirm it was strep. They got me a prescription and told me no smoochin' and throw out my tooth brush. Easy enough.
Tuesday, I woke up feeling a little better, but went to work and had just 1 interview to conduct and some meetings.
Today, I woke up at 4:15 with insane pain in my ears and throat. They said it could spread to my ears. I debated on going into work, but knowing I was having a hard time swallowing and talking, I knew 3 interviews would not be best for me. So I called in. I hate calling in. I had my email up all day keeping track of everything. I really just needed to not talk.
So, I proceeded to watch all 4 hours of the Today Show - even Hoda & Kathy Lee. That horrible hour of TV. I then got back in bed until about 4, I had slept off and on all afternoon and had Riley to keep me company.
The highlight of the afternoon was that I recieved a package from Marie Claire with some of their favorite items from their past issues. I got a cute tote bag, bracelets, a book and room spray. It was so unexpected and it was the bright spot in my day.
Now, I'm just going to relax this evening and take it easy. Back to work tomorrow, back to talking. I'm sure Jeff appreciates me not talking.
