I appreciate all the comments from yesterdays blog post regarding treatments for my sore throat and I am giving some of them a try.
I took it easy and napped a lot in the recliner this morning, I did not get much sleep last night as my sore throat kept waking me up. I had to suck on a cough drop every time I woke up. I called the Dr. and made an appointment for this afternoon.
I actually got in to the Dr a little early ahead of my appointment. They checked me all over and tested for me for Strep Throat. Good news is no Strep, bad news its viral. That means I just have to put up with it until it passes. I did get RXs for a sore throat and cough medicine so hopefully that will help.

Well its off to try to sleep and get some rest.
Tuesday Day 32
I was in bed about 9 hours last night and did sleep more than the night before. The salt water gargling seems to help a lot. And the cough medicine keeps me from the painful coughing. My throat does not seem as sore as it was and it is a little easier to swallow.
Busy day ahead of me at court. Ended up spending 5 1/2 hours up there and then headed to Elizabeths for a quick supper. Then to church for a small group study. Finally home around 9:00pm and just really tired almost too tired to sleep. I feel about 50% better so thats a good thing. Hope to just relax a little and get a good nights sleep.
I did get some pictures today so will add those. All I know is that they were at a school.
It was good to hear from the team today as it has been a couple days.
Off to sleep now.
Wednesday Day 33
I spent 10 hours in bed last night and this morning but don't feel like I rested very well. I am still feeling about 50% well, I feel different but not well. Throat is still sore but tolerable, eyes are watering and I have no energy. But all in all I think I am on the mend. Nothing on the schedule for today so hopefully I can continue to rest and get well. It was 55 two days ago and this morning there has been 1/2 inch of snow since I got up at 10 and it continues to snow at 34 degrees out. No news from Uganda today and they should be home in a week.
Here is todays update: No 3G service here, so no pics.....but, today we visited 6 sites: 1 revisit of a school with 700 students, 1 Church and 4 new installations at schools involving about 2800 children!
So I have tried to rest today but I could not nap but I tried. It snowed off and on all day and sometimes very hard. Not much stayed as it was above freezing. I did walk out to get the mail and the recycle tote during a lull in the snow.
|Most of the snow is gone from the front yard|
|The blue recycle tote was close to being in the creek, hope it was the wind that blew it there|
Had some of Elizabeth's chicken noodle soup for supper and now I plan to watch Survivor and then hopefully head to bed. My throat is somewhat better but still a bit sore.
Thats about it from here, Thanks for Checking In.
