A Week Later

Do you remember the last time you were up all night, so sick you couldn't sleep?

I know when my last time was. 😔

Though I'm writing this days later, I'm posting it the day it happened. I'd been sick for over a week, and had even been to the doctor already. But he said it was just a virus then and that if I didn't get better to come back in a week.

So. Here I am a week later.

By the way, for my American friends, I'm here in the early morning because if you come in to my doctor between 7 and 9 AM you don't need an appointment. However, you wait your turn in line and watch to see who was there before you so you know when it's your turn. It was about an hour before I got in.

Although feeling positively miserable, I couldn't help but notice as I waited, this older woman (maybe in her mid 80's or more?) wearing her spiffy red boots accompanied by a nice looking red purse as she waited too. Hope I'll be classy like her in 20+ years! (I wasn't feeling very classy that day, that's for sure).

It didn't take the doctor long to see that I had a raging sinus infection that needed antibiotic help immediately. Oh those infections are brutal, not just on the sinuses but everywhere. In a word, I was miserable.

I came home with several medications and directions to sleep and drink warm tea.

Unfortunately a decision had to be made within 24 hours as Dave and I were supposed to go to Slovenia for a retreat with our JV team. More on that in the next post.
