I ought to start feeling better now that I'm on antibiotics and have some cough medicine for bronchitis.
This morning I'd had enough and decided it was time to get to the Dr, but when I called my PCP's office, I couldn't get an answer. Then my husband reminded me that they'd sent a letter informing me that they were moving. I looked at the letter and sure enough today was one of their moving days. Closed. So I decided to get to the Urgent Care place that's five minutes from my house. No real wait. Had a nice Doc. She was thorough and took great care to look up and determine which medicines I can use while on all the Psych meds I'm on. Since I'm on four, there are few options. The bad ones could cause heart problems if I took them.
I appreciate all your well wishes, I'm ready to get well!
When I was at the grocery store getting my medicine, I passed by things like donuts with Christmas sprinkles (I have a weakness for sprinkles) and I saw Red Velvet cookies (red velvet is another weakness.) I passed them by with some effort. I haven't had much of an appetite, but finding out I had an illness other than a simple cold makes me want comfort food. So instead, I bought myself the ingredients for crockpot chicken stew. I came home and put it all in the crockpot in time for it to be ready for dinner. When my husband came home early from work, I needed to go to the mall so I could give my hairdresser her Christmas card and gift card to Starbucks. Once there, we saw that the food court wasn't too busy. No surprise since it was 3:30. I decided that I wouldn't mind eating some Shoney's Canadian flounder and onion rings. I justified the fried dinner with Oh, I haven't had a fried dinner for over 3 months. And Oh, I haven't had enough calories the past few days. SO I did end up with a comfort food after all. I'll have chicken stew tomorrow and for 4 days more.
I noticed something tonight. The last two times my hubby has ordered a sandwich, he's chosen wheat bread over white! He's jumping on the bandwagon. And he drank water with his meal.
