Well!! I am not going to let my blog streak end, just because my sickness streak did!
Every fall/winter/spring from September to April, I would get a cold every 6-8 weeks. Last September, I got a cold one week before my scheduled tonsillectomy. I fought that thing like the plague to get it out in time so my long-awaited surgery wouldn't be impacted.
Sure enough, it was gone in time, and my surgery went great. The only lasting effect I notice is if my throat gets dry, where the incision/burning occurred on my tonsils tends to hurt, almost feeling like a pinch.
And I didn't get a cold all winter long! Not a single round of sniffles or a tiny sore throat! It was glorious!
Nine months later - aka this week - Brad comes home last Monday with a cold from his work trip. I didn't get symptomatic at all. Until I woke up at 0330 this morning with the most burninating sore throat EVER. I quickly got up and drank water, thinking it was just my scarring acting up. Nope. Massive headache as well, almost passed out when I stood up. Same thing at 0430. When my alarm went off at 0545 to get up for work, I promptly grabbed the phone and called in sick. Pretty sure my coworkers don't want this!
Slept off and on all day. Toughed down as much food as I could - lots of hot soups and cold popsicle-type things. The only medication I'm giving myself is throat lozenges - I normally would be all drugged up on cold medicine but I just can't do it this time!
I did get some productivity done - I did some paperwork for work at home and emailed off to my coworker. I also made appointments via email to start really focusing our finances - life insurance, RRSPs, etc.
I was planning on doing a double workout class tomorrow evening - body combat and then zumba. I definitely won't make it to body combat due to the timing of the insurance appointment. I will play it by ear for Zumba and just get a walk in if I don't think it's gonna happen - either time wise or body wise!
Ungfh. Now I'm at the stage of where the clothing on your body makes your skin hurt. Usually that doesn't come until day 2-3 for me, so maybe this is going to be an express cold - I hope!!
Thanks for all your well-wishes on my status update!
Substitute the bed for couch, and this is me!
