He was wonderful. Gave me pain medication and said that what I have is probably related to strep but doesn't test as strep and that I am probably a carrier who needs my tonsils out! Waiting on a call from the ENT to make an appointment.
Today is day 4 and I am off the Vicodin but even on Tylenol and Advil I have a pain level of 3-5. Being in pain makes you weary. I suppose I should wax prose about all I can learn from this, right? Wrong. I am too tired to care. My mind does wander to the woman who touched the hem of Jesus' garment after years of bleeding. But I cannot concentrate when I am in pain. So no great revelations in this post.
Thank you for listening.
(8/19/15 - I am feeling much better and I see the ENT on 9/4/15)
(12/11/15- my tonsils were removed 11/3/15 and I am feeling great. So happy to have them gone.)
