Evil bugs!

My wife finally brought one home that got me instead of her...a little sinus bug that started last week settled into my crowns and root canals and teeth late Sunday and, being stubborn (and having to co-pay more under my new insurance) I kept trying to fight it off. I went to work on Tuesday, and was actually beating on my leg at certain points to make something hurt more than my teeth did. That night I came home started taking some leftover hydrocodones; it took 4 to take the edge off enough I could sleep a few minutes at a time.

I went yesterday and got antibiotics, took the night off and laid on the couch and tried to ignore things, and am finally better today. Hopefully I still think that at 2AM when my shift is done!

Dottie worked Labor Day and so has to take a day off to make up for it (?) and picked tomorrow, giving her a 3-day weekend starting tomorrow. While I'm looking forward to it and getting some things done around her, I may not be around much while my keeper is keeping on...

May the weekend be kind to you all!

ALan,
I hope you feel better soon. The older I get, the more sinus bugs wipe me out. God Bless antibiotics and all things medical, I say!

Happy (almost) TGIF,
Deb

weird, Alan, i seldom get sinus headaches, but yesterday and the day before i had a really really bad one, (so much so that i had to take a Sinutab, but fortunately no antibiotics for me.) ...but today was the worst in the morning - now i understand the pain my sister must be in, she has a deviated syptem(?) and has had several operations.

hope yours is feeling much better, it sounds awful and i'm sorry that you had to suffer so before you got medical attention....

you have a wonderful weekend, now, you hear?

cheers for now,
pj
