The Throat's Better... but Now I've Got Another Quandry

So... my sore throat finally "broke" earlier today (and believe me... I'm INCREDIBLY thankful for that! It was so bad that my back molars hurt, and the pain went all the way up to the bottoms of my earlobes! YIKES!). But, my new predicament is this: Every time I eat something, it makes the sides of my throat all scratchy, and I wind up nearly coughing up a half a lung!

I've been taking my inhalers regularly (I'm asthmatic), and taking cough syrup every four hours or so, too. I've also been taking my husband's prescription strength Ibuprofen (oh, hush... he never uses it!), and he even found some perfectly fine, leftover amoxicillin (he's so bad... he only takes the stuff until he feels better, then he stops -- which actually worked out in my favor this time, but I still don't like him doing it), so I just began taking those, rather than try and squeeze in a doctor's appointment with at least two kids in tow (and for those of you who've done that before, you KNOW what I'm talking about!).

I've been lounging in bed for the better part of two days, and not feeling the least bit fidgety about it yet, which is a clear indicator that my body's still not functioning right. But, I believe, as of this morning, I've turned a corner. At least I hope so.

Hopefully, I'll be back to my old writing self soon. Thanks to all of my blogger buds for my get well wishes. You guys are all so sweet! :0*

Oh honey,
Sorry. I have been away from the computer and have not read my many blogs( I can't get on and just read one (of course yours is my fav) that I surrender myself to instead of cleaning...Because I have been cleaning! I am so sorry that I didn't know that you were sick... I hope you are turning the corner and feeling better!
Love Sus.
Go to your email in a bit... I have a few things to send you!

I am glad that you are feeling better at least a little bit! I finally totally feel fine now...and I am so thankful! Glad to see things are looking up for you! Take it easy and do not over do it!
