Dead Man Walking

I'm positive. Positive for strep, that is. Lovely, huh? Just what I wanted for Christmas. And because I'm also a total chicken about needles, I went with the oral antibiotics. So now I get to stew in my sore throat and congestion misery for an extra few days. I know you guys are all feeling so sorry for me right now. I can just see the tears welling up in your eyes, and your heart aching for me. So I'll be expecting chicken soup and homemade rolls and hot chocolate and herbal tea and pecan pie (because you can't eat JUST sick food, how boring) to be delivered to my house soon. I'm laying back now. Waiting......

I am SO feeling your pain. I found out yesterday that I have strep. For the second time in a month!
Hope you are feeling better soon.

Sending you thoughts of chicken soup and delicous tea! Hang in there!

Ouch. Feel better soon. I had strep last winter for the first time since I was a kid, and it was WAAAAY worse than I remember it being. At least the antibiotics work quickly and you should feel better in a day or 2.

So many tears are blocking my sight that I am typing blind. Did you get the express package we sent you? It was full of mainly pecan pie from Texas. Maybe the mailman ate them all.

Oh no! Strep sucks :( Get better fast! I'm sorry I put you to work this week! But the soaps look great :)

Soooo sorry to hear about the nasty strep. Take this opportunity to lay in bed, sleep, watch trashy daytime TV and eat ice-cream. Lots of ice-cream. In fact, sending ice-cream wishes your way right.......NOW

Oh man, so sorry that you are sick. Hopefully you have help with the kids so you CAN rest? Thank goodness for antibiotics...

Melissa, please also send a babysitter so that I can do all those other things you suggested. Especially the lay around and sleep part.

Take care of yourself and hopefully it'll leave quickly.

SUCK!!! I hope you feel better soon!!!

Suzie said...

The ONLY good thing about it being strep is that an antibiotic will make it go away! I hope you feel better soon, if you aren't already!

I hope you don't share it with the kiddo's! Sick kids and Christmas, I can't think of much worse.

YUCK! Sorry! I havn't had strep for years ( knock on wood) But I would sure hate it have it with 2 little kids running around. 2 words- Disinfectant Wipes.

Feel better soon ( PS, Costco has a decent chicken noodle soup over in the meat/fresh food area. Heat and eat!)
