An "A" Kind of Day!

So, I can't talk. I have no voice. Just call my squeeky.
My kids are happy to have a mom who can't talk...

I go to the doctor. Guess what it is...
Bronchitis? Um... no.
I thought for sure I had bronchitis. My chest is sore. I'm caughing. I'm tired - really tired.
"Ladybug", she said, "you have rip roaring strep."
"Huh? I don't have white patches on my tonsils. I just can't talk."
"The rapid strep test we did lit up like a Christmas tree."
"Really? That's good, I guess..."
"Ladybug, did you have nausea?"
"Loose stool?"
"Sore throat?"
"A little, but I thought it was from coughing"
"You poor sweet thing!"
"Once again, I don't present a classic case."
"You never present a classic case, Ladybug. Take these pills twice a day and you'll feel better real soon."
I got pretty blue pills... I read the side effects - They make you poop your brains out. Cool - blue poo... that could be fun. I'll keep you posted.

It was report card day today. It was an A kind of day!
Everyone was pleased! That long line of A's down the page always makes them - and me - so happy.

Lets hope they keep it up until they graduate. I'm lookin' for a college scholarship for these kids. :-)

WOW!! That is what I do...I get the "NO VOICE" thing and then bronchitis and then pneumonia!! I am still not the greatest but I think it was flu this time. I am really ran down. I am just staying in and not doing very much!! Sounds like you might be doing the same thing. Here in Savannah I lose my voice at least twice a year from this stuff!! They call it Savannah Crude here in the South...and I always get it...SURE!! Take care and rest and take the pretty BLUE pills please!! Sandy

Glad to know the report cards look so good. It's nice isn't it???

Jane said...

Well, I think that was more information than I needed. Just do us a pictures of the "blue" stuff!!!!!
Hope you feel better soon.

Katherine said...

Glad your on the mend! Another "A" - you'll probably lose a few pounds with all that blue pooping going on!

Whoa girlfriend, when you get sick you don't mess around. My family always love when I lose my voice....they are forever asking me questions and then laughing cause I can't answer. Drink plenty of warm fluids and get well soon (it's all Floozie's fault right? ha!)

Well, you certainly did it up right didn't you? And let's see...all three of the other luncheon gals got sick too...but not that bad. I'm the only one who stayed well.

I'm thinking of moving my blog to a free Word Press blog. I've set one up. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Hope you're much better today.

Aha.....that's where I got it! ;) I've decided that it passes through the bloglines!!
