Guess who got tonsillitis for the second time in a two month span…..that right ME!!! I wake up Easter morning, barley able to breath. Not only was I not able to breath, but I was out of town in Shreveport. But lucky for me I know the drill. I woke Trea up told him to take me to the emergency room. My tonsil have blew up over night. The doctor gave me a not so strong steroid shit and prescribed me penicillin. Now when this happens at home they give me an antibiotic shot and a steroid shot, then prescribe me antibiotics. Well now I see the effects of not getting that shot while at the hospital.
It takes for ever for them to heal with just the meds. I went to my primary doctor two days later (had a physical scheduled anyway) and she told me what I already knew. “Sha-Taria you need to get you tonsils take out ASAP.” Now I’m waiting on the referral. As of today they are back to normal size and I do not have to swallow twice for something to go down….so hey we celebrate our little victories right. Now needless to say she instructed me to let my body rest, and allow the swelling to go down, and give my lovely 100 day challenge a rest. I promised a week 1/2 and now it’s up. I haven’t decided if I will completely start over or just pick up where I left off. I mean it’s my challenge right. It’s not like I took a break because I was lazy, more like for my health. I tend to not let my body heal properly in these instances because I’m so use to getting it. This time was kind of bad though. I developed a head cold, and a nice fever to go with it. I made sure I was well medicated when I went to work, but that really didn’t stop me from coughing in customers ears over the phone lol. The coughs were coming faster than I could put them on mute smh. My boss ended up giving me her bag of cough drops. It was bad, BUTTT now I’m better, and its back to business. I think I’m just going to pick up where I left off I’m not up for starting over.
Now I’m waiting on my referral for a good ENT doctor so I can schedule this surgery ASAP. It’s not fun having you tonsils swell to the point of closing your throat twice in two month span……well at least not for me.
