Still allive...but barely!

Seriously....I cannot remember the last time I felt this sick! I started not feeling well Saturday night and by Sunday morning was completely miserable and very, very sick. I diagnosed myself with strep throat, along with a fever. Every joint in my body ached....you know the achiness when it even hurts to lay your head on the pillow?? I spent all day Sunday and Monday in bed, except to have Chris take me to the doctor on Monday afternoon. I do have strep throat (which was confirmed by the lovely swab they stuck into my very sore and swollen throat - YUCK!). He gave me a penicillin shot in my hip, a prescription for tylenol with codeine (GOOD stuff other than the nasty taste...which makes me gag...I'm such a good patient), and recommended not going back to school until Thursday. He also mentioned that this is my 3rd bout with strep throat in 2 years. If I were to have 3 episodes in 1 year, they would recommend having my tonsils removed. YUCK! My throat was totally swollen shut, which has made eating, drinking, talking and breathing very difficult (just ask Chris...he's been doing all my talking for me and has put up with some impressive snoring the past few nights!). I have been surviving on jello and ice - and even that hurts to swallow. Luckily the fever and achiness is gone now. My throat is still swollen and sore, but it seems to be getting better (either that or the tylenol with codeine has me fooled). Unfortunately I still have zero energy. Seriously, I take a shower and then have to take a nap! In fact, this is the first time since Saturday morning that I've even been on the computer (See...I told you I was SICK!).

So...Mia photos will be coming when I have a little more energy. Brenda and Jill - your photo CDs are coming very soon. I promise they will go out as soon as I'm feeling better. Brenda - tell your friends that their photos are coming soon, too. I feel so bad making them wait!

I was wondering what happened to you! Can i just say SORRY!!! You obviously picked that up from me since I had it right after you left and it is miserable! Did you have that ridiculous headache? I was miserable and finally feel better this week.

Amy- John had his tonsils removed last year. It is a miserable surgery when you are an adult, but he is so glad he did. He never gets sore throats anymore! Just something to think about if you do get them alot. Hope you feel better soon and I love all of the pictures. I especially love all of the bluebonnet pictures! Vickie

Ok, I'll forgive your lack of Mia pix. Hope you're feeling better, and don't ask Kyle how his surgery went.

I am so glad you are beginning to get better! I hate having strep throat and begin achy. I hope you heal quickly and feel lots better for this weekend so you can enjoy the B-E-A-utiful Weather!

Are you feeling better today? I'm glad this strep thing skipped over me somehow!

So sorry that you were sick! Hope it skips Becca! We heard that Jacob was sick too. Were Jenna and Chris good doctors and nurses?
Love,
Aunt CC

1 more thing. We all know about your photography, so evidently your sisters just let you take all the pix while you were there, cuz there hasn't been a new blog from either of them since. I'm just saying...
