Sick

Been sick since we got  home from the Everglades and it ain't been pretty.  Two visits to the Urgent Care Center because my Doctor couldn't fit me in, antibiotics started, steroid shot on second visit to speed up the progress and today I finally get into see my Doctor.  I'm better, but I'm a long way from well.  My throat has been so sore I have been unable to eat solid food since the weekend, all my glands are swollen, my ears are a misery and eating makes me choke.  Are we having fun yet?
Mac was sick too, but never as bad and is now well on the way to recovery.
I blame it on the fact we sat on an unhealthy airplane for nearly and hour  and a half waiting to be cleared for take off in Miami  because there'd been rain.  It rains all the time in Florida, haven't they figured out how to fly in it yet?  The air was stale on the plane  and everyone was coughing.
No more flights during flu season, we'll drive next time.

  1. It's bad enough contracting misery as knowing where. Adding insult to injury.

  8. I often find that following air travel I go down with a wretched sore throat. The problem with planes is that the air is continuously recycled, so it passes through everyone time and time again. They are not really supposed to do this, but apparently it saves them lots of fuel. Hope you soon recover.

  9. I was sick like this within a few days after our flight back from England in September.
    I had to go back a SECOND time to the doctor for another round of antibiotics and steroids. Like you, I blame the germs on the plane. Hope you are better now.
