tonsillitis

I thought I was getting sick on Sunday/Monday, I had a really sore throat but didn't think too much of it. I carried on working, exercising and doing what I do BUT the last two days my right tonsil has been so sore and it is HUGE! SP booked me into a new local doctor this morning (my other doc is all the way over where I used to live and work). I found out I have tonsillitis!

I don't feel too bad, I am a bit tired, have a temperature and my throat (if I don't take drugs) is really sore. So he signed me off work (I could be contagious ), he told me to rest and gave me some antibiotics to fight this nasty little bug.

So I just got a couple of DVDs and am going to lie on the couch and just chill out = doctors orders, not the DVD bit, just the rest bit!

I hope my hubby doesn't get it, it also means I will have to lay off over doing it at the gym for a few days so my body can fight, fight, fight, fight, fight!!

Hope you all have an awesome day. Tomorrow is Australia Day so everyone gets to take the day off work - Yippee!!!! We are having some people over for a BBQ, which should be fun as long as I don't give them all the dreaded lurgy.....

Will let you know how the day goes at the weekend or on Monday, Ta Ta for now

Getting sick can be a great excuse to watch a complete series of 24 or West Wing or the BBC Pride and Prejudice... Enjoy the DVD's.... Can you talk??

Thanks Priscilla, feeling better already.

Kate, I love 24!!!! The new series starts next week, I can't wait. Never watching West Wing but heard it is very addictive, maybe we will start from the beginning one day. P and P = awesome!

Yep, I can talk, phew!!! I mean what would SP do without me being able to talk to him ALL THE TIME?!?!?!? ;)

Drugs = work! Did you get to have Friday off for Aussie Day?

Nixter said...

When do you guys come back to Aus?

Kate P said...

No, didn't get the day off... Celebrating tomorrow with some Aussies... You'll have to email PP to find out when we are coming home... who knows with a man like him!!!

OH, Nix, I'm sorry to hear about your tonsils. Get lots of rest and get better soon. How am I to stay motivated to go to the gym?

(I have been going every day so far, and plan to keep it up. I figure that it is easier to develop a habit if it is every day instead of less than that. Been doing different cardio machines that use my legs and arms, plus my crunches each day too.)

Hey Nixter, did you enjoy 24 last night? I was going to tape it, but was chatting to a friend and completely forgot. That's probably a good thing - I don't need to get hooked on it again!

Nixter said...

I totally loved it Lara and I am so looking forward to watching it again tonight.

I am hooked already :)
