Let's Play Jeopardy!

Ok - so the answer is "WOW"

Do you know what the question is? I'll give you a hint - I was at Urgent Care.

Well - the question is: What do you NOT want to hear your doctor say when he looks in your throat.

My throat started getting worse again this weekend, so I headed to the Urgent Care after church. And yes, that is really what the doctor said while he was looking in my mouth.

I guess I have a VERY infected, enlarged, red, etc. right tonsil. It's practically cutting off my windpipe. He said if it was a little worse he would have sent me straight to the emergency room to have emergency SURGERY to have it drained!!! YUCK and YUCK.

So, I now have a heavy antibiotic, Diflucan for what will happen to me after the antibiotic, and Vicatin. :)

I literally can't swallow without this horrible stabbing pain. It's not fun.

So, it's all kind of fun in our house.
