I'm still here....

I know you all were probably wondering where I've been the last couple days, so I thought I would post real quick and let you know I was still alive. :) I did get kind of sick again Wednesday and was pretty icky on Thursday so I bit the bullet and decided some medicinal intervention was needed other than the OTC Tylenol for Sinus. I wanted to just call the doctor and have them order me an antibiotic since I knew I had a sinus infection, but NOOOO they couldn't do that... I'd have to go in for them to prescribe me something. So after an exhausting day of shopping with the sistas (fyi...not a good idea when you don't feel that great) Holli drove me to the doctor's office. I sat in the waiting room for 10 minutes only to be back in the exam room 5 minutes. This is including the nurse obtaining my vital signs and writing down my symptoms, me waiting for the Nurse Practioner to come, the NP actually coming in and assessing me, us chatting for a minute, her telling me I had sinusitis (which I already knew) and then me leaving. FIVE MINUTES!!!! Seriously?!?!? She ordered me some Augmentin and told me to get like 20 other over-the-counter meds and sent me on my way. It took me longer to get to the office than it did for my visit. Cost me more too...yikes! Oh well....I'm on the road to revocery now. I have two days worth of antibiotics in my system and I'm sort of starting to feel like a real person again. Hopefully I'm in tip-top shape by Tuesday for clinical. I do NOT want to have another repeat of last week.

So, yea....that's pretty much what I've been up to. I had study group this afternoon and then small group right after that. Oh, I also went out to eat with a bunch of people from church after morning service. We went to Chili's. Yum! I think we all pretty much got sick off of the chips before we got our meals though. :) Our waitress was a funny little southerner. She kept things entertaining and she was very good with refilling our drinks and getting us things. Our lunch was also paid for by an "anonymous" person. Isn't that nice?? It's so nice to when people do random things like that.

OK, I really should be getting to bed, because sick people need their sleep and I have a test in the morning. One last thing..... Shout out to my sis Lisa on her 27th Birthday!! HOLLA!!!!! Love ya!

Until...............................
