I got a call on my cellphone around 5:30 p.m. telling me that I do not have strep. But the doc recommended I continue to take the antibiotics because it’ll kill whatever bacteria is causing my tonsils to be swollen and my ears to be mildly infected (they, along with my ears, hurt whenever I swallow).
My throat felt fine throughout most of the day, but by the time I got home from work I started coughing a lot and now my throat is really hurting. I gargled with some saltwater and took my meds, but I fear tonight will be another restless night for me. Which sucks. Because last night? Pretty miserable.
