After 2 days of a 101 temperature and a throat like sand paper, I took my sick behind to the hospital. I have strep throat... Praise God for penicillin.
Because I had to go to the Hospital on a Saturday I had to use the ER, which was a $100 co-pay. Seriously? $100 to sit down and have my throat swabbed? That's just my part, Lord knows what my Insurance company will be charged!
Luckily my medication was only a $6 co-pay.
I will take comfort in knowing that at least I have medical insurance, at least I have antibiotics, I have help looking after my children while I'm sick and after 24 hours of medication I should start to feel better. There is always a bright side right?
I'm not quite sure where June & July got off to. But I welcome August... I return to work in just over 2 weeks, my kids return to school in just over 3 weeks.
Though I've enjoyed sleeping in, crafting and lots of swimming, I will enjoy returning to a routine. I like structure.
After being away for 3 days & then in bed sick for 3 days I'm behind on my blog reading, I feel like I'm missing out!
For me, reading a blog is like meeting a friend for a cup of tea, it's a catch up of all that's going on in their lives. The blogs I follow bring me comfort.... You know who you are :)
Have a great week friends!
