Oh, today SUCKS!
My head cold has moved up to my sinuses, and settled in. I went to see my doctor this morning and, whilst it's probably not strep throat (which I think translates to tonsillitis, but I'm not sure), she is having some tests run on a throat swab; on the other hand my sinuses are very inflamed, so I'm feeling pretty sorry for myself.
Doc C had been getting some twinges in his back, which really started to centralise around his kidney today. He went to see his doctor this afternoon (whilst I was at back in bed with lots of water and my loyal cat nurses), and they found blood in his urine. This means he has another damn kidney stone. He was given a long lasting pain killer injection whilst he was there, and a prescription for some more in pill form. All he can do now is drink a LOT of water, and hope it passes without being too excruciating. So basically we are just hoping he doesn't end up curled upon the floor in the fetal position in the next few days. Yay.
So last weekend we were living it up in Vegas, and this weekend we are probably going to be housebound in a make-shift cottage hospital monitoring each others' symptoms. sigh.
