Sick Call

Just got in from seeing my doctor, who diagnosed a nasty case of tonsillitis. I feel like hell warmed over, so I'm taking a short blogging break. Hope to have new stuff to post tomorrow night, including reviews of Doubt and I've Loved You So Long.

Comments

Oh, that can be very painful (my son had it last year). Sending you healing thoughts and warm wishes from the forest edge.

Looking forward to reading your reviews.

As a frequent fellow sufferer, here are some surprising folk cures I have tried - some are more helpful than others:
--pickles and olives (or gargling with their juices - more disgusting than just eating them.) The vinegar and salt help kill germs the throat, or something. In a similar vein, salt and vinegar chips.
--alternating popsicles and hot tea
--chili, chicken soup with tobasco and as many fresh herbs - especially thyme, that you can find.
--ginger lemon honey tea
--Airborne gummi lozenges (suprisingly helpful!)
--asking for a special medicinal gargle at the doctors - mine contained liquid benadryl, liquid tylenol, a small amount of both steroids and antibiotics. This is a heavy-duty weapon for throats! Missing this, try a homemade mixture of liquid tylenol, liquid benedryl, and maalox. Surprisingly helpful in the short term, anyway.

Seriously though, get well soon, sweetie!

I still have my little buddies, and I had a bout last year, early on, and I hope you get past it quick.

Hope you feel better soon, Collin! I hear vodka helps. ;) Seriously... lots of fluids, lots of rest. Take care of yourself!
Get well and stay well.

FEEL BETTER SOON! Cold products(ice cream, popsicles) soothe; ginger-tea/lemon heals.
