From my previous post, I mentioned about Jared's throat illness HERPANGINA. And apparently, it hit me too! Actually, as I write this post, I'm still on Sick Leave (SL) since Thursday, Feb. 9. I'm not yet totally well...Aarrrghhh...I'm still in pain...big time!!! though no more fever and headache. I was donw Wednesday evening, Feb. 8 coming from a whole day client meetings from Makati-Manila-Makati. I was not well at all in the afternoon of Feb. 8 and already suffering from a headache. I thought, It was just from the long drive from Manila and how Kuya Jack, (our company driver) drives the car. Kuya Jack has a reputation of getting his passengers dizzy but the good thing about him is, you'll never get late on meetings because he let the car fly and swerves like a crazy snake. Anyways, back to my kwento...I came home late Feb. 8 from a dinner meeting with my client at Conways, Makati Shangrila chilling excessively. I thought, the room was just cold, the hotel lobby was cold,the hotel ladies room was cold and even the cab I took was cold but apparently...I'm chilling big time because I was already burning with fever.
The following day, Feb. 9, I was still able to go to the doctor at Healthway, Market Market and saw an ENT doctor. By the way, I must share with you that he is indeed handsome and yummy!!! hahaha!! Kung di lang malamlam mga mata ko, malamang nahalata ni doc. na crush ko sya! hehehe...Well, he has a manly body, a good height of about 5'10" or more, handsome face, and gentle voice. Basta, gwapo sya!. Anyways, to cut the story short, I was sick because of several reasons...my throat illness + rhinosinusitis. I was given a couple of medicines to take. But since I was nursing, the medication to lessen the soreness or blisters on my mouth was taken out from the list because according to Doc. Henry C. it will give Jared hyperacidity. So the mommy in me has to take the sacrifices. Oh, good Lord, I am really in excruciating pain for days until now. I can't eat much. I can't talk much. I can't drink much and I can't even swallow my own saliva. I remember Jared drooling so much when he was ill with Herpangina.
In the absence of the Mefanamic - an anti-inflamatory drug, I tried gargling hot water + salt, Bactidol and now I'm using Betadine Gargle. Among the 3, Betadine gives me a more soothing relief because of its mint flavor and cool effect. However, this only gives me minutes of less pain and afterwhich, i'm back to hell-throat-feeling. Waaaahhh!!!
I admit, this is the worst throat illness I ever had in my entire life. I am now thinking and considering to have a tonsillectomy - a surgical procedure in which the tonsils are removed. Hayyy....I just want to get over this. I hope the antibiotics I'm taking now really kicks in.
To catch up with my love-related photo journal post, I'm putting the ff. pictures altogether. :-)
