Well I got sick of being sick, so I decided to head to the doctor. She said it looks like strep, but the “rapid strep test” was negative & they’re sending out the other test to the lab – thus the title that we’re “temporarily inconclusive”.
BUT because of the Memorial Holiday, the office is closed Friday & Monday which means no results until T-U-E-S-D-A-Y! As in one week from today!!!! She gave me a perspcription for some medicine just in case I start getting a fever or considerably worse, but she’d prefer I stay off as long as possible in case it’s not strep!
So what in the world does that mean!?!?! Basically (as I thought), for now anyways, I paid $25 to be told I have a sore throat – UGH!!!
The silver lining …
ME: “So what do I do between now & then?”
Doc: “Continue with your salt water, cough drops & sprays … and you have my permission to drink as many Smoothies & Shakes as you want because they’ll be little icepacks for your throat”
That was almost worth the $25 right there!
