Somehow I have come down with a STRANGE infection. Friday evening my eye started to swell shut, weep and itch. I immediately thought it was a case of pink eye. But when I woke up Saturday not only was my left eye swollen shut, but a small sore I had, had on the left side of my forehead had become infected and grown in size considerably. Next came the chills and achiness, followed by a sore throat. And if I didn't look odd enough with the swollen eye, Sunday evening my lower lip cracked from dryness and by Monday morning it was swollen to double its size with a nasty looking sore.
I look like someone beat me up. My face is quite distorted right now. I won't show pictures because it is a bit gruesome!
I went to the doctor yesterday. He swabbed my throat, said it might be strep. Gave me a prescription and sent me on my way. Now I am waiting to see what the culture says. Today my throat does feel some better and at the present I am not running a fever. However, my face is not healing quite as quickly as I had hoped. It stills looks pretty yucky and I haven't seen any improvement in my eye or lip.
I am missing reading all of your great Christmas posts. Right now I would really like a lap top! So, please don't feel I am neglecting you! I just don't feel up to sitting at my desk as of yet.
Anyway if I am absent from commenting on your posts for a couple of more days you will know why!
