Hi. Hope you're all doing well. I'm still sick with a sore throat, cough, pained head, watery eyes every two minutes, runny / stuffy nose. And now on top of all that, my chest hurts from all the coughing, and I think I may have strep throat, as it feels like somethings stuck in my throat when nothing is. But thankfully I haven't thrown up again - forced or not, and my fever broke about 6 hours ago. I also ate a little today, and got some more sleep this morning. Now to take more medicine and try to get some more rest. And same for the boyfriend, whos doing better than me. Oh and moms birthday plans for tomorrow (11th) are obviously on hold, as I'm not going anywhere like this. I haven't even left my room besides to use the bathroom in the last 48 hours. Ugh. I'm so mad this came at all, but even more that it came when it did to not be able to take her out on her day! . Well goodnight. Sweet dreams.

Aww I know you have been planning for her birthday for awhile now so I understand you being upset but you know what I bet she won't be upset about it at all and will just want to see you better. Strep Throat can damage your heart so if you think you possibly have that go to the doctor! I'm glad the fevers gone but you still sound terrible

I hope you feel better Courtney, and get well fast so you can be back up on your feet! It sucks that we always seem to get sick at the most inopportune times, like when something special is happening, or we want to travel, or attend an event. That just seems to be the way life goes I guess.
