So my throat has been sore since Friday morning. My wife says that it’s probably just a sore throat and that it will go away. So I tried to shine a flashlight down my throat this afternoon and low and behold what do I see? there are white blotches all over my throat. So now I’m concerned. It could be strep throat, in which case I will need antibiotics or it could be tonsillitis, which is not really treatable. I may have to deal with this pain for several weeks. Ugh, not swallowing makes it difficult to eat and I can’t eat anything basically, it hurts to much. If I had to chose between suffering with a runny nose and headaches from sinus pain and all that or a sore throat, I think I would chose the former rather than the latter. It makes it hard to concentrate on things like taking care of my kids. We are getting ready to go on this big trip back home for a month and it would suck if I have this sore throat thing for the entire time we are on vacation. I will continue with gargling with the salt water and drinking lots of fluids.
So my friend Austin is taking my picture for a portfolio his working on and so I thought that I would take the time to write a blog since I don’t blog hardly ever. Kind of interesting having my photo taken while sitting at my computer and writing. I think that it is cool kind of like I’m in a photo shoot for a new book that is about to be published and Austin in doing the photo layout. Also this is the first chance that I’ve had to actually write something straight out of my head. So what is going on in my brain. Well I’m wondering if I’m going to be shaving my beard off tonight. I will if the Hawks win. If not then I will have to keep it for another two days. Getting hot and humid around here. Just cleaned out Lisa’s car and sweated my butt off.
