Boring update

Didn't that title just pull you right in? I should be in journalism or something.

The truth is, this is boring. I'm still sick. The Amm.oxicillin is not working as well as I had hoped. I still have the sinus headache. I still can't breathe through my nose, especially when I sleep, which means waking up every. single. day. for a week and a half straight with my mouth so dry that it feels like it's cracking inside. (I'm thinking the Ammox. might be dehydrating me too, because I've been craving water like a camel.)

Called this morning and left a message with my PCP that I'm still sick, so she called in a prescription for Zithr.omax. Hopefully THIS one will work! D is feeling much better, which is awesome, however he now has waaaaaaay more energy than I do again, which makes spending the day with him very tiring! (Still glad he's not sick anymore, though.)

I have an OB appointment this week, and I don't have an ultrasound scheduled at this one. It's kind of strange. It's the very first time that I will go to the office and NOT have an u/s and I'm sort of wondering what the heck we're going to do! Of course, I remember many appointments with D when my OB just used the doppler to check on D, so I assume that this OB will do the same, but this feels like a very "run of the mill pregnancy" kind of thing to do... An appointment with no pictures? How novel!

No post is a boring post!

Sorry to hear the Penicillin is causing you trouble. Dry mouth is a common side effect. I hope a different prescription makes a positive difference.

Boring is good! You've had enough excitement for a lifetime. I'm sorry you are still sick and hope that new meds work better.

Try sucking on ice and using cold compresses on your eyes. It really brings down the swelling inside your sinuses and lets everything drain better and feel better. Ibuprofen also helps with the swelling if your Dr. will allow it.

Not a boring post at all. I prefer the 'no news is good news' posts.

I'm so sorry to hear that you're still sick. We all ended up taking Zithromax too.

I hope you get to feeling better really soon!
