That might be a slight exaggeration, but I feel like this I’ve been living in doctor’s offices between strep, mono tests and a follow-up appointment for my foot. Despite the fact I spent a heck of a lot of time sitting around in waiting rooms, it’s been all good news!
- antibiotics for strep.
- no mono.
- PRN on the foot!!
I’m cleared and encouraged to do absolutely anything I feel like I can handle on my foot. I had a feeling this is how it would turn out today. I was confident, so confident that I actually walked into a foot and ankle surgeon’s office wearing a pair of heels. I contemplated changing my shoes before I went to the visit, but then I figured they don’t hurt, I’m not sore, so I’ve got nothing to hide. I didn’t feel like I was doing anything wrong. I was just showing the doctor how awesome of a job he did.
I managed to get some shopping in at Urban Outfitters before the appointment. Urban Outfitters was having an awesome sale. Take an additional 50 percent all sale merchandise. I managed to get a purse and two shirts for just $20. Not a bad deal at all! Plus, lunch at the Pita Pit taking advantage of a Groupon I had purchased months ago.
Now it’s off to do some more ice skating. I am so much more comfortable with the idea of ice skating since I no longer have any more follow up appointments for my foot…unless of course I have a problem and feel the need to make one.

How was everyone’s Christmas? Mine was great expect for the horrible cold (what I thought was a cold) I had. My parents (“santa”) were overly generous on the presents (Kindle Fire, blender, clothes, purses, boots, cookbooks, home decor, etc..) I must have been good this year! The food looked amazing (I couldn’t actually swallow food to eat most of it) and dessert looked great too (I still managed to sneak in some cookies). It is very hard to resist cookies no matter how sick you are.
After doing virtually nothing but coughing and attempting to work yesterday, I finally caved in and went to the doctor’s. I avoid doctor’s at all costs. I have nothing against doctors, all my doctors are awesome, but unfortunately the only doctors I seem to see on a regular basis are orthopaedic doctors. I’m extremely accident prone.
It only took me 26 years to develop strep throat for the first time and it is awful. I’m waiting on the results of a mono test now, hopefully that one comes back negative. But for not I’m chilling with my medications, a box of Kleenex and attempting to do my work. I just figured out what I miss most about holding a full-time job opposed to freelancing, sick days! I could really use a sick day right about now!
