Hey we get an extra hour today! I love that.
Well it's a beautiful sunny day so I'm hoping to take Mom and Dad up to Tibidabo. Yesterday we had hoped to do something fun, but unfortunately I was feeling worse, so we went back to urgent care instead. We waited there for a while until I remembered that Kathy had been really sick at the beginning of the year and must know a good doctor. And she did!
Dr. McCarthy offered to see me right away, which was really nice of her. Her practice is in her home, so that makes things easier. She's American and when my mom asked how she ended up here, she said very dryly, "I married a Catalan." Anyway, she doesn't think I have strep throat and said she'd never seen anything like it. She said she thought it was some kind of viral infection. So she gave me some medication to take and that was that. I'm going to have to see another doctor, possibly tomorrow or else after the holiday.
By 8pm I was so tired I could barely stand up so, after Mom and Dad force-fed me things like yogurt and pea soup (I'm really having a hard time swallowing anything right now, even water), I fell asleep. I had to wake up at 4:30 to take more medicine, but other than that I slept straight until 9am. Which was really only 8am... cool! :)
Mom and Dad leave tomorrow morning. I'll be very sad to see them go. They've taken such good care of me this week!
CFS - thanks for calling. :)
