Last Friday I started to feel kind of blah…like I was coming down with a cold. I’d been taking EmergenC all week, just to be safe, but by Friday I just knew. I skipped the pool after work and went home where I spent the rest of the weekend on the couch or in bed.
On Sunday I went to the doctor to see what’s up. She said it was a viral sinus infection–so basically, a sinus infection that I can’t take antibiotics for. 🙁 That sucked. All weekend long I was taking Zicam, drinking orange juice and EmergenC, and eating chicken noodle soup.
Plus, Neti Pot. FUN TIMES. 🙁 The doctor told me to take sudafed and ibuprofen, rest and use a steroid nose spray for a few days and if I don’t get better, come back. I stressed that I was getting married in a week and CANNOT be sick. Part of me is disappointed it’s not a regular sinus infection that I can just take antibiotics for and be better in a few days.
Today I am feeling better but rundown. I took the day off from work to rest and hopefully this will be over and done with by tomorrow. I work tomorrow and then have Wed-Fri off in preparation for the wedding! While I was sick I worked on some of the DIY crafts I had to finish–folding the wedding programs, making the menus and placecards. I’m almost done but the rest of it can wait until later this week when my family comes to visit.
All weekend I’ve been rotating between the bed, the couch and the office when I needed to sit upright. I started watching Revenge–a totally terrible soap opera show but I keep watching it so…I guess it’s good… 😉 I’m now on Season 3. Honestly, I’m looking forward to getting out of the house, going back to work tomorrow and taking a break from the TV! I’ve also haven’t worked out in 5 days and I am starting to feel restless and anxious. That must mean I am on the mend! Because on Sunday the idea of getting out of bed at all sounded like such a struggle.
Also, I need a break from obsessively checking the weather. In the last week the weather for the wedding day has changed half a dozen times…swinging between regular, nice fall weather to thunderstorms to pouring rain to now 90 degrees. 🙂 All I care about is just no rain.
Anyways, so that’s my weekend and wish me luck that I will beat this cold before the weekend!
