Videos of the weekend will follow at some point when I stop being quarantined.
Why am I quarantined?
Because I came down with Strep Throat at some point early in the morning on Saturday. I managed to pull through for the weekend, but not before I exposed everyone around me to strep.
I know there is a collective groan coming up from the crowd. I feel terrible about it, especially if Robin comes down with it being 36 weeks pregnant. At this point, I am just crossing my fingers that the old adage about your immune system being the strongest it could be when you are pregnant is true.
We had a great weekend, it was so fun to be with Robin and all my favorite girlfriends in one place. I hate that I got so sick because it meant that I missed out on enjoying Windy Gap during one of the prettiest weekends of the year. Yesterday morning, I left camp, came home and then went straight to Urgent Care. I felt terrible, couldn't swallow without severe pain and felt feverish.
Our family practitioner was on duty there (Dr. Robert Fields), thankfully and he did a strep test and it came back positive.
Best part of the weekend? Shot of Penicillian in the butt. That was one of the worst pains I have experienced in a long time. He gave me a prescription for Dog Roids (Prednisone) and I feel so much better today. Of course, Matt is frustrated since this could not have come at a worse time for him with the area's banquet being only a week away.
If you are the praying type, please feel free to lift us up during this time. It's a little tense at our house today...
