Went to visit my mom down in SC this weekend. Started getting a scratchy throat on Wednesday, which turned into a very sore throat by friday with blister like lesions forming up both sides of my tongue. Apparently there was a lesion on the back of my throat causing the discomfort. I couldn't take anymore so I went to urgent care on Sunday morning tested negative for strep, and negative for viral. Said it was likely bacterial. I was expecting her to prescribe an antibiotic, but instead she prescribed Prednisone which I thought odd, but it seems to be working. I feel better today.

Drove home dosing with Cloraseptic spray, (still better than driving home from Florida with the flu..). I've been eating mashed potatoes, jello and pudding for the last couple days. Today I ate some ham without much pain. Hopefully I'm on the upswing.

BC, I hope you feel better soon. Will you be going to see your own doctor?

Z, did you ever find out what was going on with your bank account?

If I'm not all cleared up soon, I'll definitely go see my doctor. I have no idea what the bill is going to look like from the urgent care in SC, even with insurance! I'll still have a bill with insurance if I go to my doctor. I pay out of pocket until I reach my deductible of $1250 then 20%, excluding vaccinations, physicals and other minor routine things.

I've never had anything like this in my life, kinda freaked me out a bit.

Hope you feel better soon, bakechef. Nothing worse in the summer than being sick. Did the doctor say anything about "thrush"? Himself had that ages ago. Took about two weeks to clear up, but meds were more primitive in the 1980s. Whatever it is, get well.

Are you a subscriber to that service? If not, don't call back.

If you ask me to travel two hours to where you live and do a dinner party for you, please give me more than a days notice before you CANCEL ON ME!!!

I'm full of rage. Everything is packed. Hours of work, planning, list making, shopping, money spent, etc. Gone. For nothing.

He's a relative, so there's not much I can do except silently simmer over here.

That's awful, Nickee. You can ask for reimbursement. You shouldn't have to pay for that.

That was truly inconsiderate of your relative.

If it were me, I would use a text editor to compose an email (not an email program, where it could accidentally get sent before I was ready). Then I would wait until I was calm and not nearly so angry. I would work on it. I would try to explain about the wasted time and money. Then I would set it aside. I would look it over again later and maybe edit it some more. I have learned not to respond too quickly when I get annoyed/angered/upset. This is obviously a relative that you like well enough to do this for.
