Is it a bad thing if the first thing he asks after examination is how much sick time I have from work???

He hears some wheezing (after having me cough to clear things out first!)....confirmed the sinus infection and thankfully didn't press on my cheeks - probably would have decked him...haha.....

Got a script for hydrocodone 5 for the pain (took the edge off, from a 7-8 down to maybe a 4), and also augmentin for the infection.

I'm home from work, and spent a short time at a retirement party until my head started to hurt if I moved. Took some hydrocodone and my antibiotic, now off to bed! Managed to work it out so I don't have to go into work until 8pm, then will work a long overnight into Friday.

Hoping to feel better by then!!!!!

Not sure if it is the pain med, or antibiotics kicking in, or both, but I actually bent over this morning! Woo hoo! Have to put my daughter on the school bus, then back to bed for me! Not even going to make coffee!
