On Saturday, for the first time since September, I did something that wasn't for Brownies & wasn't a medical appointment.
The #catdoctor turned out to be almost alarmingly #prescient though: I pretty much slept Saturday night > Wednesday morning (I fed the #cats twice a day, took my #medication twice a day, drank in vague patches of awakened, & ate once a day [yes, #oops]) & have been doing some serious #napping since. I try not to think about the hows&whys of a #sinusinfection no longer meaning a blocked nose - unexpected bonus of the #njtube year, certainly, but... ick... Sadly #sinusitis hasn't stopped being v painful; & with the accompanying #throatinfection I've been, er, enjoying, the creation of my own tropical microclimate. I've always run a #fever easily (despite a low body temperature when I'm what passes for well) & still haven't grown out of having #hallucinations 🤒 desperately hoping to avoid yet another course of #antibiotics: I have my trusty #coamoxiclav here at home, of course, but if I can keep the #lurgy from my #lungs then (unless a #GP [or worse, #accidentandemergency doctor, would REALLY prefer to avoid any unplanned #hospital trips...] says I've to take them) I shall Cope. (Which yes, does involve ignoring all the guidance which is extremely clear about the fact I should have been referred to an #earnosethroat specialist. I feel I have quite enough medics to chase about things without adding #ent to the list. And yes, that is a totally sensible & responsible approach. Uh-huh.
Anyway, what was it that broke me completely? An 11th birthday treat. I got to see "Paddington 2"; I visited an ice-cream parlour (where I had a fruit smoothie); I was fed a superyummy tea of noodles & vegetables; I had a #feline #fashionshow produced in my honour; I named one of the stars thereof as a name was proving elusive & it was VITAL that cuddly twin best-friend cats had Perfect Names (#nopressure); I'd some v serious & in-depth discussions about "My Little Pony"; & provided plenty of hugs. Plus I got to hang out with the birthday girl's parents, who're both fab (her mummy is my actual friend though!)
