Staph Infection
      #178875 - 03/08/06 02:40 AM

I went to the doctor on Thursday because my throat was hurting and my kids were all sick with strep. I went to the doctor today to get cleared to go back to work and he told me that it wasn't strep it was a staph infection in my throat!!! I was already put on antibiotics, but I was still a little shocked and sad at the same time. Had I not gone to the doctor, it could have been really bad. Definitely a wake up call to be vigilant in taking care of me. It may mean making adjustments with my kids and ex-hubby (he knows), but I have to be around for my kids.

Moonstar... I am glad you have it diagnosed... Its really hard to put yourself in a giant balloon.. Tried this at work to avoid people coughing on me. It was a real pain putting my fingers through that small hole to gain access to my PC.. Then I would always loose air pressure. Helium is definately right out because it makes you sound weird. I dont like being called bubble boy either...

I hope you are taking very easy... Antibiotics will clear it, over time... Uusally 10 days of continious treatment.. Hope you are feeling ok..

Love
