on sinus infections

Let's see somewhere over Memorial Day weekend I had a cold.  I thought that by Wednesday I was getting better. At about 11:00 am on Thursday, June 1st, during Ryan's gymnastics class I decided the cold had gotten worse.  Basically, I have been to the doctor's office 3 times and have a prescription nasal spray and 2 antibiotics plus Sudafed, Mucinex and tylenol with codeine.  Yes, it was awful.  Yes, I'm so glad to be in the land of the living again.

Just this Monday when by the evening things were getting better, I tried a Neti Pot.  So ridiculous but I'm thinking it did some good too.  I don't want go into the details but it's basically a nasal rinse flushing thing.  Amazing what the body can store up in there.
On the other side of this whole craziness is the fact that I am taking an antibiotic now that according to the nurse practitioner will "kill all of the bacteria in my body."  Hooray and boo.  While I'm not the biggest worrier out there I am ingesting a good helping of yogurt everyday for the next couple of weeks just to make sure.

My mom calls this the year of the plague... I would agree and it has been sent from Satan himself.
