to the streppies in my throat:

i say to ye: die! die! die!

this is a photo of the IV they gave me sunday at the ER. it's my very first IV in my life ever ever! lovely, no?

i have never had strep before so i have nothing to defend myself against it. and this must be a nasty strain anyway because i've been on antibiotics since saturday and it's still very swollen and painful and streppy!

my diet for the last several days has been cheese soup, avocados, bananas, an egg-and-cheese soufflé thing that i made monday and have been eating every night since, applesauce, and sweet potatoes without the skin. i kind of miss chewing but it's painful. as is anything with any acid in it at all, apparently. this is all a new and very fascinating experience for me.
