Not sure if that was a good weekend or not. I’ve been fighting a cold since last Monday and its really been wearing me down. I know, who gets a cold in the summer, right? Anyway, I got together with a friend on Saturday and we caught the new Star Trek movie. It was great, but by the end I was getting these nasty coughing fits. We went out for dinner afterward and the coughing fits continued. The food was good but by the end of the night I was beat.
When I woke up Sunday morning I slowly realized the left side of my face felt weird. After checking it out in the mirror, I realized that it was inflamed from my left ear all the way down to my chin. It was big and spongy. The longer I poked at it the bigger it got. So, it was off to quick care I went. To rule out some rather nasty possibilities, the Doc ordered some tests. So, it was off to the hospital I went. The tests went fine but took forever. In the end, the doc thinks that it’s a swollen parotid gland and put me on heavy antibiotics. It blew most of my Sunday, but apparently I will live.
Worn out and going to bed… for like a week.
