I literally slept ALL day and ALL night last Wed/Thurs/Fri, took a 2 hr nap on Saturday, and slept 4 hours during the day on Monday. And yet, I'm still sick. This sucks. I started antibiotics last Wednesday, felt slightly better but not great over the weekend, and then started getting worse again on Monday. Back to the doctor yesterday, where my rapid strep test was now negative, but I have blisters in my throat. She thinks it's now a viral infection with stomatitis (the blisters) and possibly thrush. Yeah, good times. I'm so tired of my throat hurting. She sent out a culture, but like I said, it's probably viral. I have a nasty steroid paste to put on the blisters that makes me gag, and percocet to help me sleep. I am so. over. this.
In other news, I had my first shift on my own last night, and I really didn't need to be nervous about it. They only give us two couplets for the first week, and they were really pretty easy couplets. Vaginal deliveries, both bottle feeding. I seriously felt kind of guilty at times because I was just sitting around with nothing to do. All my assessments and charting were done, both babies were fed, moms were sleeping...I guess I shouldn't complain because I'm sure my time for crazy work shifts is coming!
XFIL and XSMIL have been in town this week, and it's been good, but a little crazy. Especially with me not feeling the best and working. They kept DS at the hotel last night while I was at work, so that was cool. DS has been having so much fun with them (especially grandpa), but tonight is the first night he's been in bed close to on time all week. He is so tired. They leave tomorrow, so we'll be back to normal, hopefully!
Tomorrow: really hoping my throat is feeling a bit better so I can maybe get a run in.
