Carry on luggage

For our trip this last weekend there was one picture I took, but decided not to post because I didn't want to seem like a whiner...
This is what also accompanied us to Skamania Lodge:I have been feeling crummy for about a week and a half now, and it just doesn't seem to be getting any better =(. SO after days upon days of using all of the above items (and varying times, don't worry, I won't OD on Target's knock off Dayquil), I finally bit the bullet today and went to see my doctor. I love her. Today, she is my favorite person!! I know antibiotics are not always the answer, and I try not to run to her every time I sneeze, but this cold/flu has been a doozy! And it just is not getting better. Every time I bent over yesterday, I would instantly get a really severe headache, so I knew that pressure meant a sinus issue. No matter how much would "drain" out, the pressure remained. (and A LOT has been draining! I couldn't believe when they weighed me at her office this morning I hadn't lost any weight, I thought for sure I would have lost at least 5 pounds with all the snot I have produced in the last 11 days!!!! Ew. Sorry. Probably didn't need to share that...)
But today I got an RX for an antibiotic, and for Sudafed....which is no longer OTC here in Oregon. Or was that a federal law? I can't remember, all I know is I am happy to have it.
Here's to the road to health!!!

Hopefully those antibiotics will kick in quickly and you'll be feeling better in no time!

Glad you were able to get good meds from the doctor (and that you found a doctor you love and aren't still having to go to Urgent Care!!!) Hope you feel better soon!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and your nice comment. Since I have been blogging and following blogs I cannot get over how many women, young women are going through infertility. My heart breaks for every single one, noone should have to go through such an emotional time. I have to be careful that it does'nt consume my whole life. Faith and trust in the Lord has been my only hope. My heart goes out to you and your husband, I will be praying for you. I have faith that the Lord will give us the desires of our heart. Thank You again!

I hope you feel better soon, it has been a bad year for sickness. Your weekend getaway pictutes are beautiful!
