Code Orange Has Been Lifted

Yes, I filled the script. (Script…I’m street, yo!) 5 pink antibiotic pills ($27.95) and I’m on day 3.

Day 1: Birthday party. Much nose blowing. Much infant waking. Much toddler yelping. Didn’t much notice the colour of snot. Ate cake. Mmmm. Cake.

Day 2: I blew approximately 18 lbs of honey-mustard coloured snot out of my face. In the evening I got another headache and felt quite demoralized by this whole antibiotic thing. Sigh, I thought, I will have to go to Walk In Clinic Hell again on Saturday morning. Both because my newly acquired family doctor does not work weekends or afternoons (this week only) and because that’s the day the pills run out and you don’t want to let your antibiotic course lapse or you’ll get SUPERBUG. I took more ibuprofen and went to bed.

Today: I go to the dentist for the first time in a year. My dentist has five children, just like my old, awesome doctor. Now THAT is a millionaire’s family I’m thinking. My dentist’s children are all two years apart from one another. I instantly stop feeling so sorry for myself and start feeling sorry for my dentist’s wife. Suddenly I start paying attention and notice that I have blown my nose twice today and the snot was yellow. Not lemon yellow or duckling yellow. Just normal, snot yellow. Have wine to celebrate.

Stay tuned! Sinusitis 2008 will continue the rest of this week!
