Enjoy the silence...

Every man's dream has officially come true for Denis. I've totally and completely lost my voice. I can force a slight whisper but that doesn't last long and it's pretty painful so I try to stick with typing messages...

I went to Urgent Care tonight and it turns out I have an upper respiratory infection. By the sounds of it I'm going to get worse before I get better. I'm in so much pain and can barely swallow. The doc says my ears and throat are quite swollen and I can expect this sore throat to carry on for a few days followed by a week or so of coughing. Good times, good times. Just before Christmas. Lovely.

And the hardest part it the only thing he could give me was pain meds. So I'm on Tylenol 2 every four hours just to get through it.

And rest. Lots and lots of rest and fluids.

Lucky me I have the hotest nurse out there and he's taking such great care of me! He just went out to get me a humidifier and a milkshake (my best friends right now)...

I wish I had something more exciting to report...

Take the biggest glass/cup you have and fill it with as much ice as you can. Top it off with water and, every 5 mins or so, take a sip. It will help keep your throat lubricated and it should irritate less. No syrups or caugh drops. They help in the moment but ultimately make it worse because the sugars (which they are full of) dry out your throad and further irritate it.

Feel better soon
