...since my last dose of Cipro, and I might have to start it up again. Darn, adorable, gross kindergarteners spreading their germs! :) It was bound to happen sooner or later, so I'm not surprised.
Last post I shared about my flu shot, and I'm happy to report that I didn't have any kind of reaction to it which I was happy about. But around Tuesday/Wednesday I was having a ton of post nasal drip and the back of my throat was getting very sore. I couldn't tell if it was just allergies or if it was the start of a cold, so I just tried to get as much of it out as possible. Then yesterday it started to work its way into my sinuses and today I've been sneezing and blowing my nose all day - I've also got a lot of sinus pressure.
This morning I decided to email my doctor and nurse to see if they could call in a 14 script for Cipro because I wanted to catch this before it went into my chest and became any worse. Well, I just got off the phone with my doctor a little bit ago, and she thinks that it could possibly be viral (since that seems to be going around right now) -- which means the Cipro really wouldn't do much. So I'm going to wait it out over the next day or two to see if it gets any worse or starts to move into my chest. If it does, she wants me to start my two weeks of Cipro and also to pair it with a month of Tobi. She also told me to increase my airway clearance to 3-4 times a day to try to get rid of whatever it is...ugh!
I know I've been so complaint with my treatments over the past year, but I hate increasing my treatments! I'm really good about getting in my treatments twice a day, but that doesn't mean I enjoy doing them or that I don't ever stall to do them each day. So now that I have to do three-four a day, that just drives me crazy. But I'm going to do my best to try to keep up with the extra treatments, especially because I have a three day weekend so I should have the time. I'd love to kick this cold or whatever it is out of my body without having to go on Cipro because I don't want to build up any resistance to it. I used to go on Cipro maybe once a year, and this would be my third dose this year, so lets hope I can get rid of it on my own with increased treatments. :-)
