My sore throat is not gone, it is merely migrating. On Saturday, I had a very sore patch on the left side of my throat. On Sunday, my whole throat was sore. Yesterday, it was still both sides, but more up toward the top (it would hurt to close off breathing through my nose). Last night, it got a lot better, and I'd hoped it would be gone by today, but instead the pain has moved down low and I have very scratchy tonsils. And so I am home from work, again, and I think it's entirely possible that I have no sick time left. I shall no doubt get some packing done, but I really just wish my throat didn't hurt.
At least Mucinex works. It can't be coincidence that my ears have unclogged about an hour after taking it each morning, and my stuffy head/sinuses have started to clear. I went through an entire box of Kleenex yesterday.
I have a routine doctor's visit on Friday ("I like to see all my patients back about a month after their first visit," he said, and I've already postponed it once) so if anything's still going on then, I can have it checked out.
