Another update.

Turns out my nasty little bug is acute follicular tonsillitis, a rather aggressive form of tonsillitis.
The good news is that my treatment is going well and I'm feeling 1000% better than I was yesterday morning.

We will be continuing the IV antibiotics for another couple of days, but all my other meds are oral now. My new IV cannula is in place, no thanks to the doctor who butchered the vein in my wrist before deciding to try again on a vein in the back of my hand, and it appears to be working just fine. Hopefully it will come out on Thursday.

As for my birthday tomorrow, I will be having a nice little Thai picnic on my front lawn with my mum and a few friends and if I'm lucky I might even get some birthday cake!! Yay!!! I think it will be an occasion to bust out the island dress!!!

Addendum - 11pm: Spoke with my beautiful boy in Vanuatu this evening. I feel even better after hearing his voice and knowing that he misses me just as much as I miss him. He's very upset that I'm sick and he can't be here with me but he's very glad that I can still have a conversation with him in fluent Bislama. He was worried that I'd forget the language that I've tried so hard to learn. It feels like it's been weeks and months since we last saw each other, not just one week. I can't wait to go back. I feel so loved up. :o)

Happy Birthday! It's no fun being sick on your birthday. Our birthdays are only two days apart. Of course, you are much younger looking.
