Yes, can you believe it? I've been coughing and hacking now for over a week. One of my students ended up in the hospital and another one coughed all day in class on Tuesday...sigh...so, of course, I ended up with bronchitis and I sounded like a frog! So, finally hubby insisted that I drive to urgent care and get some antibiotics. So, off we went on Thanksgiving Day. I was afraid that the waiting room would be full, but it was empty. I was given a different antibiotic from my previous one (I previously had a Z-pack). This time I got augmentin, which has an additional ingredient to make it more quickly assimiliated by one's body. Unfortunately, that added ingredient made me sick to my stomach and I can't tolerate it! ACK! So, I'll have to call back to urgent care and get another antibiotic. I have parent conferences next week and I'll need my voice back by Tuesday, so I have to get this done today!!! I'm really frustrated because this time, I never even got a cold. I had a slight tickle in my throat and then instantly began to cough and cough. I am just recovering from my previous bout of bronchitis and it seems like I've been sick most of this fall. Oye vei!
