Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 5 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, January 2015. That's Scout in the arena.

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!
