Yesterday was just crappy. I slept for about 12 hours and then went to Statics at 11 and Calc III at 12. I finally gave in and I ditched Physics Studio and to go to the Student Health Center to see what they could give me. The nurse who was examining me said that she though more people on campus were sick than healthy. She game me both a 5 minute quick strep test and a regular strep culture. The quick test showed that I don’t have strep, which is good because it usually gives false positives, not false negatives. The regular culture will be ready by Monday and the Health Center will email me if it’s positive.
In the mean time, they gave me some Tylenol and cough drops with Benzocaine, a mild oral anesthetic. This morning I was running a nice temp at 101.4. By noon, I was down to 99.7.0
