sick & icky

I saw my French doctor yesterday for the very first time. He told me I have tonsillitis. (He is so not my favorite person right now. Except, he did give me the drugs. OK, back on the Christmas card list he goes).

I'm cranky, sick, and icky.
(And I look pretty icky too. Sick is not a good look on me)

The Husband has left for work and Fifty is being pretty worthless. I keep asking him to make me tea but he just sits there, staring at me. I'm not impressed.

Fifty, "WHERE IS MY TEA?"
(I can only shout while typing at the moment.)

Nothing.

Maybe I'll call Ruby.


Ruby looks like he could make a nice cup of tea.

  3. Whiskey and Ice Cream....

    Goes down nicely, kills all known germs, cures everything from Tonsillitis to Broken Legs and tastes nice too!

    All the best

  6. Oh you poor possum! Tonsillitis is not fun. I had to get my tonsils out as an adult and I don't recommend it so I really hope the drugs work. Even if Fifty doesn't!! Take care x

  7. You need to train Fifty to be more like Harvey: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmzgkMsf_GQ Although I like this commercial it also makes me sad... Sniff, sniff... I hope you'll get better soon!

  8. I think you need to work harder at training Fifty - what kind of dog is he if he can't even make a cup of tea!

    Whisky is probably a better option anyway - I'm sure he could at least manage to pour you a whisky.

  11. That lazy Fifty! Follow Keith's advice as it can't hurt and you may invent a new milkshake flavor!

    Feel better soon, mon amie!

  12. Hot tea with lemon and bourbon - works every time. You may not BE better, but you will FEEL better. Hope it goes away soon.

  18. Hi Sara, great blog you have here. Sorry to hear you aren't feeling well and that FIfty isn't pulling his weight. You need to send him to St Bernard school in the Alpes so he can pick up one of those little kegs for his collar. You'll still have to make the tea yourself, but at least he can lace it for you.

    Take care, get well!

  19. I know! I tell our kitties all the time to start doing something to earn their keep, like those cats we see on tv! Worthless, I tell you! XX!

  20. I did not know it was possible to get tonsillitis while in France. This does not seem to match the image of perfection I have in my head.

    Hope you feel better soon.

  21. Tu sais, les chiens, ils savent tout faire mais ils ne le disent pas.
    Je vois dans le regard du tiens qu'il peut te faire une tasse de thé si tu lui demandes. Alors, vas-y.
    Bonne soirée et soigne toi bien

  22. French doctors specialize in giving out prescriptions. The more the better. Enjoy them, stock up, but don't let them kill you! Take care of yourself. I'm going with Keith's idea!

  23. Thanks for visiting my blog. I can't believe we were both in Dublin at the same time. I'm super jealous that you're in France now! I wonder if I could convince my husband to move . . . hmmm. Have a great day!

  24. UGHHHHHHH i know the pains of tonsilitis well. i used to be plagued with it all throughout junior high and high school. the burning hot pokers in the throat, tonsils swollen every morning so you can barely even swallow... i do NOT envy you.

    just have tea, jello, and mashed potatoes. <3

  25. Oh no bueno!! Very icky indeed! Hope someone, or dog, gets you something to soothe your throat and tonsils soon! Get better soon Hun!

  26. I hope you feel better soon. Although a snuggle with Ruby looks like it could heal all that ails you! What a love!

    ReplyDelete
  27. So I guess asking the dog to make sure there's plenty of whiskey in the tea is out of the question. Feel better soon, Sara!

  28. Oh, get well soon. Lots of water and more Sex & the City reruns, to make time fly.....
