Wednesday though, I had the feeling that a more intrusive visitor had come to say hello after a prolonged absence, but I wasn't ready to throw out the welcome mat and welcome him with open arms.
Thursday morning, it was no use, he demanded my attention and care. So needy. We made a visit to the health clinic and the doc confirmed...strep throat. This is the real deal.
So, I've admitted his presence and we have been getting along fine. Movies, smoothies, and a good dose of antibiotics and I think we're doing quite well, though he's getting the hint that he's beginning to overstay his welcome. Should be out soon!
