Day 175: Nodes

On Sunday my left lymphnode became noticeably swollen.  It spent the next few days getting larger and larger, and more painful.  Of course, like any self-respecting natural worrier, I spent a lot of time running through the worst-case scenario. 

Today I sat in the doctor's office and he ran through the different things it could be.  At the beginning of the list was simple strep throat - something I would have never thought of since I didn't even have a sore throat.  The first test he did was a strep test. 

It was strep.  After hearing the list of possibilities, combined with my own manufactured list, all I could think was "I'm so happy it's strep."

Today I am thankful I just have strep throat.

I never thought I'd say that.
