Was getting the big stubborn dork to admit that he's sick
and agree to go to the doctor.
Both things happened this morning.
Why, oh, why do these things always happen on class days? I'm all crampy too (like, the 3rd month in a row that Teh Girlbits have rebelled on a Thursday), so this has been a super uber fun day.
Basically, Tora has been averaging about 2-3 hours a sleep a night, because he's coughing so much. He was supposed to go back to work on Wednesday, but ended up staying home yesterday and today -- and will be home tomorrow, too. Because -- wait for it -- he has either bronchitis or walking pneumonia (impossible to tell which for sure without doing a chest x-ray). The doc is treating him for walking pneumonia, just to be on the safe side. So he's now presently doped up on god only knows what -- Avalox and... something else. Oh, and he got his first Albuterol inhaler.
The good thing is that Tora is the type of guy who will only go to the doctor when something is seriously
wrong. The last time he went, he was in high school. Basically, he doesn't get sick -- I mean, aside from the occasional cold here or there. So the antibiotics the doc prescribed him will probably kick the snot out of his sickness (no pun intended), because he doesn't get antibiotics very often.
Unfortunately, because I missed class last week, and because we only have, like, two or three class meetings left, I have
to go to class tonight. HAVE TO. So I can't sit with him and dote on him like I normally would. (No, really -- I totally would.)
I liked the doc that he saw, though. My normal GP couldn't fit him in today or tomorrow, so we made an appointment with R&C's GP. I liked him so much, I'm considering changing once the insurance stuff goes through. (Holy cow, I'm going to have insurance.
Long story short -- Tora's sick, Bunneh's crampy, and there's still
Finance class tonight.
The good news? I finally broke down and bought American Gods
(though I came THISCLOSE to buying the new hardcover edition of Good Omens
, except that the only copy B&N had left was the Aziraphale cover, and I totally want the Crowley cover), and plan to start it either tonight or tomorrow, because when more than one person tells me I need
to read something, I typically find that I wish I'd listened to the masses earlier. mephistophela
, I'm looking at you. You too, everstar3
. And YOU, mscongeniality
. (You've all rec'd
Gaiman to me at one time or another. It's time for me to start slogging through the rest of his stuff.)
*sigh* Time to leave for class. The plan is to leave early, stop at Starbucks, and get there early to meet with one of my group members so we can
bitch about the idiot group member we weren't able to ditch from the first Finance class
make sure we're on the same page with everything.
