It's strange times indeed when I am relieved and gratified to have strep throat.
Yesterday morning I started running a fever and getting a sore throat. By last night I had what felt like a golf ball in my throat and was sucking down tylenol to keep the fever under 101.
I went to the doctor today. Of course I got tested for corona, fever and sore throat fit in with that, but I also tested positive for strep bacteria in my tonsils. So I have tonsilitis rather than Covid, which is a relief.
It's also killed my plans, but what can you do? losing 2 days rather than 2 weeks is a victory.
