- My lymph node is still huge and still hurts. As the doctor I saw put it: "Yeah, that's a big lymph node. Gosh, that's the size of a golf ball! That can't be normal... [then scribble something down]... it could be scrofula! You know, where you have TB in your lymph node. That'd be cool." Cool, yes, if it weren't happening to me and it weren't one of the most painful things I have ever felt.
- I've got a fever! Yeah, how does one get a fever after being on big gun antibiotics for nearly two weeks? Clearly, can't be good. Nonetheless, I'm on Tylenol around the clock.
- And a rash to boot. Turns out I'm allergic to the big gun antibiotics that I've been getting, with proof in the pudding - the pudding being my skin mottled with a nice rash.
Fortunately, I do have my spiked Tylenol and my dad has some Vicodin to help me sleep at night. Thank god for pain medicine.
Oh, did I mention that the CREOGs are this week? For those not medically-inclined (I can't blame you), CREOGs are the in-service exam for Ob/Gyn residents - basically like a yearly SAT to see how you compare to everyone else in the country. Let's hope my fever stops by then.
