[personal] To the doctor with this damned cold

The New Zealand death cold's occupation of my body has now gone on for fourteen days. I've had bouts of influenza that were less disruptive than this damned cold. I am feeling somewhat better today, but definitely continue ill.

I have made a doctor's appointment for this morning because the lymph node on the left side of my throat has been swollen and painful since Tuesday. I normally associate that feeling with the onset of an infection, not the end of one. This in turn has led me to wonder if I have picked up an opportunistic or secondary infection. The only other time in my life I had a cold anywhere near this bad, I had a bacterial/viral co-infection, and they would alternately wax and wane.

So to the doctor we go this morning, Lisa Costello driving me, laughing all the way, ha ha ha.
