So I woke up this morning, went to brush my teeth, and I found the weirdest thing in the back of my mouth. Two giant red golf balls. Only they weren’t golf balls. They were my tonsils- swollen to the size of golf balls! I hadn’t felt well all day yesterday, but I thought rest and a few meds would take care of it. Well, I was absolutely wrong! My throat was extremely sore, my back, neck, and abdominals were achy, and my head was pounding so hard I thought there was a little man floating above me hitting me with a hammer repeatedly. I immediately called my coach and said I was sick, and didn’t think I’d make it to practice today. Then I walked over to the health center. After sitting in there for almost two hours feeling nauseous, getting examined, having cotton swabs stuffed down my already swollen and sore throat, and crying from the needle that was stuck in my arm to draw blood; the nurse practitioner concluded I have tonsillitis. Tonsil-freakin-itis. Isn’t that great?! Heading into the busiest time of the school year, and I can’t even stay on top of things because I’m in too much pain and too exhausted to even move. What a great ending to the longest weekend of my life!
On the bright side of things I’m excused from fitness testing tomorrow morning, and I got to search the web all afternoon for some pretty cool soccer videos. Check this one out! It’s a pepsi commercial created during last summer’s FIFA World Cup.
Stay tuned for a prelude of my misfortune, to catch a glimpse of the roughest 96 hours I’ve ever had in my life!
