Flashcard update!

Flashcard update!
I'm halfway through Wills, and still have Trusts, Remedies and PR left. I was thinking how easy this will be in February, having my flashcards already made. Kidding. Sort of.

You know, I was so excited when I hit the big 1000 on my site-meter a few months after my blogs initiation into the world, I can't believe I didn't notice when I hit 2000 barely a week and a half later. Crazy! So, Visitor 2181, I dedicate that stack of flashcards to you.

So, my friend stayed overnight at the hospital. An ear, nose and throat specialist saw him this morning and found an abcess in his throat which they removed. The doc says it was probably brought on by strep throat, which is highly contagious, and which prompted his roommate to call me after they found that out, since our symptoms are pretty similar. However, like everything else I've experienced this week, I've never had strep throat, so I wouldn't even know how to identify it. Like Thursday when I went all day thinking I was groggy and tired, when I was actually burning a fever. I've heard strep is incredibly painful though, and my throat doesn't hurt, it's just tight. At any rate, my other eye is infected now, which was pretty much a given. I wore glasses all day yesterday, since I couldn't put my contacts in, any my eyelashes hit the lenses, so there was probably no way I could keep my other eye from getting it. Wicked gross.

Okay, Gods of Sickness - I get the message already! I'll call AU tomorrow and have them recommend a doctor who takes walk-ins. But if it's really bad, I'll go to Georgetown Medical, where my friend went, and tell them "I have what he had." Of course, my friend's been on morphine and percocet since then, so I'm thinking that won't mix well with my massive flashcard learnin'.

congrats on the 2000 mark!!! Amazing!! =)

I hope you don't get strep. I'm sending you all my get better vibes.

I'm stressed out and for me that means that my immune system goes down. Knock on wood I don't get physically sick.

Back to flashcards pour moi.

Strep Throat? That sounds serious.
I'm beaming over some virtual anti-bodies right now.

I hope you'll be alright soon. May I ask to please keep us (me) posted on the doctor's verdict.

I don't think I'll ever be done with Wills. I am on pg. 10 (almost) and I've been working on outlining/flashcarding it since about 6:15. This is madness and annoying. I wanted to be finished with all of my subjects by the two-week mark so that I could devote those last two weeks to review. Looks like that AIN'T gonna happen. Still have to get through this, Wills, Trusts, PR.

You'd better get your arse to the hospital. You have to be okay to drink with me!
