I did get a call from my dr. yesterday afternoon telling me that my strep test came back positive. I had 3 cultures done because I kept telling all the dr.'s that I had strep but they would not listen. the rapid test came back negative so they didn't culture it. Well finally my family dr. listened to me. So I am happy to report that I now have antiobiotics and should be feeling better soon. I do still have the spinal headache but I can tell every day that it is continuing to get better. I did sleep in today till noon and rest always helps a sick body. It was the first night since last week that I almost slept through the night, I did wake up 2x to go to the bathroom but that is ok, the fact that I found a comfortable position to sleep in was good enough for me! Also I have managed to get on the computer today and start uploading my vacation photos, that is a good sign that I am tolerating staying in one position longer than 30 minutes at a time. I do know that I can't push it or I will be back at square one. So for now I will take long rests in between my moments of normalcy! Or what seems like normalcy.
