Seven 9s and 10s

High-res GPOYW
Anyway. My predictions were spot on. When the doc walked in he gave me a look like “Really? Again with this shit?”
The rapid strep test came back negative. He took another culture that he’ll send to the lab for a full test.
He still thinks it’s probably Group A Strep and he sent me away with a script for Amoxicillin and a recommendation to continue my Advil/Tylenol regimen for the swelling and the pain.
I just swallowed 8 pills in one sitting. Experience tells me that if this is indeed strep, the Amoxicillin will kick in after a day and I’ll feel almost 100% better by Friday. If it’s not strep, I’ll just be needlessly eating antibiotics and for 10 days. In either case, I’ve got 10 days of Stinky-Pee™ to look forward to.
