Swish and swallow...
This morning, after my son's send off on his first camp out trip (I shouldn't remind myself I miss him already mouthy little twerp that he can be).. I went out for breakfast with my mom. Then, we came home and decided to 'quickly' clean the bathrooms before going out again.
Well, something funky/hinky happened. I had cleaned the tub with the clorox (with bleach) and thought I had rinsed it well enough to spray my vinegar on it to do a final wipe down and shining up the faucet. Well, I got hit by a very vinegary waft and in a reflex drew back. Geesh..I still got a sore throat afterwards which I endured for most of the day but it just kept bugging me. Then I got freaked out enough to call the doctor's office and the long and short of it is; I got prescribed this mixture (siladryl, maalox, licodaine) which is to numb the pain and coat the mucus membranes in my throat. (there where you can't gargle or 'hold' it)..
Swish and freakin' swallow! It's disgusting and the flavour is making me feel a bit nauseated.
The pharmacist said that if I swished it for a longer time in smaller doses, it would most likely have a better effect. Consequently, I 'swish and swish and swish and numb my mouth and yak..swallow.
I'm obviously still a bit freaked out, good grief. But.. at the doctor's they said that it 'only' looked very irritated and it might've burned the mucus membranes a bit in the back. When I asked how long it could take before getting better she said, oh.. 3 to 5 days!
So TUA.. know anyone who's good for healing prayer??!! (g)
