Of sinus infections and popsicles

My dear husband has had a terrible sinus infection for almost two weeks. He's had an awful time of it and the Vicodin prescribed for pain didn't sit well with him so the doctor suggested he stop taking it. Yesterday I returned from a drugstore run to find him flat out on the couch in a great deal of pain. To top it off, he had taken one of the Vicodins and, along with the intense pain, he developed intense pain in his stomach, along with a continued "loss of food and fluids". And he'd been doing so well....
Long story short, I drove him to the Quick Response center, something new in town for those occasions when you can't get to see your own doctor. I'll spare you all the gory details, but he was given a shot of Phenergen and off we went before he got too drowsy. Safely at home with the two dogs watching over him, I made my run to the store for essentials. I got the usual: Gatorade, applesauce, and grape popsicles. The popsicles were for me. Box of eight. I just polished off the last one.
And Ken? He's feeling a bit better today.

  1. Popsicles? Were they out of FUDGsicles? To each his own, I suppose. Glad to hear he's feeling better. That had to have been just awful.
