Home sick.

25 Jun

Hi all.  Me again, checking in from an internet cafe that for all the world seems to be downwind from a dumpster.  Mmm.

Today was the first day of the excavation, and I got sent home!  Go me.  I got sick last Wednesday with a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad sore throat.  I got magic lozenges from the pharmacy.  I took the last one on Saturday morning and promptly got sick again.

I don’t know if this is the same thing or something new.  My throat is still quite sore, though not swollen at all.  Now I have this terribly dry, painful cough.  I don’t know if I should get the same lozenges again or try for something new.  I’ll see what the pharmacist has to say about it.

I am sort of glad to have gotten to go home.  Honestly, it was terribly tedious and I was not in any way enjoying myself.  I think it will get better since the beginning is all about reorganizing the site for the new dig season. 

If someone offered me a trip home right now, I’d be on the plane by tonight.  I know it sounds whiney and ungrateful and whatever else, but I just want to be home.

I also promise that things will begin to look and sound more positive once I am healthy again.  I am so sorry for not keeping up on everyone’s blogs as well!  I have to pay for internet access, so I am trying to keep surfing to a minimum.  I will catch up when I am home again.

Until the next post, take care of yourselves and the people you love.

    Make the best of the time you get there kiddo! You’ll be home again soon enough. I hope you’re feeling better soon as there’s nothing worse than having illness ruin a perfectly good trip.

    Aaarrrgghhhh, that sucks that you get back to lovely Roma and you get sick! I hope you feel better soon, but if you don’t, you can switch places with me – I’ll go to Rome and you can come home! eh? eh?

    Oh Heather! It sucks to be sick when you’re in a different country – I remember that awful feeling all too well! Take care of yourself (Juice! and naps!) and know that we’re all thinking of you here!

    Yikes! Sick? That’s rough my friend! As for being homesick, that’s a hard situation, but one that I can completely understand. I hope that you feel better soon and that you find yourself (sooner, rather than later) in your own bed. Safe travels!
