Glory be, my blood test for mono came back negative, so this whole tonsil ordeal and a weird cold/flu that plagued me - I still haven't completely shaken it off - isn't from one of the suckier viruses on the scene.
In fact, looks like acid reflux is the cause of my throat issues. Which will take over a month to really resolve, I'm told. Again, that whole aging thing sucks in these cases, but I can't complain!
Fun stuff coming soon to this blog again. Really!
