First of all...  
....I wanted to thank you all SO much for the sweet comments you left in my last post. They were all so touching to read that it made me extremely teary. Big *HUGS* to all of you!!

I ended up calling in sick today. :P I rarely call in sick so I felt extremely guilty about it especially because I had a big meeting that my BIG boss depended on me to go to with him. :( But when I woke up without a voice (I have a severe case of laryngitis!) :( and with SO much congestion in my chest that I could barely breathe (I seriously thought I was going to hack up a lung this morning.) :(, I knew that even if I did make it to work, I'd be of no use to anyone. :( I left a message on my BIG boss' cell phone about the meeting and found someone to cover for me... Hopefully he isn't terribly upset - I just hate letting people down! :(

This laryngitis thing really annoys me though... I've never completely lost my voice before and it's pretty hard on someone like me who loves to talk. ;) My voice was already pretty bad yesterday at work and it was funny because NO ONE recognized me when I called them. I got several "Sheri... Sheri who?" and even a "Who is this?" Today it's much worse, though because I can't even squeak out a simple sentence. :P

Hopefully all of this will go away soon (except, of course, for my voice, which I want back):P Tomorrow night is our department's holiday party. In addition to the nice dinner and open bar - which all of our Reps love, this year our company was nice enough to give the back office staff individual rooms at the hotel for the night of the party, so Mark & I will be staying over a night in Waikiki. :) I was really looking forward to this, because I love spending time with my work mates (outside of work), I just hope I'll feel up to going... :P

I'm off to see if my doctor can see me today and possibly hack up another lung... :P

I'm sorry to hear you're sick, Sheri. I never had a laryngitis before but sometimes I wish I have one specially when I know this upcoming wedding on December 11th and I have to sing!!!! I sometimes wish I have laryngitis on that day. LOL

Haha! You must not get laryngitis before the wedding, you'll be great, I know it! :D And thanks for your well wishes, my congestion is a little better, but my voice is still toast. :P

I'm so sorry you're so sick, Sheri!!! :( Laryngitis is no fun!!! I really hope the doctor can see you today. I wouldn't feel so bad about calling in if I were you. You really are sick. Most people that call in sick, really aren't.

As far as the company party goes, I hope you feel up to it. It sure sounds nice! :D

Please take care of yourself and I'll be sending good thoughts your way. Feel better my friend! *BIGHUGS*

Thanks so much, Carrie. I ended up not going to my doctor (because of my call from my other doctor...) but I picked up some SudaFed that said it was good for chest congestion so hopefully I don't wake up tomorrow morning sounding like Darth Vader again. ;)

Thanks so much for the hugs, Big *HUGS* back to you! :)

Being sick around holiday season is no fun. Get better soon!

Thanks so much!! BTW, when's the next time you'll be in LA? Will you be there for "City of Angels?" I'm flying up for that (if they grant my vacation!)
bigrivermusicalbigrivermusical on December 2nd, 2005 05:26 am (UTC)
I don't know yet, but I'll go to L5Y concert featuing JRB himself at Reprise! I'll be in So Cal when City of Angel is playing so I might go but during the weekday.

Can I ask you how much do you usually pay the airfare from Hawaii to LAX? Do you use Priceline?
_stay_gold on December 1st, 2005 07:05 pm (UTC)
oh no, Sheri! I am sorry to hear you are voiceless. :( Feel better soon!! But, take your sick day with pride. :) You're entitled to them.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on December 2nd, 2005 03:18 am (UTC)
Being voiceless for me is so hard (I'm usually such a chatterbox...) ;) Thanks for the well wishes! :) *HUGS*

Feel better sweetie. I lose my voice almost once every year. I just rest it as much as I can, and drink a lot of hot tea, and water.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on December 2nd, 2005 03:22 am (UTC)
Thanks so much Laura! I think I will try some tea, it sounds really soothing for my throat. I'm just glad that I got sick AFTER I came home from my trip and didn't pass anything to Kevin, Julie, etc... Their careers depend on their voices! :(

Hope you feel better soon! (And keep your lungs inside you; they're very important!) :)
*hugs*!!

Hi Rachel! I've missed you! Thanks so much for the well wishes! (And the advice, I guess I shouldn't try to hard to hack them out since I'll probably need them later.) ;) Big *HUGS* to you, too! :)
Rachelreelcowgirl on December 2nd, 2005 05:58 am (UTC)
I know! I feel like I spend no time on LJ anymore because of all of my homework/polo responsibilities. But I try to keep up on everyone's journals. Over the winter break, I will have more time, but no fast Internet. :( But I'll be around. :)

Wow Sheri! When you feel your throat feeling itchy, you should use the original listerine and a q-tip. Just dip it in and swab the back of your tongue. Then dip in the other side of the q-tip and do the same. My friend's friend, who is a nurse, said they do that. You gotta catch it before it gets sore though.

I hope you feel better Sheri!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on December 2nd, 2005 03:29 am (UTC)
Oh, thanks for the tip, Rayna! My voice is LONG gone though, sad to say... :( I can't even squeak anymore. ;) I'll definitely remember your advice for the next time. :)

Thanks so much, Rayna!! :)

The laryngitis and congestion combination might be what happened to me a couple of years ago (basically I had so much congestion that my vocal cords started spasming and I lost my voice for a week) and they may need to give you prednisone or something else for it. If it's gone more than a day or two and you haven't seen the doctor yet, make sure you do go in. I hope you feel better! *hugs*
