It's hard to say with a straight face: I woke up in pain and feel so much better.
But really I did and I do. I still have a bit of a cough (one of the symptoms that comes with this particular virus of mine). That is par for the course, the last thing to go.
The pain can be dealt with easily enough. Pop a couple of ibuprofen and wait.
In the meantime, I am still a bit weak and, yes, the lymph node is smaller still and less painful to the touch. Whew!
For now, enjoy this bubble which my son happened to "capture" using his cell phone.
