Yesterday Robbie stayed with Kati, the German wife of one of my coworkers. She’s really nice and Robbie did well at her house. The reason for that was that Ryan is out of town for a living history event this weekend and I had a concert in Stone Mountain, GA, – about 3 hours away. The bus ride there was pretty uneventful and the concert itself went really well. The crowd wasn’t really into it, but at least we sounded good! Stone Mountain Park is a beautiful place, and I want to go back some Saturday with Ryan and Robbie and see everything there. I slept most of the way back as my throat was REALLY hurting after playing the whole concert. I even sat out one song (1SG covered my part for me) because it was hurting so much. We got back to post a little before midnight and got the truck unloaded. Then I went and picked Robbie up and came home. I finally got to bed about 2:30, but I don’t think I slept very well.
This morning I took Robbie to the ER with me because my throat was still hurting bad and Robbie’s runny nose had turned from clear to yellow/green. We hardly had to wait at all, which is amazing for the ER on post. Usually you have to wait for 2-3 hours before you get seen. The doctor that saw us was really nice and he went into the computer system to find out my lab results. They all came back negative, so that’s a good thing. Basically Robbie and I just have pretty bad colds. He prescribed some medicine for each of us and also gave me a “no-blow” profile for 3 days. That means I can’t play my horn. Because of that, I couldn’t do the Red, White, & Blue Ceremony this evening and I won’t be playing in the ceremony Monday morning. I got more reading done for my class today, and also some stitching. I’ll be off to bed in a little bit now.
