View Full Version : The Next Blitz Report Radio Show to air on FRIDAY

01-19-2005, 04:08 AM
8 pm Update: I feel fine, with the exception of this whole throat thing. I can talk fine but it probably would not last more than five minutes without some obvious discomfort and coughing. According to the Doctor's office I become "decontagious" within a couple of days, which SHOULD mean that Drew will not be affected if he's in the studio with me friday evening, but right now he can still get Strep. So we're being cautious. Sorry for the inconvenience and we hope to hear from all of you friday....

First off, let me begin by saying that if there are any weeks where we would not be able to have a radio show, this would NOT be one. Unfortunately I now accompany the Finheaven's "Injured List" with "Strep-like symptoms". I went to the doctor today and she checked out what felt like a grapefruit in my throat. I feel absolutely fine right now besides that, so like I said, it's still early. To make a long story short, I just downed six small pills and one pill that looked like an elephant tranquilizer. The six were to bring down the swelling, and the other one was to combat what looked like strep throat. For the dedicated listeners that have heard me on the air with a sore throat, that's about as painful to the ears as it is to me physically. This would only be worse....There also is the fact that Strep is highly contagious and being that I work in close proximity with my co-host, out of respect for him I don't want to expose him to Strep, cause that is not fun.

For my closing quote, I now have something in common with Jason Giambi. We have both taken steroids (cept mine were oral LEGAL steroids)

Thank you,

Not yet....but they will if these meds dont work out.

I've had worse "culture-swabs" done to me so I'm not sweating anything.

I do Rapid Strep tests all the time here at work. Takes about 10 minutes once I get the swab to see if you have strep throat.

Hope you feel better soon :up:

I'm sick myself. :( Somethings goin around up here in NY. Maybe it's reached Florida.

Yeah Matt, feel better bro. I've had the bug twice and it's torture.

I know what your saying Phinz, I've caught the flu twice already. There's definitely a bug going around (especially in NY) and with all the New Yorkers in Florida, maybe they carried it down with them!

I've got this thing about sticking q-tips down the back of my throat. Last time I had one done, I was 15, pretty built for my age... and had to be held down by two nurses so they could do the swab.

Lord help me if I get strep again... you don't wanna have to hold down a 6 foot 2 inch 250 pound guy to stick a q-tip in his mouth.

Ok... so I'm a baby.
