Puerto Rico 2011 – Day 4

Woke up today with an amazingly sore throat. It was the first day of the meeting so I was up early. Thankfully, I had gone to bed early, and despite the fact I tossed and turned most of the night, I wasn’t too tired in the AM. We got everything set up and ready to go. As soon as the little gift shop was open, I got myself some throat lozenges to try and help. They were not very helpful, but it was better than nothing.

During the sessions, I was able to use my iPhone to record some comments by the doctors that we will use to promote the conference. It was nice to feel productive with my gadgets.

The conference went very smoothly and the doctors all seemed very pleased. As soon as it got a bit slow after lunch, I went upstairs to relax and ended up sleeping for a few hours. My throat was in full red alert, so I started adding some Sprite to the mix to soothe it. While I was upstairs, I checked and it looks like my tonsils were swollen – yay tonsillitis! At least there are a lot of doctors around if things go horribly wrong..

At the end of the day, we had a reception for all the doctors with some great food. It was a nice way to end a long day! After we wrapped everything up by playing YouTube roulette, I headed upstairs to take some Excedrin and another Emergen-C. I felt a bit feverish, so hoping that by turning off the AC I will help my throat relax and recover.
