Pitt Clinic & Tonsilitis

This morning, I went to the Pitt Clinic (a MedExpress for Pitt Employees). We drove in to work today, and arrived in Oakland a little earlier, then expected so he dropped me off at the clinic, before parking the car and going to work. I was concerned. When I arrived at the front desk, I had practically no voice. They checked me in and took me back right away.
When the Nurse Practitioner came in, she examined my mouth and my throat with the light and said, that I have tonsillitis. She gave me a prescription for Amoxicillin to take three times a day for 7 days, great!
When I left the office, I called Drew and told him. He said, “Oh wow, that sucks! are you going to be able to drive home?” I said, “Yes, can I just come to get the keys?” he said that he can bring them over to me in an hour so? Since I might want to let the traffic die down a bit since it is rush hour. I agreed.
When I got to my office, I sat down in my chair, and I was so miserable. I was burning up. I was losing my voice. I just wanted to leave. I called my boss and told her. She told me to just go home, instead of only entering 3 hours of normal time and the rest sick time for the day. I agreed that was stupid.
When I got off the phone with her, I packed up and called Drew.  I told him to please meet in Hogwarts with the keys. Phyllis said I should just go home since I am sick. He agreed. He met in Hogwarts with the keys. He could tell that I was miserable. He said, “Do you want me to see if I can take you or home? Or if Bill will let me work from home? I said, “If you want to baby, I will be here.” I took a seat and waited for Drew.
After a while, Drew texted me and said that he was able to come home with me and work from home. Drew drove us home. On the way, he stopped and picked up my prescription, Gatorade, and Kleenex. This was going to suck. I hate being sick.
When we got home, I tried to relax. I was coughing and hit hurt to cough, and swallow. It felt like razors in my throat. How long is this going to last? Tomorrow I planned to go to my PCP and follow up.
