    Still have the white nodule in my tonsil - going to call the doc today for a check up. Of course I googled "lump on tonsil" and came up with some scary stuff. I expected to see a cancer be black - but apparently in the mouth it is white. So, now I'm a little freaked out. I've never smoked a day in my life - why would I have throat cancer? Its probably nothing, but I'm not going to wait to have it checked out. I am feeling slightly feverish --- so its possibly the start of strep.

    This morning is take mom to the doc to go over labs, mam, dxa and bp readings. Oh dear. I'll be surprised if he doesn't put her on a low dose med to bring down the bp. Then we need to go grocery shopping.

    The probiotics are still having a war inside my gut all night long. I took the pill 2 hours earlier yesterday - and sure enough I was woken up two hours earlier in the night with a terrible gut ache and nausea. So, I've been awake since 4 am, aside from a small sleep between 6:30 and 7:00. Now I'm up and running.

    Weight is down slightly again. Since starting my 15 day challenge I've dropped 2 pounds 4 ounces. Those ounces count when you're on the way down!

    See a doctor anyway, but I bet you a million imaginary dollars it's a tonsil stone. They can be dislodged with a water flosser, if you have one.

    Let's see if I'm about to be broke imaginary money

    The feverish feeling could be from the probiotics, too. I hope they settle soon =\. Any way you can take less of it?

    Okay - nix the white stuff being cancer........ seems it can be anything else in the tonsil area too. Tonsil stone? Is that like those little hard white globules of smelly icky stuff that sometimes ooze out of the holes in your tonsils? If so - yes, I get those, this one is different - its a while spot beneath the skin, not something I can scrape off. Its imbedded in my tonsil.

    Makes sense the probiotics would cause fever - theres a war going on in there!

    Yeah. Okay, under the skin, maybe not. I've never had one, but I read about them at some point last year when I kept feeling something at the back of my throat. Couldn't see anything in there. I think my uvula was inflamed . Anyway, I hope it's something simple and I'm still sure it's not cancer

    Just called the doc and they have and opening in 45 minutes - so I guess I'll know very soon if its anything to be concerned with.

    Mom's doc put her on low dose bp meds. I expected that.

    Okay - strep test negatory! Doc says I have a cyst on my tonsil - and maybe gargling with salt water will help. Otherwise, it should just go away.

    phew!!!
