Oh My! I have an ear infection that has me wiped out!!! It started innocently as some congestion from allergies, darn cottonwood trees. Within days I was really congested. I broke down and asked the school nurse to look at my ear Wednesday, which she declared "That's the worst looking ear I've ever seen!" So I broke down and ran over to the minute clinic. Thank you to the school secretary for finding me a sub. Needless to say I was given some antibiotics and ear drops. What I wasn't prepared for was the chance that the antibiotics wouldn't be strong enough. I took Thursday off, but came in on Friday since we are having sub shortage.
Fast forward to Friday night when I was still not getting any better. The pain was intense-- I am one of those tough ladies that gave birth to 3 kids without meds- and this ear pain was worse! My lovely daughter convinced me to go to the Emergency Room on a Friday night. Thank goodness!! I got stronger meds and PAIN pills! WOO HOO!
I have spent the past two days sleeping. My daughter insisted that I wake up and eat today. (She's ruining my new diet plan!) I still can't hear, but I think the antibiotics are starting to kick in. I went to school to set up for a sub tomorrow. I need at least another day off to get it together! Sadly, we begin End of Year testing Tuesday, I will be back regardless of my condition on Tuesday!
So, how is everyone holding up? Any other end of the year crisis?
