Well, this morning I had planned to take the minivan for repairs, but I woke up and looked over at Hotter and said "think I'll wait on the van until payday and stop at Urgent Care on the way home from work, I really do feel awful." And then I stopped on the way to work and bought cold medicine and an energy drink, and by midday both had worn off and I was coughing my head off, and nobody had a problem with it when I left early and went to Urgent Care, where they they thought I sounded pneumonia-y but a chest x-ray proved them wrong.
So it's just a sinus and ear infection, and bronchitis, and I am on antibiotics and some codeine-laced cough syrup. Blah. I'm not so far-gone that I wasn't delighted--DELIGHTED--at how little that cost me at the pharmacy with my employer health insurance, but it's close. Especially since after a hot bath I rinsed my sinuses out an then blew my nose and POW! Bad Ear ruptured again, complete with bloody drainage. Which was odd as it only started hurting while I was in the waiting room at Urgent Care and hadn't been that painful, really, up until it was.
The good news, besides that it's Not Pneumonia and Didn't Bankrupt Me, is that tomorrow I have a rare day TOTALLY OFF. I plan to spend it eating soup and taking naps, because I am wild and crazy like that.
How are all of YOU?
