Yesterday my right ear started to ache really badly. I thought maybe I might have some impacted wax so I broke out my moms cure- hydrogen peroxide and put it in my ear to bubble.
It helped- a lot BUT my ear still felt stuffed.
My wonderful husband let me go to bed early last night- so I was off to bed at 7pm.
I slept til 7am.
My ear no longer hurt, but my eyes were literally glued shut. Wonderful.
I got up and wiped my face and came face to face in the mirror with two red...and I mean RED eyes.
Ugh. So I got the boys up and decided that I needed to take a trip into Urgent Care. As I was waiting in the room with the boys to see the doctor, my left ear slowly started to feel "stuffy". I noticed when I got up this morning that my boys sounded like they were talking into window fans...ya know that garbily sounding voice?
Sure enough, the doctor confirmed what I thought. An infection that caused a double middle ear infection as well as pink eye.
Double Ugh. So off to Meijer I went to get the prescriptions filled and to pick up milk.
Thankfully when we left I had some bottled water from the gym in the car so I took my antibiotic right away. And I gave myself my first round of eye drops.
As I was laying at home on the couch and the boys were having lunch, I noticed my right ear start to make small popping noises. Then guess what? I think my ear drum ruptured. Fluid started coming out and it was a little pink which I think was blood. Really? Could my day get any better? On the plus side, I think it helped because my ears no longer ache. Could be because pressure was relieved or could be from the motrin I took or maybe...just maybe...the antibiotics are kicking in already.
It just blows. I was supposed to go shopping this weekend for my sisters wedding. I was so excited about it and now it looks like I wont be going at all. Maybe next weekend. We shall see.
Tip of the Day:
Make sure you get your rest....so you don't get sick like me! And take a good multivitamin and drink lots of water...so you don't get sick like me. Ha!
