…having some illness issues. The cold is hanging on- and I had to go to the Emergency room on Saturday to have an abscess behind my ear looked at. I’ve had MRSA. Arguably, it still lives on my body, so I have to be careful. So, whenever I get a skin infection, it’s off to the doctor I go. I had gotten a haircut on Wednesday, and she nipped the back of my ear slightly. That allowed some bug to crawl in and take over the (small) space between the bell of my ear and my head. Very painful. It was so swollen, it was actually making my ear stick out noticeably- making me look more unbalanced than usual.
The first thing I noticed when I entered the emergency room was a sign that said:
No guns, knives or weapons of any kind
in the Emergency Room or Waiting Room.
Please check all such items at the desk.
Welcome to Butte.
I got the thing lanced and was sent home with a couple of enormous pills to take twice a day for a week. All’s good, but I’m still a little woozy. It’s amazing how my body is not as young as I often feel. I have to keep reminding myself (or Ken reminds me) that I’m middle-aged and disease or no disease, I just don’t heal like I used to. Anyway, I felt good enough to see people today in my office and churn out an article for Bilerico, so progress….
