Guess who has an ear infection???

ME...not the kids, ME. Oh my gosh! I don't even know the last time I had an ear infection (if it was ever) because I would have had to have been a wee child. My left ear started ACHING like no other today. I mean...bad enough that I cried. I am a wuss, what can I say? It has been a rough month. And when the ear pain began and persisted, I knew I needed to see a doctor. And so the doctor looked at the left ear and confirmed that I was in pain due to an ear infection. When she looked at my throat she didn't like the look of that either. So she took a swab of my throat for a strep test. Thankfilly it was negative. But she DID write me a prescription for THREE different drugs. An antibiotic, a throat gargle thing, and some prescription-type nose spray. These drugs would have totaled $131.96....BUT...I paid $0. How, you may wonder? Well, thanks to my surgery, we have met our out of pocket deductible of $4000. Lovely. Now if I can just get to feeling better, we can move into our new house and have a wonderful rest of 2009, right?? YAY :)
