Sorry, guys. I’ve been a bit busy. I will be updating pictures of new things in my life ASAP (like my bike!!!) but first, an adventure in Jennie’s life.
Friday morning, as the day wore on, I realized my tonsil was approximately double its normal size. This alarmed me, but I did not feel sick at all, so I figured I was fine.
Saturday morning, I took some IB and headed to soccer. I drank some water, tried not to yell as much, and did what I could to make it stop hurting. Took some more IB. Headed home with Jeff, cleaned the kitchen floor, did the dishes, cleaned the bathroom floor, went to Corelyn’s, help her with dishes, watched her mop the floor and the bathroom. Went to Trader Joe’s, bought 10 pizza crusts (more pictures to come) and went home. Made 10 pizzas, drank some wine, and had a party. Got a bike!! (In case you’re wondering, it’s birthday season here in my providential life.)
Took some more IB. Slept from 1 to 11 the next morning, because my tonsil doesn’t hurt when I’m sleeping. Woke up, took IB. Grumbled. Made some breakfast, headed to the farmer’s market. Headed home. Took pictures of my bounty. Planned a week’s worth of meals. Went to Ikea, then Ralph’s. Cooked some food (pictures to come) and ate. Cleaned up. Swept the living room, dining room. Helped Corelyn with “thank you” cards from her wedding.
Grumbled. Went to bed tired and angry. Tonsil = a cherry tomato.
Went to the doctor this morning:
“Well, it’s fine. It’s not infected or anything.”
“Your ear looks like the eardrum may have burst. It’s a little red, has a spot of blood. ”
WHAT? This, apparently, is normal when your ear drum bursts. Your tonsil gets big? I guess.
GREAT. So then I bought some acetaminophen (generic Tylenol) because I figured I should stop taking so much IB.
And, by the way, guess how much my acetaminophen was? $1.46. For 100. That’s roughly a penny a pill. Which is marvelous, indeed. Oh, how I love generics and small town pharmacies!
