And it has nothing to do with cancer!
I feel like my ear is going to explode!!
I was in pain all Shabbat. As soon as Shabbat ended, I called the doctor (GP) on duty, who recommended ear drops and ibuprofen. Moshe was worried that that was not enough. So, I called a friend of mine, who is a doctor and lives close by. We went to her home, she looked in my ears, and concurred.
So, I used the ear drops and hoped that I would feel better by the morning.
What a miserable night.
By morning, the pain was radiating all over the right side of my face and neck.
I went to the Medical Center for their walk-in-clinic at 7:30! I never am up that early. But the pain is so bad, I can't sleep. My doctor (GP) was on duty and he prescribed stronger pain medication (CodAcamol) and antibiotics.
I took the medication right away, and managed to sleep for a few hours until the pain woke me up again.
It is mid-day and I can't take another dose of the CodAcamol until this evening.
I am still in agony.
The doctor says I should be feeling better tomorrow.
Meanwhile the pain is unbearable.
I am just waiting for this day to end....
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
more observations in the USA (Chicago day whatever)
