Well, for the past couple of days, I've had a little bump on the back of my head behind my ear. At first I thought it was a bug bite of some sorts, that's what it felt like. I asked Joe to do the inspection and he said it was a bit red, but no sign of a bite.
Last night I noticed that the achy/warm feeling was speading to my ear and jaw a little bit. At 8:00 I decided to try to get into a walk-in clinic, assuming it was a swollen gland or something. Well, the doctor looked at it, felt it and his response was "I'm concerned." Not exactly what I wanted to hear. He told me to get my butt over to the hospital, he thinks I have a bone infection that needs IV antibiotics. He had a fancy name for what he thought it could be, but I don't remember what it was. Great.
So...I came home and Joe hustled me over to the "Prompt Care" hospital. After 4 hours of waiting, we finally saw a doctor. He did the examination and asked me a ton of questions. He thinks it could be the beginning of what the walk-in clinic doctor thought it was, but he thinks it can be treated with oral antibiotics.
So...this morning I dashed over to my favourite place in the world, Walmart (sad, I know) and filled my presciption for antibiotics.
I feel like crap and I seriously need to start thinking about packing for the cottage and getting ready for back-to-school.
To make myself feel better, I bought the latest Martha Stewart magazine and Real Simple magazines. I feel too crappy to read them right now. Back to bed I go.
