sick sick sick sick

What I feared would happen happened--the fluid in my ears got infected, and now I've got a middle ear infection. I never really felt completely better after my travels, and last night during "The West Wing" it hit me like a ton of bricks. I slept fitfully, ibuprofen having little effect, tossing off my bedcovers. I woke up with a 101 fever and all achey. I went to Medemerge (our primary care physician is there) and got in right when they opened at 8. I'm now on $80 antibiotics (my wife informs me we'll get reimbursed by insurance) and wonderful prescription strength decongestant. I should feel better in a few days. Then I have to start working out because my blood pressure is a bit high. Not surprising. I figure if I lose the 20 pounds I want it'll be fine. Thing is I've only worked out twice since I came back because I've been feeling blecchy.

And I was supposed to have an exam on Saturday that I've been completely unable to study for. I have it rescheduled for Tuesday though. I hope I can meet with my graduate advisor then as well. We shall see.

Meanwhile, I'm in "meetings only" mode at work. I came in for our library meeting today, and will come in for technology committee tomorrow. I'll stay as long as I can bear, I'm figuring 3 doses of antibiotic should work their magic. And perhaps I'll get a good night's sleep.
