The wicked ear infection that I had when I came back from NY in December started to resurface a couple of days ago.  Last time I let it get so bad that all I could do was lay on the couch and try not to move my head.  This time I was more aware of early warning signs.

My friend Carla back home told me over the holidays that if I encountered another medical emergency I could call her sister who is a doctor out here.  Before the pain got bad I emailed Carla and within a couple of hours she and her sister had called me.  After talking to Cathie about what I was feeling and what happened over Christmas, she thought it would be good for me to start antibiotics right away.  She called it into Long’s nearby and I went to pick it up.  I came home and slept for the rest of the day.  I’m so grateful to the both them.  K was working again and I was home without a car.

Long’s is a little under 2 miles away.  It’s about the same distance I walk to the Bikram studio. Not a big deal at all.  But by the time I got to Long’s, I was swooning.  I thought I’d have to call a taxi to get back home.  The coolness of the drugstore made me feel better and I survived the walk back home.  I just kept thinking about this flower that I wanted to take a picture of.
