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.
