Not on my check list

Double earaches caused by fluid behind the ears causing dizziness and nausea...NOT on my checklist.But, thank goodness that since the snotty lady at my doctor's office told me I could NOT be seen until NEXT Tuesday, the Immediate Care office down the road said they could see me at 9:30. Whew! And they took military insurance, another Whew! They saved me a 4 hour wait at the ER. My local Walgreen's is working on my Rx right now, and hopefully I will be feeling better by this evening. Thank goodness that there are still some compassionate health care providers out there!

Oh no!!! Good thing you found a place that could get you in. Hope you are back to feeling healthy again really, really soon.

Ah gee that's not a pleasant thing you're experiencing. Lifting you in prayer, dear lady, that your recovery would be quick and that you'd be well and wonderful when your dear hubby arrives home. <><

That's the military for ya! I hope you get to feelin better soon. Love you!

Jennifer said...

"Whew!" is right!

I'm so sorry you are feeling sick :o( I hope you are feeling 100% better by tomorrow.

I miss you and hope besides your ears that you are doing great! I love you and want to see you really soon! (but of course that will be at least a month after Jason returns ~~ wink!wink!)

Oh.My.Goodness. I hope you feel better soon! I can't believe your doctor's office couldn't/wouldn't see you for so long. :(

Dawn said...

That doesn't sound right. How can a doctors office not see someone sooner than that. Good thing for acute care clinics. Hope the medicine kicks it in to high gear. There is no illness aloud when seeing hubby! Hope you are feeling better before he gets home.

Bless your heart! I pray the meds work fast!

Karen said...

I still can't believe they wouldn't work you in. What do they expect people to do when they're sick?

Aw... if you need anything, let me know. Praying for you.

I'm certain you are so excited to have your hubby home to make it complete.

Just think of Jason and his home coming and that will push you to feel better in spite of the ear infection...Praying for your quick recovery

Tammy said...

Oh...that's awful that they wouldn't see you! A double ear infection needs to be seen!
So glad God paved a way for you anyway...
I'll be praying that you feel absolutely wonderful by next Monday!

I'm sorry have an ear infection.
I can't believe they couldn't get you in. That is frustrating.
Hope you are feeling better by the time Jason comes home.
