A couple days ago my right ear was little achey, but I strugged it off thinking it was sinus pressure, well I should of known better with my history of ear infections, but lately I've been stubborn. Anyways, I woke up this morning thinking my ear was going to blow off the side of my head it hurt so bad. So I call my doctor, no openings today or tomorrow (CRAP). So I get out the phone book and look for an urgent care. I guess it's an Ohio thing cause up here in Connecticut, they have clinics and they're nothing like the urgent cares in Ohio. I don't want to sound stuck up or like a rich snob (cause I'm not), but I finally found one that takes our insurance and I felt like I was at a poor person's clinic. It was so dirty looking and obviously needed up to date equipment badly! So, after waiting a hour to see the doctor, I get called back and they did a strep throat culture on me and it came back positive! I've NEVER had strep throat before in my life! Along with that, I have an awful ear infection that the doctor said if I would of waited another day or two, that my ear drum would of ruptured! So now I'm on horsepill sized antibotics (yay). Then on the way home I start thinking that maybe the reason Joey hasn't been eating or sleeping the past two days is because he might be sick too. So I call his doctor in a panic and they tell me to bring him in. His ears and throat look to be ok but they did an overnight strep test on him so I have to wait until tomorrow to get the results! The good news is, they weighed him today and he went from 6lbs 12 oz last Tuesday to 7 lbs 5 oz today!! He's getting so big!!!

A huge thanks to Josh for talking to me on the phone last night... I needed to hear from someone back home. I'm still feeling kinda blue, but better than yesterday. I'll try to update again tomorrow.

ouch!! That doesn't sound like fun at all. Good thing you went in today. We have urgent care in Chicago too so I know what you are talking about. I thought that they had those everywhere...I guess not. LOL. Well anyways, glad you are getting medicine and I hope you feel better soon!
