This time it was my turn to care for Jennifer. Neither of us have been really sick in a while, and she finally drew the short straw.
Friday she came home with a very sore ear. We think it got plugged while the barometer dropped, and so she wasn't able to get it equalized. Our temporary fix was a hydrogen peroxide cleaning followed by rubbing alcohol. We did that about 5 times before she got some relief. Then we went to Target and got some drugs for her.
We both slept a lot this weekend, but I mostly remained near her in case she needed anything. I made a lot of tea, and some simple meals that would go down a semi-sore throat easily.
The good part is that one week from today we'll be on our way to Las Vegas for Christmas.
