Okay, so add “sinus infection and ear infection” to the list of things going on right now.
I’m back from band camp and am taking 2,000 mg of antibiotics a day for the next two weeks to try to knock out these infections. Really, it’s 2,000. That number’s so big that when I typed it, it looked like one of my occasional embellishments to the truth – like if I said “hey guys, I’m taking 4,235 mg of antibiotics a day.” But really, it’s 2,000 mg. That’s a lot of drugs.
Unfortunately, the infections mean I won’t be traveling to New York this weekend for my friend Alex’s wedding after all. They don’t want me going through a climate change with fluid in my ears and sinuses, and I don’t feel well enough to travel in any case. I’m really sorry I’m going to miss it, though – I’d looked forward to being there.
So instead, I’m resting at my family’s house for the next couple of days, and then we’ll resume the insane schedule I mentioned earlier.
Band camp actually went really well, though, and I might write about that later.
I missed the computer while I was away, although I didn’t love having to moderate and clean up over 200 spam comments. Urgh. I might have to change something about the comment system to reduce that number a bit, because it’s a pain in the ass to go through and find all of it – and that’s even with a pretty extensive blacklist in place.
My hosting service has just added a really cool feature that lets me create promotional codes to give my readers any discount I want to when they sign up for a hosting package through me. I’ll keep you posted on what I decide to do with that amazing new power.
I hope you all had a great week.
