A couple of days after my return my ears started to tingle and then on Wednesday the left ear blossomed into full-on pain. We went to urgent care and the doctor said that I had ear infections in both ears. She said that they were pretty deep so not the usual swimmer's ear from all my time at the beach/pool. I stayed home on Thursday and Friday and watched the Olympics with my ears plugged up with meds and cotton balls. It was not so much fun.
Still trying to catch up - and get ready for a trip to Burundi during the first two weeks of September.
