10:29 pm: I Got Antibiotics!
Apparently lots of people are sick right now and I couldn't see my own primary who would believe that I had an ear infection even though it looks fine, so I prepared. I saw a family practice doctor and I showed her the gout tophi on my right hand and then pointed out that it's not red and swollen. So not being red and swollen doesn't mean I don't have something. I think she might have still been a little sceptical until I made the noise I hear in my ear when I bend over. So I have amoxicillin and took one already. The ear doesn't really hurt a lot, it's just this ongoing ache with occasional spurts of pain. I don't normally really think of my ears.

I came home and went back to work on the email. People are being wonderfully generous to Soren! I've taken breaks to eat and do laundry; tomorrow my brother and his family come to take me out to lunch, then they go on to Skyline Drive and down to some apple-picking and back home the next day. I wonder if my nephew will come this time.

Thanks! I put off seeing a doctor for long enough that I probably deserve a slow recovery!

Having kept up with what you've been doing, I rather think you've been busy enough.

Yes, and I now have proof that I can't go back to even computer work. Today my left side is much weaker than usual and I had to have my pizza slice carried for me at Tony's. Things are calming down with the donations, though, and I do think since this will be an ongoing problem, we'll be poking people every few months, but it won't be quite so dramatic.
