I apologize for being such a Debbie Downer lately. I thought I was getting better after taking the Zpack, despite my ears being plugged but yesterday I just really felt blah. My ears were still completely plugged and the right one was making an awful whistling noise when I blew my nose. I had sinus pressure, my glands were still swollen and I had very little energy. I made it at work until noon and then I knew I had to do something.
After reviewing my symptoms, the doctor looked in my ears and found no wax but lots of fluid. I was diagnosed with Eustachian Tube Dysfunction and prescribed a Prednisone taper. I have to take them for 9 days starting with 3 a day and tapering down to 1 a day. Some of you have marathon training tapers…I get to taper steroids. ;) I should start feeling some relief in 48 hours. I really hope so because this is 8 days now that I’ve been dealing with this. I’m ready to feel like myself again!
The morning started with some vanilla greek yogurt and granola.
Followed by a banana.
Dane’s sister is visiting from CT. She dropped me off at work in the morning and headed to the beach. I called her to come pick me up so I could go to the doctor and she brought me a smoothie. I think it was blueberry banana.
I’ve been meaning to buy multivitamins for a long time so while I was at CVS, I picked up some Gummy Vites.
When we got home, I had some carrots and hummus.
And a small piece of chocolate.
Dane made Chicken Marsala, mashed sweet potatoes/carrots and sugar snap peas for dinner. Delicious.
After dinner his sister reminded me that she had never been out for Frozen Yogurt, so I changed my clothes, grabbed my keys and we were out the door.
She really liked it! CT needs to get their act together. :)
I hope you’re having a wonderful week. Can you believe it’s Thursday already? I feel like I haven’t accomplished anything.
