It has been about a week since my last update.

I am waving to you from the couch, in a seasick daze. I am still home, still sick. Right now the dr. "guessed" that it is a deep middle ear infection. Sometimes it is called labyrinthitis. Last week I was on antibiotics for swollen glands, and an upper respiratory infection. I am allergic to almost all antibiotics, so last week when I woke up in the middle of the night from severe vertigo, and crawled to the bathroom to throw up I figured it was an allergic reaction to the meds. The next day I went to the doctor, he told me to stop taking the meds in case they were making me sick, and guessed that it could also be a middle ear infection. My ear does not hurt at all. My only symptoms now are a fever (going on week 3) and severe dizziness. He told me to rest and to hope for the best. If it does not get better in a few days I have to go see a specialist. They also want me to go to an allergist to see which antibiotics I can take as there are none left for me to take. Fun times.
Please keep us in your prayers.

Oh my! That sounds awful! We will be praying for you. I really hope they can find something to help you get better. Take care of yourself.

You need to see a good pharmacist. Increase your liquid intake. Meclizine is good for vertigo and allergy symptoms. I continue to pray God's healing power for you each day.
