I seem to have gotten over the cold and swollen glands pretty well.  I still have a few antibiotic pills to take but this round seems to be over except for a few balance issues due to the ear... but that is also improving.  After staging such a great comeback what is my prize? Why I get to see the dentist to take care of some dental  work that had been delayed due to my ear infection.( You talk about your booby prize!!)   I see the pulm on Monday for a routine checkup(for once I'm not sick). It's just my 4 month check in. Then on Wednesday I see the dentist.  I seem to keep the medical community busy. Just my small contribution to lowering unemployment, at least in the health care industries. That's about all that's happening.Be well,Tom
