Colds, College Trips, and Ear Infections, oh my!

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 20 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

Interestingly enough, all three things I mentioned above fit together. About a week ago, I developed a pretty bad cold. By Wednesday the cold was in full swing and I had to fly to Colorado for a college tour. Well, living in Seattle at an elevation of about 30 feet above sea level, I had to equalize my ear. This happened to be bad. I assume that some of fluid from my cold leaked into the middle chamber of my right ear where it had the chance to grow some more bacteria and become a ear infection…I think. I called the nurses hotline (not the 900 number one, the real nurses hotline) and then scheduled an appointment for the doc first thing tomorrow morning. We’ll see if I get this one right.
