Turns out I have an ear infection. My first thought when I found out was “Thank God it’s me and not Klara.”
The problem is that I have to teach today and I can’t hear anything. Of course, I could just lecture for 6 hours, but I hate this kind of teaching if we are talking about literature.
I don’t think I’ve been as sick as often in my whole adult life as I’ve been in this one year. This is what giving birth at 39 does to you, folks.
On the positive side, my doctor was very happy about my weight loss. Doctors tend to be very stuck on weight. She was like, “Yeah, you have a pretty bad ear infection. But I can see in the chart that you are losing weight! That’s fantastic! Congratulations!”
And I was like, “So about the ear infection. . .”
“I’ll give you an antibiotic. But how about that weight loss! That’s really good! You look amazing! Are you planning on losing more weight?”
