Jen update

Jen's not been feeling that great the last few days, though she has been going to work. So at about 1:30 in the morning, she wakes me up. Well, now she sounded practially hoarse and looked ... well, horrible. Her right eye was very red, and she said it was irritated an burned. After clearing the 1:30 am fog out of my mind, I called the advice nurse, who suspected that she has an eye infection, possibly caused by the cold she has. An appointment will be made for the morning to confirm and get any drugs necessary.

Appointment made for 8:45, and we were out of there by 9:45. The PA confirmed what the nurse said -- conjunctivitis (aka pink eye) caused by her cold. She's got some eyedrops to take. The PA also gave her something for her coughing. She's been coughing so much that she's now lost her voice, so hopefully this new med will help.

*sigh* That rude awakening at 1:30 scared the crap out of me when I finally was able to think!
