So on Wednesday, Wizard went to the doctor after I nagged him into doing it. He came home and said, “No infection, just severe congestion.”
I’m like…hmmm… But what can I say? He went to a doctor that I know is very good. So…maybe I’m wrong and he just has a bad cold.
Then, after dinner Wednesday night, he went to pick up the prescription the doctor had called in for him, but it wasn’t ready. Wizard was annoyed and left instead of waiting. I was going to go pick it up for him later that night, but he told me not to, that it was just nose spray and could wait until the next day. So I waited because I’m not feeling a 100% myself.
Then last night, this was our conversation at dinner after I’d picked up what turned out to be TWO prescriptions.
Me: “I don’t understand why the doctor gave you antibiotics if you just have a cold. You told me you don’t have an infection.”
Wizard: “Oh, yeah, what he said was I don’t have an ear infection, but I have a sinus infection. That means severe congestion, right?”
Picture me banging my head on the dinner table. Finally I told him, “No, a sinus infection can be serious and is always miserable. That’s why it’s called AN INFECTION. Why didn’t you tell me this YESTERDAY so I could pick up the antibiotics?”
At this point Wizard leaned back in his chair, like I was yelling or something. “Um…I didn’t know he was giving me the antibiotics until I got to the pharmacy and it wasn’t ready. I didn’t think it was any big deal.”
This is my fault for not making my very-smart-in-so-many-things-but-THIS-husband tell me EXACTLY what the doctor said. But the good news is that Wizard’s on antibiotics and will be feeling better soon! We’re going to celebrate his birthday one way or another this weekend. And there will be chocolate cake, which everyone knows is good for sinus infections
During all this sickness drama and trying to get ready for Wizard’s birthday I’m working, actually writing pages which I’m thrilled about.
What are your plans this weekend?
