Antibiotic #7

I spoke with Dr. Hood's medical assistant and she relayed that he is very concerned about this infection not clearing up. He called in a prescription for DS11 that is the big guns. Seriously. This is the same medication that I take for bronchitis or sinus infections from time to time only at 4 times the daily dose that I take.

We go in for another detailed exam on April 3rd. At that point, if the sinuses, the throat, the ears are not all completely clear, then we will schedule surgery.

Needless to say, I am not going to even mention the possibility of surgery until we know for sure. I see no valid reason to upset him unless it is absolutely necessary. I refuse to pour salt into that wound! He has suffered enough.
