bad pipes

My tonsil on the left side, part of the lymphatic system, is severely infected. I called the doctor and he told me I had to come in immediately and so I did and none too soon. Apparently the infection is so bad that another day or so and I would have to have surgery. So much for my stoic approach to illness. Yet again I have pushed the edge. Now I am on triple antibiotics and ordered to do nothing for five days. Damn. I will miss swimming.

But my whole jaw, ear and throat hurts on the left side. It is very uncomfortable, to put it mildly, and the advil does almost nothing for it. Hopefully the antibiotics will kick in soon.
