Tonsil hockey

So...went to the doctor yesterday. Yep, had to go on Sunday because I've got an infected tonsil. It's not strep or tonsilitis, but an infected tonsil. It'd been hurting for a few days, but when I woke up yesterday, my whole throat hurt and the tonsil in question looked pretty gross. Got a presciption for an antibiotic to solve this problem.

Also mentioned to the doc that I'm addicted to nose spray. If I don't use it at night, I can't breathe. He wrote me scripts for Nasocort, a non-addictive nasal spray; methylprednisolone, a mild steroid; and Allegra D, which I didn't fill since it cost over $100. I did get Claritin-D, which I've used before. The meds cost me $94...I shudder to think what it would have been without prescription coverage.

I didn't go to the doctor ONE TIME in 2006. As of yesterday, I've already met my deductible for '07. Sheesh...this crap better quit soon or the dogs are going to have to get jobs.


So the 2007 budget is already looking bad. Guess you know where the extra $$$ will be going!!!
