Yep, I predicted I would be too sick to go to work today, so I managed to let my boss know in advance that if I didn't show up, this would be why. I feel terrible. My throat is a little better, but my ear is a lot worse, and I'm completely exhausted. Right about now, it would be nice to have someone here to take care of me..
The large mug of ginger tea I made last night (from fresh ginger) probably helped with the throat, but I have no such tricks for ear infections.
