  1. ear juice claire??? ear juice??? sigh... is that the medical term?

    smiles, bee

  2. Oh, you poor baby...

    Feel better soon, okay? Please?

  3. Hope you feel better soon. Ear infections are so painful. :(

  4. Oh! I hope you feel better soon! There is nothing worse than an ear infection...especially with ear juice. :(

  5. Long, long, long ago when I was in second grade I had the Mother of All Ear Infections. I believe I missed something like two weeks of school and I was absolutely, positively miserable. It's one of the few childhood illnesses that I remember which goes to tell how very bad it was!

    I hope you feel real better real soon and there's no more ear juice for you!

  6. Ear juice? What on heaven's earth is ear juice? Feel better Claire, you are so missed out here in cyberspace. It's way boring without you :)

  7. {{{{ feel better soon }}}}

    I recently got over a nasty double ear infection and it took weeks for the pain to subside entirely.

  8. Earache/infection or toothache and those type problems - it's a toss-up as to which is the worst to endure. Not much that can be done to ease the pain until the antibiotics finally fully kick in full gear and cure it. Hope you get over it soon though as it is really wicked and also, makes it harder then after when you've missed classes, etc., from something like that.

  9. *Sigh* Oh you poor dear...come here to Arkansas and I'll rock you and pat you on the back like I hafta do with my babies when they get those dreaded ear infections!

    Heh heh...seriously I hope you get to feelin' better soon.

  10. Your earache, my backache...what's up? Is this "T13ers get stricken" month on Lifetime or something?

    Here's to getting over the ear infection. It's been years since I had one of those...but I really don't miss them at all.

  11. Poor you! :(

    The last time I had an ear infection, I also had a sinus infection. I was deaf for about 2 weeks before the meds did their thing.

  12. Ugggh... that sounds awful! I really hope you feel better soon. Luckily I've never had an ear infection that I know of.

  13. My 3yr old has an ear infection right now. Poor guy is miserable and the medication is YUK! He cries every time I get the bottle out.
    Poor you! Hope it gets better soon.

  14. It's not often I read you saying you're sad...really tugged at my heartstrings. I hope those antibiotics kick in soon.

  15. Oh ew. Ear Juice. A friend of mine just had an ear infection, she thought the constant dizziness was the worst.

    Happy TT.

  16. take 2 quarts of ear juice and call me in the morning

  17. I really like the term Ear Juice, but I'm sorry you have it. And if it makes you sad, it makes me sad.

    I'm sorry I've lurked, but you know, I've been sick too...

    I feel better today-I hope you do soon!


  18. It's been several years since I've had an ear infection, but I know how miserable you are right now, hope you get well soon.

  19. ugh Claire. ear infections are bad. i actually flew with one years ago and blew my ear drum-yuck!

  20. I know ear infections are no fun, but you #10 made me laugh! Hope you get to feeling better soon.

    Check out my TT.

  21. Ouchies!!! Ear infections HURT!

  22. Nasty name, but for a nasty infection, why not. How long did they say it would take for the antibiotics to work? It should be getting better soon. Hang in there and get some notes from your classmates.

    Your nephews are cute! Rugby? Guess he'll either love the tackling or hate it.
