Sick leave

I have just reported for work today. Yep, I was ill with something over the weekend.

I have been bugged by a painful sensation in my right ear for about a month now. I didn't have it checked because I thought it was just the result of my going up to Baguio every weekend. My ears would pop every so often when I go down to Manila. But the pain would persist for days after I the trip.

Then something strange happened last weekend. The pain increased last Sunday, and by the afternoon, I was already running a slight fever. That prompted sickness the following day, and I was not able to report for work. Tuesday found me at the SLU Hospital. I got my ears checked. There was indeed some swelling in my outer ear. I was prescribed painkillers and antibiotics.

I also had an x-ray whose results were to be released the following day. And so on Wednesday, I was back at the hospital. I have sinusitis and something like a cyst on the right side of my head. I need a CT scan but I have to go back to work and catch up on the deadlines piling up on my desk. The CT Scan will have to wait for this Saturday.

On the bright side, I was able to be with my family for four whole days. It was wonderful. I do hope CT scan would show up negative.
