I went to the nurse practitioner for a follow-up appointment this morning. I still, apparently have an outer ear infection, but no more middle ear infection. She had been concerned that perhaps the persistent infections were a sign of diabetes, so she had me come in fasting so she could check my blood sugar. It was 86. Apparently this is a very good resting blood sugar, and I'm fine with that. Seth said it should be below 100 but above 60, so that's fine with me.
In the meantime, I'm going to see an ENT this week. Joy.
