Have been in bed the past few days with this cold/cough/flu thing. Lianne said she was feeling unwell too so I thought I'd passed it on. Thursday, however, I found out that she'd had another piercing in her ear - she knows I don't like it so kept it quiet. It had become infected and was causing pain, headaches and nausea. She had gone to a walk in clinic near Liverpool St Station and they had given her antibiotics, frightening the living daylights out of her in the process saying that cartilage infections are the worst and that she may lose her ear!!!
Friday she stayed at home and was very sick so we made an appointment at our Doctors who referred her to the hospital. Hours later......they gave her an anti-sickness pill and sent her home.
Hopefully it will get better on its own now with the AB's etc. I just don't understand why people want to have all these piercings???? I have two holes in each ear and feel this is more than sufficient - is it just my age? :)
