Hi everybody, I'm home. What a wonderful week. I never laughed so much in my life. They had fixed it so we all sat together for dinner, so it was lots of fun & the guys had us all in stiches every night. The only bad part was.....I got sick. Woke up Tuesday morning with a sore throat and a little twinge in my left ear. I didn't want to miss the day's events, so got ready to leave the ship anyway. When we got back on the ship, I went and got a bite to eat and then went to the cabin and layed down. During the night I had the most horrible pain & pressure in my left ear I have ever experienced as an adult. So those with me convinced me I should be seen. Lynnette and Barbara went with me down to the Medical Clinic and I was checked out. I was very glad when the strep test was negative, however the cute Norwegian doctor said my left inner ear was a mess. So he had the attractive Russian nurse draw some blood, and the other nurse from Sweden took my vitals. He came up with a diagnosis of bronchitis and an ear infection. He gave me a prescription for some Zithromax and a nose spray for the ears. Total cost= $325.00. I called my insurance company when I got home today and they said to send them the paper work and most of the well be reimbursed. So I missed 2 dinners because of not feeling well and I actually lost 3 pounds from laughing and coughing. I did not, however, miss the midnight chocolate buffet. I took over 200 pictures and will be going thru them, I promise I won't post them all.
Anyway, I'm off to my doctor, here in about an hour for a follow-up and then to pick up Gabi. I'm anxious to see if she still likes me, after being left for a week. So more later. I missed you all and will try to catch up. I turned off most alerts but still have 363 emails in my in-box. So until later.............Linda
