I am Thankful for Penicillin

I have a middle ear infection. I get one every few years, and I have been getting them since I was a kid. I can pretty much diagnose myself.

When I get one, I typically go to my ear, nose and throat specialist, and he prescribes me Amoxicillin, which is a type of Penicillin.

When I had a similar infection a few years back, I asked the doctor treating me what would have happened to me had Penicillin not existed.

"Oh that's easy," he said. "You would have died a long time ago."

I guess many others would have as well.

This week, I am definitely thankful for Penicillin.
