I lost most of my hearing in both ears yesterday and so back to the doctor I went this morning. One ear was totally blocked by wax – apparently I produce copious amounts of ear wax in narrow ear canals, oh dear! I thought the doctor’s glee over what she released from my ear was somewhat overexcited, but I was happy to give her a moment of achievement in what must be a long dreary day!
The other ear is apparently still swollen from the recent infection and the influenza, so hopefully will settle in a day or two. Let’s not hold our breath on that… At least I have one hearing ear and can now hear the phone when it rings! Mr FD can no longer mumble insults and passive aggressive threats under his breath as I can now hear them also (how quickly the masses unravel and revolt when the firm hand of control wavers for a second).
The doctor sent me home to blow dry my ears! No they are not big ears! My ears are quite dainty and elegant as you a Flamingo Dancer’s ears would be!
It is one thing to send someone home to blow dry their ears, another for that person to know when enough is enough. Was I to blow it from a distance from my head? Was it to be like a gentle sea breeze or a gale? Hot, warm, cool? In the end I optioned for slightly away from the head on the lowest heat setting and dried until I thought I could smell grilled meat…
There is always new experiences to be had in life, and I just experienced one!
