who is a cranky Flamingo Dancer?


I have been battling with this damn respiratory infection for almost six weeks now and while the coughing is finally abating, I am still deaf in my left ear.

Monday I went to a country doctor who said there was a build up of wax and instructed the nurse to irrigate my ears. which she did with gusto, before jettisoning me out of the surgery even though I said I still couldn’t hear.

Miffed I drove into the city after school for a consultation with my city doctor sure she would have a solution. Oh yes, she said there is a build up of fluid in both ears… just keep doing what you have been doing and it may take A COUPLE OF WEEKS to clear.

Excuse me? A couple of weeks.

Did I mention that I am a teacher? I need to be able to hear clearly.

“Oh steam up the bathroom when you are having a shower and continue taking the antihistamines, if you want… bye”

Pay at the desk.

  1. Someone once told me their doctor recommended stool softener to help reduce their child’s ear wax build-up. The mother said it worked. I’ve never tried it nor had reason to, but thought I’d pass it on. You’ve been suffering too long.
