Just a little whiny post today.
Since mid-February, I have had many idiotic contraptions stuck in my right ear. It hurts and I’m fed up.
I have been to more doctors and specialists in the last three years, than I have visited my entire life. It’s not that I was never sick, because I’ve had my share of colds and a bout of the flu once. I also endured three gestational periods, with frequent draining of blood, pointing out how much weight I was gaining, and the measuring of my ever growing belly.
We moms know we don’t have time for illnesses, so I sucked up most of my ailments and soldiered on.
Last week, or so ago, the ENT gave me drops to put in my ear for an infection. Did he take a test or anything to determine what kind of critter was causing havoc in my ear? No.
So I returned this week with the same problem. He determined that I needed to have my ear dried out, so I was given a prescription to puff some powdered medicine into my ear canal with a funky little contraption. It makes me wonder what inventors of medical torture devices are thinking when they invent the best way to administer medications. They’re sick minded people–very sick.
Obviously, I will return next week with the same symptoms.
I had one day of being able to hear out of that ear. I’m now dealing with a dry, blocked ear. Oh, and did I mention it hurts now? 🙂
Yesterday, I learned that I don’t have a brain tumor causing my loss of hearing and aching ear, but I still have a problem, and I’m rather exhausted being the local guinea pig.
I just hope there isn’t a tiny earwig, eating its way through my brain, leaving eggs behind. Just like this post of mine.
**while I’m vaguely blogging about motherhood, our little mama robin flew the coop. I thought it was my frequent visits to peek and see if there were babies yet. I felt so bad thinking I had scared her off. After Googling for information about robins….I got a mirror and checked in her nest. No eggs. When I peeked last week, there were four eggs. Some critter robbed the mama of her babies! I suppose it’s the cycle of life, but I was so looking forward to the babies.
