Hunting down the ear troll. :)
Today I started a third antibiotic… one that is actually used to prevent malaria of all things. For a couple hours after taking a dose I’m on the floor in the fetal position, sick as all get out, but that’s better than being sick all the time as I was on the previous prescription. LOL And as of this evening, my one ear is popping and snapping more frequently than rice krispies in milk. It’s really strong, really painful, and my ear is leaking as it goes… but in between all of the “static” I’m actually getting small snippits of clearer sound. So I’m very hopeful. It feels good to actually hear things again, even if it is just in 1/4 second bursts. 😉
I’m envisioning a strong female warrior, clad in viking armor, hunting down and and slicing off bit after bit of that nasty ear troll. So it’s getting pretty raucous in there, which accounts for all the pain and clamour, as well as the fluids… But she’s hunting it down, and soon enough? This will all be over. LMAO
I am sooo looking forward to getting back to my work, I really do have the best clients in the world. Everyone has been so patient as I’ve been dealing with this infection. I’m hopeful that this is a small bit of light at the end of this very long nasty tunnel. I’ll keep you all posted! 🙂
