I've got old ears!!! LOL!
I'm almost a week out from having my ear worked on. It has been rather interesting. I thought I'd go in get it done and be done with it. DUH!!!! I have dermal glue stuck in my hair around and on top of my ear and it sticks straight out and hangs up my glasses. I look like a freak!!!! I finally had to go to the hair dressers and get a "boy" cute so that they could cut off some of the glue.
My sister and I had German measles when I was six years old and it had permanently damages our ears. It had left scarred pockets in the ear and those get infected and that extra fluid perforates our ear drums. My sister has permanently lost the inside of her ear and years of working in a factory has greatly affected her other ear's hearing. The surgery wasn't too bad....loved the Versed! But, didn't know that I wouldn't be able to bend over for a week, would have a metal taste on one side of my mouth and vertigo. When your eyes start rolling in your head, causes you to be dizzy and you get nauseous real fast!!! Like a ride from an amusement park!! I have some kind of shiny metal thingy in my ear, my RN niece found yesterday, when she was trying to clean up my yucky brown ear. They wanted me to be off three weeks, but I can only get coverage for one week, so that should be interesting.
The darnest part is, my DH is really in need of hearing aides and so when I yell at him so that he can hear my really important thoughts, he has to yell back. I didn't know that my "good" ear had been affected also, just mild hearing loss. Here is one of the conversations from last night. Honey, it is out on the dash. Reply: Why did you throw it in the trash! Me: I didn't it is on the dash. Him: Well, it's gone because I already took out the trash! I told him I saw a small black ant, and he wanted to know what was wrong with his pants!!! I better get my hearing back or I'm going to go mad!!! LOL!
Guard your ears and your hearing, because it is a mad, mad world out there!
