Well, this is lovely...

I woke up at 5 AM and my left ear, which until yesterday had been giving me no trouble, was very sore. I made the mistake of touching it, and it was like someone drove an icepick into it. When I got up at 8, I discovered that I was bleeding. So, it was off to the emergency clinic, where I learned that I have both an upper respiratory infection and an outer ear infection (what they typically call "swimmer's ear"), and I might very well have punctured my left eardrum. So, I have antibiotics to take, one orally and one dripped into my ear. The doctor was also very nice and gave me a prescription for Norvasc, for the hypertension that I've been trying to ignore all this time.

I'll tell you, not being able to hear, even a little bit, is scary. Your prayers and good thoughts would be most appreciated. Thanks.
