Feeling a wee bit poorly today….

butterfliesladyaddmainpage I am in bed with another ear infection in both ears.  I have no hearing in my right ear so I rely on my left, which is very acute, to make up for any loss.  This last week I have been putting up with a ‘bug’ which took my voice away, to the relief of Bryan I might add.    ‘Peace and quiet rules’ he muttered. My voice came back again a couple of days ago; Well it is croaky, but at least it doesn’t sound as though I am being strangled to death! 
This morning I woke up to both ears discharging.  Blood from one and ‘stuff’ from the other.  My hearing is again sounding as though everything is away in the distance.
This has been coming and going since last December and I have had antibiotics for it, which knock it on the head until times like these. I guess I am going to have to see the doctor on Monday and ask for him to send me to my ENT specialist.  I usually have an annual MOT done at the hospital every year but this is getting a wee bit out of hand for my own practitioner I think. We are not getting anywhere fast!
A good old siphon with his magic machine, which gives me the spins, usually does the trick.  Then some drops to dry it all up.  This time I have a sort of feeling the blood could be coming from a mastoidectomy cavity. If that is possible.  We will see soon enough.
I hope I feel better by this Tuesday as I have paid for tickets to go and see John Williams, the classical guitarist playing at the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal.
I hope this link works below.  If not I’m sure if you are interested you can Google it on UTube.
It’s lovely weather today.  Tomorrow is said to be more of the same then some rain on Monday. We can’t really complain with this recent spell of spring weather here in the Lakes

Don't forget to turn off the music in my sidebar first.

My dear dear Jeanie, I am so sorry about your ears. I so enjoyed our wee chat and found great strength from my good friends who are so loving to me. I am praying hard that the earache goes soon and at least the Dr. gets you to ENT as an emergency appointment..I do so hope you get to the concer on Tuesday and that you can hear a little if not all of his beautiful playing. Thank you for sharing that lovely melody ...
Much Love to you both.
Sybil xx
PS Around 1.30 on Tuesday if you are able please give an extra thought to me and send a virtule hug...

Your ailment in the ears does not sound like fun. I hope you can find a doctor to treat it and clear up the problem of hearing! My hearing is impaired but not from infection as I don't have any. But can't seem to get to the doctor to get it tested. My G. Grandmother lost some of her hearing at my age. She seemed to hear about like I do. I wonder if it is the weather there that promotes the infections? Phoenix is so warm and dry I have had almost none of that for some years. I am sorry to read you are so uncomfortable. Hopefully spring will bring a respite.
