I almost went the ENT clinic yesterday (Tuesday), since my ear was hurting a lot, but I decided to stick it out one more day.
Today (Wednesday), the ENT doctor said my ear looks better. He noted that, though the process is slow, there is improvement.
So, I get to...... "come back next week."
Meanwhile, I am done with the oral antibiotics and back to the antibiotic ear drops.
The hole in my eardrum is closed, much to my relief! (I suspect it closed last Thursday)
Doctors do not treat it as such a big deal, even if the hole does not close. The only thing it changes is you are not allowed to SCUBA dive. Now, it is true that I do not SCUBA dive.... yet. But that is one of the things on my "things I want to do" list....
And, since I am pouting, I will just say that this was supposed to be my week off!
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
