I woke up a little before 4 yesterday morning with a sharp pain in my right er. Cindy got up and warmed some oil and dripped in it, but it didn’t help. I took a hot washcloth and held it on my right forehead and over my eye, thinking it was sinuses… Cindy heated some water and put it i a hot water bottle and I lay in the chair with that on there and she went to work… I drifted off to sleep after a bit and woke later when i got a phone call… not much of an ache, but my ear didn’t feel right… so this morning the ear is pretty much deaf, so i went in to the clinic (gelled up the tractor, trying to feed before i left, should have just used the team)… Doc sez the ear drum is real red, but she doesn’t think it’s broken.. just some infection, gave me a shot in the upper hip, which hurts like the dickens! I got some antibiotics and she said it should clear them up but it will take a long time for all the fluid to drain off from the ear, so the weird deafness I am experiencing in that ear will be awhile going away… I am the epitome of a guy who is deaf in one ear and can’t hear out of the other…. oh well, this too shall pass… Tate had an accident with his work pickup this morning… sounds like he totaled it out, but no one was harmed… said the officer told them both they should be ticketed for over driving the road conditions, but didn’t ticket either driver… I am sure glad he didn’t get hurt.. suppose he will be pickup shopping…. Hope was shooting a commercial at the Bakery today and i was supposed to go in for that, but the Doctor took precedents…
