Oh the Joy of Sound

Well kids, I did it. I went to work today and worked a whole shift. It's my first full shift since May 2nd. Crazy!

I'm exhausted, but it felt good to be out of the house and doing things again. My voice is thrashed again from having to talk so much, but I am seeing (or should I say hearing?) some improvement in other areas...

Yup... My ears have started to pop.

My right ear popped for the first time last night, and let me tell you, I thought I was going to die! (Imagine that obit... 'After a long struggle with the rhino virus, Mrs. Gamgee succumbed to a fatal popping of her right ear...') It felt like someone was driving a hot poker right through my ear drum. After the pain faded, though, the release of pressure was fabulous! My left ear has popped a few times today, which created a few interesting moments with my staff... imagine me clutching the side of my head after sneezing and one of my retiree part-timers staring at the grimace on my face... not easy to explain to a very prim 70 year old lady.

So, I'm on the mend... just in time for the phantom tww symptoms to kick in. *sigh* I KNOW that the odds are very seriously against anything coming of this cycle... but now that we've been given the 'all clear' I hate having to wait! Oh well... Come on AF!

Off to take a nap...

  1. Ouch! Glad your ear(s) is feeling better, but sorry it's a painful recovery.

    Congrats on returning to the work force. Sounds like you're quite a trooper! :)


Hobbits are social creatures, and love hearing from friends old and new. Pull up a comfy chair and let's get to know one another.
