DD2 arrived just as I was finished putting the breakfast pots away. Shortly afterwards DB retired to bed with a dizzy, so I was glad she was there.
Book in, was told by the booking clerk, very surlily that the consultant was running late, I think she expected me to turn round and walk out. I told her I would wait, I had waited long enough for the appointment and I was not prepared to go back on the waiting list again.
Another hearing test and then about 10 minutes after I got back to the waiting room I was called through. After a consultation and a look into both ears, I was hoovered out, it was not very comfortable and made my ear ache. Outcome, there is a deep seated infection in my ear, I have to go in as a day patient to LRI and have it looked at under anaesthetic. What fun that will be especially as you usually have to be there for 8am and I live 30 miles away. I can see me having to have a taxi there and back!!
I took DB's compression stockings off this morning and washed them, his right foot is ok, but his left is all colours of the rainbow and still quite swollen. I have put a pair of his own compression stocking on, will put the others back when they are dry.
I took DD2 home and went for the drops the Dr prescribed for me, I have to put them in 3 times a day for a week. My ear did not hurt until he started hoovering it out, now it is aching, so I have taken some pain killers and put the drops in.
Supper tonight, fish, chips and sweetcorn, there is one banana left for OH, not sure what I will have.
