It's been an interesting week so far. If you've been following my blog the last week or so, I mentioned I had a cold. Well, as everyone got better, I got worse. Then on Monday morning I woke up with the most horrible ear ache ever. I pretty much didn't get any sleep. And of course this had to happen on a holiday, when no doctors are open. I tried to wait it out, even tried a couple of home remedies, but the pain kept getting worse..and let's face it, I'm a big baby. So into Urgent care we went.
After a semi-awake receptionist screwed up my paper work, I found out I had a bulging eardrum, from a bad ear and sinus infection. And if that's not fun enough, while waiting for the prescriptions and discharge papers, I was struck with the most intense pain ever.
My ear drum ruptured!
It was a tough few hours. I pretty much cried like a baby. Seriously, I was begging for my mama.. Thankfully, a big pop came, and soon after so did relief. However, in it's place was drainage, buzzing, and deafness. I still have some pain, but not as bad.
Please keep me in prayer and thoughts. It's not easy caring for two active little toddlers when you don't feel well and can't hear good. Not to mention, with the days to our dream vacation to Disney are dwindling down, I can't help but worry about flying. Oh how I am looking forward to this trip, but I am now terrified to fly with the pressured during take off and landing.
Has anyone ever had a ruptured ear drum?
How long did it take to heal?
