Middle Ear(th)

I went to the doc this morning after two solids days of hearing absolutely nothing out of my right ear. I got up this morning feeling really pretty good. I know I have an infection in my ear somewhere but I feel good. I worked out first thing and then got ready for the visit. I fluffed my hair, dabbed on a little makeup and was off in my little red car on this gorgeous morning.

The nurse came in and took my blood pressure and, uh oh, for the first time in my life, except for being 9 months pregnant, my blood pressure was on the high side. I have got to get it together and start the walking/jogging again, after I get well. I was doing so well until I quit Jazzercise, 5 days a week. Now I'm only doing 2 days with the personal trainer. The problem is that my food intake has stayed the same with less exercise. Somehow I knew that was not going to work so tomorrow morning it is back to oatmeal for breakfast, skinned, boneless chicken, salad and no dressing. I've got to get back on the losing weight thing again. Actually, I've put on about 12 pounds since The Hubby's accident.

Back to the doc visit. I have a middle ear infection. You know, about a month ago I had a really dizzy day where I was just spinning. BIG CLUE! He gave me a prescription for antibiotic and antibiotic ear drops. I go back in a couple of weeks and if it is not better then it is off to the Ear, Nose and Throat doctor. PRAY, please pray it gets better. I so want to get well. I've been dealing with this sick stuff for way, way too long and I was doing so well. I have to definitely get better before June as we are going (flying) to Ireland and then taking the QE2(I think) back from London to NY for 5 days. Oooo, have to get better.

I'm off today and what a beautiful day for it. I've stopped by the house for lunch, get my painting supplies then to my class. I'm doing a double class to make up for one I missed a couple of weeks ago. Four hours of painting, YIPEE!

feel better - but, have you been taking over the counter meds for the cold/stopped up ear? if so, that can artificially raise your blood pressure.

and that vacation sounds heavenly - you do have to get better soon.

I have so much sympathy for anyone dealing with problems of the ears! I had my fair share growing up. I ended up having reconstructive surgery done on my eardrum. Not fun!

I pray you are feeling completely well SOON! =)

Oh inner ear stuff sucks .. I hope you get better fast .. and check out WW and see if they cant help you find good eating with variety ... I know how hard it is to be 'good' when you have to eat the same old/same old every day ...

Thanks everyone.

Char-I never thought about that but I have been. Makes sense. I'll remember to tell him in two weeks.

The antibiotics should knock it out in quick order. You'll be fine in no time!
