Hit & Miss for few days - SherylC
« on: December 19, 2017, 06:42:09 am »
I have a raging Outer ear infection at the moment which has not only effected my ear, but face, jaw and neck too. It's all very painful and swollen.  Even when I lower my head it hurts. GP said she has never seen a ear so misshapen before which was very comforting to me! lol. GP drew a line around my ear and told me to return to her immediately if the swelling extends beyond the line. I've posted my "normal" ear and the "swollen" ear.
Once the Penicillin has kicked in (only started today) I should be back to normal in time for Christmas.
In the meantime I will be in and out when feeling up to it. :)

Thanks all for your good wishes. So kind, thank you Grethe! lol

Well I had to go back to the GP this morning as it had spread outside of the lines.

A different GP has changed the antibiotics and re drawn a new line.  Not sure I see the point of having new guidelines drawn (?)  but will see the GP yet again tomorrow if it continues to spread.

I bet I know what the problem is!!!  Your body wanted to turn into an Elf for Christmas and the ears were just trying to grow to the correct shape!!  :xmas81: :xmas81: :xmas81:   

It does look a bit on the fat side though. :xmas64:

I love those pretty flowers, thanks MaryLou. Ha ha yes, my ear has taken on an "Elf" kind of look....or a Cauliflower, not sure which! lol 

Thanks Mary. Swelling is down a little bit today.


 


Keep on smiling! It will make people wonder what you're up to!! :)
