On the road to recovery?

Two weeks ago, I wrote a short piece explaining why I hadn’t posted my usual weekly blog post the day before and warning that I might not have recovered enough to write one for the following Wednesday, and so it came to pass. Much too late, I noticed through the general fog of a heavy virus infection of the head that I was deaf in my right ear, so last Tuesday it was off to the ear, nose, and throat specialist. It turns out that I have a heavy middle ear infection/inflammation, so a new course of treatment and a return to the doctor a week later. Well readers it didn’t work. So new course of treatment starting yesterday.

For the last ten days, or longer, I’ve had tinnitus, I’m deaf on my right ear and not hearing too good on the left. My head feels like it’s stuffed with cotton wool and my sense of balance is almost non-existent. Not the ideal situation to write intelligent #histSTM posts. I’m actually feeling better than I did a week ago and, with the hope that the new course of medication is going to work, I am slowly working towards resuming posting next Wednesday.

Till then you’ll have to content yourself with reading some old one!

    Sorry to hear this news. Take care and heal quickly.

  4. Well, to be honest, rereading your blogs are more informative than most things I read, but then I’m a slow learner.
    Hope your recovery is quick and complete.

    Best wishes

    Growing old is not fun.

  6. There’s bound to be a terrific post about your journey out of tinnitus. Looking forward to reading it.

    That all sucks, Thony, though I am heartened that you are at least feeling somewhat better.
