On the verge....

My ear is about to pop! My ear is about to pop! My ear has been "crackling" all day and one of the audiology GAs at work told me that means it's probably close to finally opening back up. Since I got home from work it's gotten even more crackly and I've even had milliseconds where my ear almost cleared. So I'm waiting on pins and needles here waiting for relief.

I can't tell you how altered I've been for the past week and a half. It's hard keeping track of all 3 kids with just one ear. This evening without even realizing it, Caroline and Bryce escaped off the deck because my left ear was turned toward them and I didn't even hear them open the gate. I would have definitely heard it had my hearing not been compromised. And then, with all the yelling the kids do, I have to concentrate even harder to hear sometimes. Plus, with my inner ear being full of fluid, loud yelling actually distorts the noise and makes it worse.

So with any luck another day or so will clear this ear out.
