More Surgery

So I had my monthly check up with the ear surgeons yesterday, and isn’t it amazing, I have to have another ear operation as my ear hasn’t healed as well as expected.

After my last operation, everything seemed ok, until 2 months later when I was going for my (then) final check up.  They discovered a web like tissue growing over my ear canal.  Not life threatening no, but behind the webbing the could see something on my ear drum.

This something is called a pearl and is like a pimple or little cyst almost…but they can’t see it clearly because of the webbing.  So guess what they want to do to my ear.

Cut back my ear canal to the bone, pack it with stuff, and then let the skin grow back without the webbing…they hope.  I will need general, not an overnight stay though, and I will need to visit the dr weekly for check ups on my ear.  I should be able to be back at work after 2 days and the surgery only takes 30 minutes.

Not happy about this surgery at all.  I would just like to spend one year without having surgery of any kind!  ONE YEAR!


fingers crossed :D

Have sent in all our paperwork for the refinance/debt consolidation…fingers are so deeply crossed I am scraping bone.

This will really help us out and I am just not able to express how good it will be if it goes through!!

My ear is healing well, and I think the surgery was a success, it sounds like I am underwater (which is better than hearing nothing) and it is damn itchy!!!  I have never really been great with dealing with itchy wounds….so this is nuts!!  I just want to shove a fork in there and scratch around for a little while!!!  Only 2 more weeks before the sponge gets removed, so I am hopeful that itching will stop soon.


Going into the Eye and Ear hospital tomorrow morning for my ear surgery.  I was on the waiting list and finally got advised last week I would be admitted on my husband’s birthday and then not released until the next day.

I am very sad about this.  It is my husband’s 30th birthday, a big one in my eyes, and I am going to miss the entire thing, and not only that I have to inconvenience him by needing to be at the hospital by 7am.  My mum has offered her place for tonight and she will drop me in, however hubby wants me there on his birthday morning…even if it is only for a few moments 🙂

I am grateful I gave him his birthday presents before his day now, as I would not have been there to enjoy it anyway.  I got him a Yankee’s Jersey from New York – with Rivera’s name on the back (one of his favourite players) and since Easter when I gave it to him, I think I have seen him out of it once!!  I also bought him a subscription to a monthly whiskey club.  You get a whiskey a month to try out and there is no obligation to buy.  Check it out if you have any whiskey loving friends out there…. Singlemalt Club and the last present I bought him was an iPad2.  He even did a little happy dance when he got it, but he was so excited to finally have one.  He has been wanting one since the first ones came out and we just haven’t been able to afford it! So I got him a snap on cover and the free engraving on it as well.

So I think I did relatively well on the birthday present front for his 30th and I am kind of hoping that makes up for my absence on the actual day.

I am going to have all of next week off to recover and then hopefully all back to normal and no deafness….if it goes to plan, I will be able to hear in a weeks time!!!  YAYAYAYAYAY.  I am soooo damn excited at the prospect.  I have to head to the supermarket shortly and do the shopping for the week so I don’t have to go far whilst I am off to find food!
