Determined to write

A visit to the doctor on Sunday morning confirmed that I had a severe ear infection. Dutifully, I purchased the medication prescribed and headed home.

Today, there is no pain but the stuffy feeling lingers. My ear is constantly ringing and when I speak, it seems as if instead of going forth, my words are echoing back in my head. It's the weirdest thing I've ever experienced.

In my mind I am preparing for a life of diminished hearing. For now, I can hear pretty well. The only problem is that because of the echo, when I think I am speaking loudly enough for someone to hear, they tell me that my lips are moving but they don't hear a word.

It this persists, I'll visit the doctor again.

It is a bit of a struggle to concentrate on my writing, but I am determined with God's help to write.

Cheryl,

So sorry to hear about your ear infection and its resulting discomfort and maddening echo. Hope you'll be well again really, really soon!

Best wishes,
Jeanne
