Doctors and Ears

I had an ear infection back in December, around New Year’s. It hurt, but I didn’t ever see anyone about it (not many places are open on Dec. 31st). A few weeks later, I had some issues with pressure in that ear.

Long story short, three doctors, five visits, one ear cleaning, one hearing test, two pressure tests, and four prescriptions later, I’m getting a head CT scan later today to find out what’s going on.

Most reasssuring words a doctor can speak?

“Well, if it were a head tumor, it would be so advanced at 8 months that you’d have other symptoms.”

That’s just wonderful.
