The doctor reported a perforated eardrum; an absess. At approximately 1:00pm, EST, the subject received the first of five doses of antibiotic.
I haven't been able to hear normally for nine days. I was awakened this morning at 2:00am with pain in my ear. I thought the pain might go away so I sat downstairs until 2:30. It wasn't lessening any, so I took an ibuprofen and waited for it to take effect so I could go back to sleep.We went to the doctor this morning and he gave me two prescriptions for antibiotics. It seems a shame to have fought it off this long and now give in, but I don't know what else I could have done.
Tonight it's off to DE for a concert tomorrow. (The generator is fixed!!! Wheee!) Then we stay in NJ for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I'm very much looking forward to it, and I'm hoping my ear feels better once the antibiotics kick in. Thank God that they are available.
