1. That I am a total wuss when it comes to pain in my ear. I was shedding tears yesterday at the ENT. Maybe it is because I thought that the doctor was just going to look in my ear. Instead he did a surgical procedure to put together my broken ear drum. It was very scary, painful, and did I say scary!?!?!?
2. If you have a damaged ear canal on top of a broken ear drum, it is very, very painful. Enough said.
3. Hydrocodone is very helpful!
4. Homeade cards from your kids makes any dreary day brighter.
5. When you call a colleague to tell her you can't come back to work but instead a student answers the phone, you will look like an idiot because you can't stop crying.
