Last night the girls and I were playing beauty shop while Thad and Ryan were at hockey. All of the sudden Olivia put a qtip in my ear so far that I was in severe pain. I jumped up and was running around freaking out. Then I felt blood coming out. I called ask a nurse, and she told me to go right to the ER. By now Olivia is crying, Kate is scared, and I am freaking out.
To make a long story short, I likely have a perforated ear drum. The ER doctor couldn't tell for sure because there is so much blood in there. He said flushing it out would have put me through the roof with pain, so I get to go to the ENT on Monday. Currently, I can't hear out of my left ear, it's ringing like crazy, and at times it's very painful.
This is one for the scrapbooks!
