Orifice Tombola - Part 2 of 2

...continuing from yesterday.

I spent quite a lot of time waiting for my turn then and during the free time, I started thinking about a few things, though some maybe irrelevant or unrelated.

1) Is this me catching a glimpse of my future? An old man who is going to be hard of hearing? Sure with modern technology, I could get by this problem with hearing implant but was that suddenly a flash-forward of what is to become of me?

2) My hearing impairment was slightly unique in the sense that while I couldn't hear the outside world, I could hear my insides perfectly. For those who are deaf and reading this blog, is it the same for you guys or is your world completely silent both the inside and outside? Please enlighten me.

3) Am I ever going to get my hearing back? I am coming into the 4th day of this hard-of-hearing predicament and it seems that the ailment isn't letting up. Is this be permanent?
I could have sworn, I felt my left ear also starting to cloud. Paranoia?

Apparently according to my mom, her sister (who just passed away a couple of weeks ago) lost (though not completely) her hearing after catching a bad cold too, albeit when she was much older that I am now.
Could this be hereditary?

So anyway, all this thinking came to an abrupt halt when it was finally my turn to get my hearing test done and the results showed that my right side is impaired (duh... I think I would have figured that out myself!) but the charts showed that my ability to pick up low frequencies were shot i.e. my mom's nagging would still be crystal. Great......

So with the result sheets in hand, I went back to my doctor and again, joining the back of the queue. After a while going through the charts, I was prescribed a total of 5 drugs to be administered over 3 days as some of these drugs may not be given together. So another scribble of a new sheet and again I was dispatched to the 4th floor to pay money to get the "Paid" stamp before going to the ground floor to pick up my drip and medication and then it is off to the IV Drip station where they prepared my drip and stuck the needle in. Thereafter, I was supposed to carry my own drip and find a place to sit down. Good thing all the chairs have a rack for you to hang your drip above you. Otherwise, everybody would be doing a Statue of Liberty stance.

In Ch1na where most of the women don't shave, NOT A PRETTY SIGHT multiplied by 147 of them in the same room in clear sight.

Siao lah. The cold has f87ked up your throat and your ears are connected. It's temporary. The weather probably just makes it worse. So stay off the juice and glug orange juice instead ok!!! Get well soon.

Pam: Contraction at 30 weeks is definitely false alarm. I won't be too worried about that. Still it is better to let the doctor know about it.

it was a false alarm - but it ended up with me in the hospital for a night, with muscle relaxant, antibiotics and steriod injections for baby to survive - so I don't think I would be that dismissive. and now I've been signed off work till baby comes coz of danger of bleeding (I have placenta praevia too - placenta hasn't moved, even though 90% of women's do, so I'm definitely scheduled for a c-section at 38 weeks).
