After my visit to the infectious disease specialist in Toronto on Thursday, I'm none the wiser. Originally he doubted whether it was cellulitis that I've had three times in the last two years. After receiving all my hospital records he's now satisfied that it was cellulitis after all. He doesn't know why it has hit me twice in my face and then the last time in my right arm and elbow. It's a mystery.
I've had this ear infection for 10 days now and the ear drops seem to make it worse. With a 40% hearing loss in my left ear already, the infection has almost rendered me deaf...temporarily at least. At times that could be a good thing...I think. Pardon?
Please pray that one of these days I will feel well again. We're thinking that a naturopath (sp?) might be the way to go but the one who Carol and Matthew have visited seems hesitant to take me on. I'm too much of a challenge I guess. We'll see!
Tomorrow morning (Thanksgiving Sunday) I'm speaking at the communion service at our church and then in the second part of the service we're presently PRAY FOR THE PETES again. I pray that I will be able to hear well enough to speak. That sounds weird doesn't it. It's like saying I pray that I will see well enough to smell.
We had Thanksgiving dinner tonight with Carol's side of the family at Elim Lodge. What a spread they put out for the guests!
Tomorrow we are going to the Fisher side of the family thanksgiving dinner at mom's house. It's a good thing that we're eating out this weekend because the oven at home quit on us yesterday.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING, my Canadian pals and God's best to our pals around the world. Wish I could sit down for a cup of chai tea with Felisol in Norway. Someday maybe!
Lots of love,
The hard of hearing pilgrim, David
