Have you ever heard of someone being admitted to hospital with an ear infection? No, me neither.
Well that was until this weekend! I developed a severe ear infection which steadily got worse needing micro-suction of the ear canal followed by the placing of a wick in my ear canal which is immediately in front of the ear drum.
Oh this all started at the out of hours GP service and over a few days progressed to the Royal Albert Edward Infirmary.
The care on the SAU ward and Langtree Ward has been really good and its been nice to see so many young nursing staff making a real difference with older patients needing additional and specialised care.
Anyway, the good news is that my badly behaved body is now responding to the antibiotics albeit I am due to stay in hospital for another day.
Think the issue is that the swelling in my face, jaw and ear had caused some mild palsy where the corner of my lip has drooped and my fabulous registrar Mrs B wants a ct scan to check everything.
Not the end of the world and I am still running the Wigan 10k this coming Sunday
