The entire time I was in Orlando Damon and I were putting on brave faces. We spoke everyday and everyday I asked, “How are you feeling?” And he would give an answer that was a long the lines of “Better.” I would do the same. But the truth is, we are still sick.
While I was living it up in Orlando my illness turned into a raging sinus infection. Flying home yesterday wasn’t too bad, but all day yesterday I was dealing with sinus pressure that was probably altered due to the flight. I feel a lot better today, but need a bit more rest.
Last night our family of three ended up at the ER because Damon’s ear was causing him off the charts pain and leaking. His ear was leaking. Turns out he had a ruptured ear drum and ear infection. The other ear drum had probably ruptured the day before.
It will all heal, but we take ear problems with Damon very seriously. His ear drums are a mess from ear infections during childhood. His sister has a hearing loss due to illness in college. And when he was diagnosed with Ménière’s disease a few years ago, it made us even more cautious.
Fuller still has a cough and congestion, but overall he acts like nothing is keeping him down.
Damon keeps saying how much he hates winter and right now, I have to agree. This really sucks. Our family needs to heal.
