For the past 3 weeks or so I have had this really ithcy ear and then I get a deep ear pain. It is intermittent. So I went to my GP yesterday. Well, I saw a nurse practitioner because my Dr. had retired as of Dec 31st. I liked the lady and it turns our she lives on my street but I really didn't get anywhere with this pain/itching. This same thing happened last year and I was sent to a specialist who couldn't find anything wrong with the ear. And he believe that it could be my MS. This new NP that I saw didn't really even entertain the thought of MS and she actually said I was too cute to have MS and looked at me like I was joking. Now first things first, I am not that cute and I DO have MS. Before she even looked in my ear she told me what was wrong and that I was too old to have an inner ear infection that it was just an infected ear canal. It didn't look too bad just a little roughed up. I'm sure that it was roughed up because I have been sticking everything under the sun inthere to itch it. She gave me some drops which turned out to be the same drop I had already been using that the specialist gave me last year that didn't work. So I am back to square 1. Is this and MS ear thing? Is it possible? Is there such a thing? It is an intermittent stabbing pain and an intermittent terrible itch? I see my neurologist again next month if it doesn't let up I guess I'll ask but what a pain.
On a sweeter note, I had a big Valentines dinner on Saturday night. It was a sit down dinner for 12. It was so great. I rented 2 round tables all the dishes and silverware and linens. I made beef wellington, asparagus bundles and twice baked potatoes for the main entree. Appetizers were brushetta, grilled shrimp cocktail and rumachi. Dessert was heart hasped brownies, chocolate mousse raspberry parfaits and Red velvet cupcakes. It was awesome. 16 bottles of wine were consumed by the drinkers of the group. After dinner we just hung out around the table and played apples to apples and it was just fun! I haven't had fun like that in a while. It was great.
This weekend I am going to Belhurst Castle with my husband and my best friend and her husband. It is a combo Valentines Day, Anniversary and Birthday get away. It was mine and my husbands anniversary this month and my BFF's husbands birthday. It should be a really good time. I can't wait. Well, that's all for now.
