Seriously, the appointment with the ENT consultant yesterday was a success. Fluid drained from the ear in question, and a grommet fitted. Hearing returned almost immediately.
All of this was good, as today's lunch appointment with two 'ol' girls' from the company was made all the more special given that Colin could hear what was being said. We both enjoyed this very much and hope one of them finds that special elasticated-waisted wedding dress we discussed and the other can get the Poundland wedding pressie list off her friend!!
And so to Friday.......when the next MRI scan is due to take place. Just wish it didn't take so long to get the results the few yards to the hospital!
