The last few days have gone quite quickly – I am fine but am trying to take things slowly. Lots of messages from family and friends and visitors too. It has been an eventful week!
Although I am only hearing through my left ear I am managing quite well. It is a bit difficult when there are more than three people but I am still coping. Sometimes the voices sound a bit tinny and are difficult to interpret but on the whole I feel I’m doing well.
Amazingly it is 5 days since the operation – how time flies!! My head has stopped feeling tight and pins and needles in my outer ear are going. Occasionally there is the beginning of a slight headache but it doesn't materialise. I have been very lucky and had no pain at all.
Since my aunt died last October, I have been grinding my teeth - terrible!! I am really trying very hard to break this habit now! It's very odd, sometimes I don't even realise that I'm doing it. Today has been good with very little teeth grinding. I must work hard at it - having the wound behind my ear does actually help me to be more aware of this. It must stop!!
On Wednesday I drove my car - very carefully - no problems! Life is getting back to normal.
