I am suppose to be on the road to Calgary by now, for my most recent visit to the Life Together House there. However, it seems that I have developed a bit of a strange health situation. Strange because it never happens to me.
During the day yesterday over the length of the day I began to loose my hearing in my right ear. That troubles me quite a bit because I never have problems with my ears. Well at least the hearing bit, I could have used smaller ears when I was younger.
It seems to have continued to get worse through the night to the point where I can only detect heavy sounds in that ear. I don't feel sick in any other way so it has an effect in me that troubles me more emotionally than physically I think. Listening is important to me and I think I'd rather go without sight than without hearing.
And the whistling that now fills that ear with noise is enough to make me crazy. It's even worse when I'm sitting in silence because it fills the silence with shrill squealing noises.
Like I said, it's bugging me more emotionally than physically.
So instead of being on the road to Calgary where I am booked to listen with people, I am scheduled for the Doctor this afternoon and hopefully he can tell me it's all just a temporary thing and I can pull myself back from all the paths my mind is racing down as I sit in this noisy silence.
If you can spare a thought or a prayer, that would be a generous gift to me.
And so in the meantime with Calgary rescheduled to tomorrow and Friday, I'll spend time here getting things ready for Sunday. With a planned power outage in The Field this afternoon, I'll need to type like a crazy person, before the computer and lights and water well and garage doors all cease to work.
