Uniqueness

We’re all a “one of a kind,” however, when it comes to medical issues, I find comfort when the health care provider knows what’s wrong.  I (DeAnna) have had many medical mysteries over the course of my short life.  I had a pancreatic problem that I suffered with for 24 years before finding a answer.  Once it was found, I found little comfort in knowing it was a rare condition.

I’m up against another bizarre medical issue.  The third week in December, I started a cold and allergies.  That led to my ears feeling full, lots of pressure and itching.  I’ve had a few adult ear infections and thought I must be starting one.  I went to see the wonderful nurse in our organization who thought it was an ear infection too.  I took azithromycin for five days and at the end of the treatment, I felt worse.  When the nurse looked in my ears she saw pimple looking things on and behind my eardrums.  I went to see a doctor.  He said he’d never seen anything like that and sent me to a lab for an ear culture.  The culture results were staph aureus.  Basically, the same staph from boils.  I started taking another antibiotic and was hopeful I’d start improving.  After five days on that 10 day prescription, I wasn’t feeling better, in fact worse.  I’m very fortunate to have medical friends whom I can contact and ask advice from.

I would like to ask for your prayers that this will clear up.  That the Great Physician touch my ears and heal them.
