Our life in February
So, a couple of months ago Brian had a few days where he was dizzy and a little uncoordinated with a plugged ear. The episode passed and things went back to normal. The ear stayed plugged so we rinsed it out with warm water and peroxide and that seemed to help. At the end of January beginning of February Brian got a cold followed by what we were told was an ear infection, with the symptoms of dizziness/ nausea, ear blockage and the ringing. Brian went on an antibiotic and ear drops hoping they would help the symptoms. After a week they hadn't helped and his dizzy episodes were getting worse so we took him back into the Doctor and were told there were a few explanations for his symptoms. The first and least invasive is positional vertigo, the next is meniere's disease, and after seeing an ENT (ear, nose & throat) specialist were told it could also be a tumor. So after several visits and an MRI, balance and hearing test...the doctor will tell us on Monday. But until then if you could keep Brian in your prayers and ask that he might be able to return to work soon we would appreciate it very much.
