Merry Christmas to You and Yours #Christmas2016 ( Momimhar posted on December 24th, 2016 )

Have yourself a Merry Christmas.

It’s amazing how time flies these days.  It’s Christmas time again. Are you traveling to see family and friends and spend time with them this holiday season? Or, are you staying home and host a big Christmas Party? Whichever it is, I bet it’s going be a wonderful event for everyone.

As for me and my family, we are celebrating Christmas Day at my parents-in-law’s home in Tyler.  While making this post, my dear husband is currently prepping the brisket to put in the oven in a few for tomorrow’s Christmas Day dinner.

This Christmas Eve, we attended the church service at 6:00 P.M.  When we got home after church and had dinner, we started the party.  The children could not wait to open their Christmas presents.  So after dinner, we head on and started the Christmas Party. They started opening gifts from the youngest kid to the oldest.  Boy, they were so excited and anxious!

Opening Christmas presents.

So, the young ones had a great time opening their presents.  I think everybody loved the stuff they got from the family.  K was so excited to see if Santa will give her nice gifts for Christmas.  We brought the reindeer food she received from the class Christmas Party at school since we’re at the grandparents’ house.  We had to make sure Santa will stop by and drop off her presents.  🙂 Na-Na helped her scatter the reindeer food in the backyard.  (FYI: Reindeer food is a mixture of oatmeal and glitters or sparkles.)

After the kids’ unwrapping presents, it was adults turn to open gifts and play the White Elephant Gift Exchange. We missed my brother-in-law and his wife in this year’s family Christmas Party because they’re both sick.  Nephew M is in Florida and niece M and her family will be coming over tomorrow, Christmas Day.

It was a fun evening. So thankful for family, love, time, and the blessings we received all year.

Ear Infection Can Cause Hearing Problems ( Momimhar posted on December 16th, 2016 )

Yup. That’s what’s happening to me right now.  I am having trouble hearing.  My hearing is not normal.  Due to a bad cold, my left ear is clogged since December 7th after I went to CVS Minute Clinic for a check-up because I had intense pain in my left ear yesterday morning.  I had bad wax build up years ago so I thought it was just that.  The health practitioner cleansed (flushed) both of my ears and checked each one to see what’s going on.  The diagnosis was an ear infection.  There’s redness in my left eardrum but no tear whatsoever.  She prescribed an antibiotic to be taken within ten days.  It should help unclogged the ear also.  Picking up my prescription would have been convenient for me if CVS accepted Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance.  So I transferred the prescription request to Tom Thumb instead.

Unfortunately, my left ear is still clogged as of the moment.  After a few days of taking the antibiotic, I decided to see my family doctor on the 13th.  The doctor said that there’s no more redness in my eardrum.  So she told me to stop taking the medication anymore.  She recommended me to see an ENT doctor.  And so, this afternoon I went to see a specialist from Lakeside Allergy in Forney.  Before I talked to the doctor, the nurse assistant did a few hearing tests on me.  ‘Figures out that my left eardrum wasn’t moving after doing pressure tests in both of my ears.  The doctor said there’s a fluid trapped behind my eardrum preventing it to move.  He prescribed me to take oral steriod, rinse my sinuses using saline rinse, and use steroid nasal spray.  The steroid medicine will help treat the swelling of tube behind my nose so the fluid will drain.

This really bothers me.  Eardrum not moving? Oh no!  My hearing is hollow and feels like I am on an airplane all the time.  Sucks!

I am looking forward to getting my hearing back to normal the soonest possible time.
