Nothing like deprivation to boost appreciation

I am currently sitting listening to a Christmas cantata. I cannot fully appreciate the fulness of the voices or music. At my last physical exam, the first after my release after my hospital stay, the doctor saw that I had an excess amount of ear wax. He sent the nurse to clean out my ears. The pain was excruciating and didnt result in the full cleaning. Meanwhile, both of my ears became stopped up and every sound is muffled–like Charlie Brown’s teacher’s voice.

I like music. All kinds. Especially classical pieces around the holiday season. Sitting here and trying to appreciate the music is an exercise in frustration. Although I cant appreciate the music, I do appreciate my hearing…or what I used to have, anyway.

I have another appointment 29 December. I need to get this fixed.
