The trip to the doctors went quite well. Unfortunately, the nurse advised us that we need to use olive oil in his ears for 4 days, prior to the syringing. So he needs to go back on Tuesday. Still he was exceptionally well behaved.
Then off to York for lunch. We had a walk round some of the shops. R*** spent some of his birthday money on some books and a DVD. We had lunch at the Slug & Lettuce. Again R*** was a star. However a proposed walk round the walls was not forthcoming.
More later ………
The hospital appointment went quite well. Youngest was extremely well behaved, and the Dr/Consultant was very positive. He is going to get some things to put the the R***’s ears, that might help. He seemed to agree that tinnitus could well be one of the problems. It appears that these ‘moulds’ have a low background noise, similar to running water. This it seems could help to counteract the other noise R*** may be experiencing. He did say, however, that it is quite possible that R*** may just pull the things out, the first time he used them. Then he would have to think again. R*** was very calm and relaxed, even during the the time the Dr was making the templates. This involved injecting a rubber/latex compound into his ears. Touch wood, he has not had an episode at all today, despite getting a bit frustrated with Movie Maker again.
Eldest went back to his flat today. The living room looked a right tip when we got there. I don’t think his flatmate understands the concept of tidy. Mrs H appeared to be okay with him going back, although she did not see the place. I suppose that is how students live. I never lived away until I was married, so I have nothing to compare. We have to learn to let go.
Still no reply from the Labour Party with regard to my subscription. It is now 4 days since I emailed them. Doesn’t give you a lot of confidence. Ironically, I received a letter from the Constituency party office today, inviting me to the hustings for the next candidate. Our MP is standing down before the next election. I’ve been invited (amongst many others) to elect the new candidate. I will decline.
Doctors tomorrow. I have to have my blood pressure measured. R*** on the other hand is having his ears syringed. I’m not too sure how that will go down. If he is half as good as he was today then there will not be a problem.
