Ear today, gone tomorrow.

For about a week or so, we’d noticed that A had been tugging on her ear a lot.  When we asked her if it hurt, she always said no.  She never complained about it, but it was obvious that something was going on.  So, while the kids were out of school last Friday for a teacher work day, I finally took her to see the doctor.


This is what he pulled out of A’s ear:


Note my finger to give a sense of scale.

Needless to say, after pulling this wad of … something … out of her ear, A felt much better.  The doctor thinks an insect may have flow into her hear, gotten stuck, and her body compensated by completely mummifying the bug in ear wax.

And checking Google, the phrase “mummifying the bug in ear wax” has never appeared on the Internet.

    OUCH…..knowing you, I’ll bet people can now find the phrase “mummifying the bug in ear wax” on the Internet…..yet again, maybe not. Glad that you took her to the doctor… parents have to not only listen to the kids, but have to “watch” as well. Way to go.
