I spent 3-1/2 hours in the E.R. today because of this stupid ear infection. I'm sure the infection is gone but I still can't hear and the numbness in my face is driving me batty! Anyway, good news is there is no infection; bad news is there is a mass on the parietal bone compressing the nerves - that's what causing hearing loss and facial paralysis. I'm having an MRI tomorrow to get a better look at it. The ER doc talked with my oncologist and they agree that it is most likely breast cancer mets. Unfortunately, chemo won't pass through the blood brain barrier so I'm looking at some kind of brain radiation. Update after I see the doc tomorrow. Please pray!
It's in God's hands and so am I!!!
