Intriguing, Yet Incredibly Nasty

The son has been complaining about his ears. So, today we went to the ENT doctor.  I wish I had taken the camera...next to his chair were all these metal instruments. One was "L" shaped and was a tongue depressor of sorts. I was thinking... medieval? They had a stack of these, just like the ones in the picture below.

He has narrow car canals, the doctor informed me, we need to go into the other room to use a machine.
I wanted to ask, Is that why he can't hear me when I'm calling him to set the table?

We go from medieval to modern technology. I'm. Not. Kidding.  The son lays on his side while the doctor uses these binocular like camera that shows a picture up on a flat screen TV.  I sat and stared at the inside of my son's ear. I saw the ear drum! The real ear drum. Of course, I wouldn't have known had the doctor not told me...but I saw it.  Isn't that so cool?
But, I also saw all the yellow sticky discharge. And I witnessed that sticky substance getting sucked up in a tiny vacuum. GROSS!!!
It was like a live shooting of Discovery Channel.
So incredibly nasty, yet too intriguing to look away.

So, the diagnosis? He still has a bit of an ear infection, but we now ear drops. Yay and Goodie!

That must have been quite the visual experience. Ear drum eh? At least there wasn't entire brass band in his ear :-)
Have a peaceful week.

Hee! Hee! Wondered if anyone would catch that phrase. I love Eve for it. And as for the viewing...you would have loved it..well, not the gross part...the techy science part of it.
