So it turns out it wasn’t just shower water in my ears. After not being able to hear properly for a few days, I went to the doctor and it turns out that, on top of mono, I now have an ear infection in both ears. The fluid from the infection means that I have lost about 50%-60% of my hearing. The doctor gave me antibiotics and said it should be about 2-3 weeks before my ears are back to their normal state. Since hearing is kind of an important part of making a record, this means that the studio sessions have been postponed again, so it is back to my cave for a lot of tea and rest.
On the plus side, now is the perfect opportunity to come up to me and say something very insulting. Say it in my left ear and I won’t hear you. In fact, say it with a smile and I’ll probably take it as a compliment.
Hope everyone’s 13th is going well.
Until next time.
