Leigh's first patient

Another non-choir post.

Leigh told me tonight that her first patient of the morning came in for an ear ache. Nothing uncommon about that, right?

Well, Leigh looked in the ear of the child and saw what was causing the ear to ache.

A roach.

Not an EwaRoche, but a real roach.

And, it wasn't dead but alive.

A few moments later, of course, that roach was dead . . . drowned in hydrogen peroxide.

And then the roach was removed. It's not that uncommon, either.

I'm glad I'm a choir director.

Sleep well tonight!

Checking out Phil's blog from South Dakota where there are no roaches. Brings back not-so-fond memories of two years in Phoenix and visits to relatives to Florida. I'll take the occasional blizzard, thanks.

I got an ant in my ear when I was little too. It didn't hurt but it sounded funny to have something crawling on my eardrum. Chris' mom got something lizard-like stuck in her ear in Florida.
