Get Well Soon Graphic #69Hi Everybody! I wanted to fill you in with what has been going on with me. I haven't blogged or commented this week, because I've been very ill and subsequently came down with a horrible ear infection (I couldn't hear out of my left ear, which was scary. I had a high temperature. And not being able to hear throws your entire equilibrium off.). I've been back and forth to the hospital all week, seeing doctors and specialists. 
The ear specialist that treated me, Dr. Richard A. Spector, was THE BEST. I've never met a nicer doctor. He didn't rush in his evaluation. He truly cared and sympathized about my ordeal. He has the cutest pics in his examination room (cafe au lait and beignets etc.). He is so SMART (MD, Juris Doctor, Professor). He's amazing and I would highly recommend him to anyone. I can hear normally now, so that made me feel better. I'm still not 100%, but I'm getting there. I just wanted you guys to know. 
On a somber note, legendary American jazz pianist Dave Brubeck passed. I loved his rendition of the song "My Favorite Things". I really enjoy listening and playing it during the holidays. I've always been a big fan of instrumental renditions of songs.

An apple a day, keeps the doctor away!?! Hmmm, maybe I should've eaten more apples this year!!! Because I've definitely seen enough doctors. This blog post layout is definitely not me, but this is the best i can do right now. 

Have a great weekend everybody and I hope to be back to blogging Monday. Stay Healthy! xoxo Kim

Carole Poirot said...

So sorry to hear you've been sick. I really hope you'll recover quickly now that you've found what sounds like a fantastic doctor. I really wouldn't worry about the blogging bit - getting well is far more important and everybody understands that. Get well soon and have a lovely weekend. Hugs xo

Cee said...

Aw, so sorry to hear you're feeling under the weather, Kim! There's no worse way to start the holiday season than in doctors' offices, but it sounds at least like you got some great care from some real professionals - you're a lucky lady! Hope that you're over the worst of it now and are on the mend :)

Unknown said...

Sorry to hear you've been poorly - me to- but on the mend now, and hope you are too. My mum had an infection on the balance nerve in her ear once, it was awful, so I understand if you have been upside down literally.
Great to have you back sweets, happy weekend, and congrats to the winner, ;-)

I was sad about Dave Brubeck. He was old enough but still it was a total unexpected news.
I'm very happy you are feeling better! Good Doctors mean a ton! Get fully better soon!

Oh I hate ear infections. They are so painful. Hope you get better soon and come back to your normal self.

MaysaAndSunshine said...

Poor Kim, i am sorry to hear you had a terrible ear infection. I totally hate it when my little one had one. One time she had "double" ear infection which means both ears!!!! Cant imagibe how painful for a little body who couldn't really communicate yet. So glad to hear you are getting better abd have found a great doctor. Being sick really turns our world upside down. Thank you for the update too Kim, not seeing your post daily leave me with strange feeling.

Hi Kim, Sorry, I didn't realize it was this serious. How are you feeling now? It's nice to meet a good doctor. Could you imagine if you had a nasty one? Anyway, wishing you good health! Stay positive and I love listening to this video while I type this out.

Ear infections aren't fun - DH had one once the poor guy really suffered.

I'm very glad you got a nice doctor, hopefully he can speed up your recovery :)

Rest up!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Aww I'm sorry about your infection. I hope you're feeling much better now. That's awesome you found such a great doc. Those are VERY hard to come by.

I heard that this composer had passed, but I really did not know what he was famous for, so thank you for posting this song. Such a classic!

Kim, I am so sorry to hear(no pun intended) of this. I am glad that you can hear again. Listening to the vid. as I write this. It's one of my favorite songs. I love the sound of music version too. Hope this message finds you well, dear Kim. Dawn suitcase vignettes xo Forget the apples, eat cookies!! xoxo

littlemissandrea said...

Aww Kim! So sorry to hear you were so ill this week - but I'm glad you were in the hands of a great doctor! They're really hard to come by these days! Hope you're back to 100% ASAP :)

Aitana said...

So sorry, sweetie!!!^^


Diva In Me said...

Aww..I'm so sorry to hear that you've been ill. I hope you'll get well soon and days will be better for you. Definitely good to stick to an apple a day theory =)

MOSAMUSE said...

aaww... feel better!


Popcorn, Pugs & Peonies said...

Oh Kim, I hope you are feeling better now. That sounds so scary. I got a nasty cold over Thanksgiving, followed up by a stomach virus, and it was absolutely no fun.

On another note, I was sad to hear about Dave Brubeck too. He is from the area I live in, and even has a park dedicated to him. Plus, Take 5 is a classic.
