I intended to write this post last night, in the heat of the moment, but I wound up crashing pretty hard.
Due to my fighting hobby, my ear started to cauliflower. This past week I have been sparring with the best guys at the gym. And in doing so, I was getting my butt kicked and it was great – but I was also taking some punishment on that ear. It wound up blowing up and yesterday I had to go get it drained. I made the mistake of thinking it was a simple procedure. I went to my general doctor, who immediately looked at it and said – ‘Oh, I wish I knew that’s what you were coming in for. I can’t do this.’ Well, doc, I let the receptionist know. Maybe you should actually talk to your employees.
So he sends me to a plastic surgeon. But before I go I have to hit the lab and get bloodwork done. The guy taking blood made me wait 30 minutes, and in doing so I was late to the surgeon. He had to go into surgery. So another doctor agreed to do it, but I had to drive to a different hospital’s ER. An hour later I was getting my ear drained. If my insurance doesn’t cover all of it I am f*$ked. We’ll see in the next week or two…
Either way, about six hours for a 20 minute procedure was awesome. And now I’m out for at least a week. Just as I was starting to train hard again.
