We bought a new refrigerator about three weeks ago, I guess. Today it made a sound and I kind of freaked out for a second because I couldn’t understand the source. It’s the first time I’ve heard it make a noise and that’s because I had minor surgery this morning on both my ears. I was almost deaf, and my hearing had been going downhill since I got a bad cold around Christmas time. The last time I could hear even halfway decently was about mid-January, so I’ve been living in this little cocoon. It’s been horrible, and now I have some relief. I’ll go back in a couple of weeks for a follow-up because there’s some nerve damage that needs to be evaluated. My hearing is never going to be 100 percent again, and that’s probably from going to so many concerts in my youth. But the cause is something we’ll examine. In any case, I hope with my hearing mostly restored, my winning personality will come along with it. If I’ve been especially distant and grumpy, now you know why.
