Beads 'n' Beads

Monday, December 19, 2011

Who doesn't love beads? Who doesn't love to put beads in their ears? Me, that's who.  One of my little turds Angels decided to put some beads into her ear.  I don't even know where she got them from.  After her bath last Wednesday when I went to clean her ears I noticed something shining in there.  This was at 4.30pm and after 2 different doctors and the hospital emergency department for a total of 6 hours the bead was still in her ear.

The bead culprit

"I didn't do it, I don't know how they got in there"

Apparently it was really deep and she had to be referred to an ENT specialist.  On Friday we had that appointment and they thankfully removed the bead, but only to find that there was a second bead sitting on her ear drum and there was no way that my little Miss was going to let the doctor near her again.  She is now booked into hospital again this Wednesday where they will remove the bead under anesthetic.

Going under anesthetic freaks me out, but when it's one of the kids, well that freaks me out a million times more.  So I've been a bit of a mess the last few days.  I know it's just a routine procedure and that it has been done before, but I just don't like the thought of her being put to sleep, I am feeling sick now just thinking about it. 

This mornings treadmill workout (#8) was a speed workout and was rather a wonky one.  The workout was going well and I was really enjoying myself up until the 19th minute.  I was running along quite nicely then all of a sudden I started to feel a little weird.  Luckily my HRM links to the treadmill so I can see my stats on the treadmill screen and my heart rate was at 219!

I slowed down straight away and just walked slowly until I got my heart rate back under 200.  Once it dropped down to the 140's I started to run again, but it shot straight up to the 200's again.  I ended up just walking the rest of the workout.  I had some chest pain before I started my workout so I didn't really want to push myself too much.  I had an ECG a month or so ago, but it was all clear so I think today was just a result of my worrying about Wednesday when my little Ava has to go to hospital.  Not looking forward to that at all :(

Good weigh in this week. I lost 1.7kg :)


  1. Oh no - how awful for you. I am sure that it will all be good on Wednesday but I know how worrying it is as well.

    Keep an eye on your heart rate and see a dr if it happens again - not good at all.

    Take care - love, hugs and positive energy !

  2. I Can't believe the bead went in that far!!! Good luck with the surgery - i will be sending positive thoughts. Watch yr heart rate that's really high xxx

  3. Oh, bless your heart. Goodness. I have a son who used to like putting things in the holes in his head - read: ears and nose. Once he put red fuzz from his pocket in his ear and freaked us out because we thought his ear was bleeding and we couldn't figure out what was wrong. oh my!

    Do you scrapbook?? You'll have to put that picture you posted with the comment you put under it and then write out the whole when her child does something like that someday you can remind her of what she put you through. :) *hugs to you*

    Congrats on the loss!!!

  4. Thank you so much ladies for your all your thoughts. They really did make me feel so much better and I appreciated them greatly on the day.

    All went well and Ava's ears are now bead free.
