    After decades of misery and pain due to a childhood mastoidectomy, it is healing!

    My wife had to go into the otolaryngologist every three months for a very painful cleaning of an infected cavity, within her ear canal, that was caused by the removal of her infected mastoid cells when she was a young child. Her ear canal is very sensitive and the cleaning was extremely painful and lasted around 15 minutes. UGH! It must've seemed like an hour!

    But... each time she returned, after 3 months, the infection was still there, despite using antibiotic drops; and she had to endure another painful cleaning.

    Her appointment was today. She went in with her fingers, and my fingers crossed. We hoped for a little improvement, perhaps 10%? 25%? 50%? Any?

    Her infection is totally gone! The cleaning took only a few minutes and was not nearly as painful as before.

    What happened between her last visit and today? The otolaryngologist has suggested, as a last resort, the syringing out of her ear, twice a week, at home, with a mixture of white, distilled vinegar and 70% rubbing alcohol. She tried it. It made her very dizzy and, at first, very sick and nauseous. After a few weeks, the nausea was gone and the dizziness was less.

    Needless to say, after suffering for decades of pain and misery, we are both jumping for joy at the unexpectedly great results! Once in a long while, one can actually win one!
