I asked my ENT this morning if my low immunity has any bearing with what I am undergoing with my health now. I told her I am a cancer survivor and she nodded. I told her further that common colds usually take a month to heal since I got sick. When you have low immunity, it is easier for you to catch those unwanted bacteria/viruses in your body. Maybe that is also the reason that when I had Covid more than a year ago, my sense of hearing was affected. Among the four of us at home, I was the only one who heard those so noisy rolling drums for days that I had Covid. When I got well, my sense of hearing was affected. I could not hear even the daily masses online quite well until gradually one on one conversation was okay although I still don ‘t understand those songs on YouTube and those group discussion that I wanted to listen to until now.

My ENT told me that it would be hard to use a hearing aid if it is not molded to my ears. I quit practicing on the hearing aid that my youngest brother left for me but I could hear while wearing it. It may take sometime before I could wear hearing aids fit for my ears. Maybe my low immunity contributed to the other ailments I have at the moment.

Congratulations are in order. My daughter has just been promoted to Senior Manager at Bank of the Philippine Islands effective January 1, 2023. What a way to start the new year. They are both senior managers now. I am so happy for her. As they say in Tagalog, dadaan ka sa butas ng karayom before you are promoted. That’s how strick BPI is when it comes to promotion. I know she deserves it🥰❤👏

So really, really proud of you anak. Manang mana si Nate sa iyo. You could aim for the AVP next, why not?

Despite the setback, I am happy. It took me a long time to be examined by the ENT. She said the antibiotics might not be working so she took a specimen of the infection for their lab to know whether it is bacterial or viral. I have a brief few days to rest from doctor visits. The next one would be Thursday, December 22. I hope by then, the result of the lab is ready.
