    Never had anything like that happen to me and I hope I never do. Good to hear you are healing nicely Larkin.
    addy I sometimes watch that show on t.v about real E.R patients and that cellulitis stuff is nothing to mess with. I have to cover my eyes and peek between my fingers sometimes while watching that show!

    Larkin, Wow that sounds rough, Glad you are feeling better. A couple years ago a moth flew in my ear and decided to stay there. Had to go to the emergency room and the receptionists were all smirking because they thought it was so funny. The doctor offered to give it to me as a souvenir after she extracted it, but I turned it down.

    Man Kieth did it do any damage or if it didn't could it have? Never heard of that happening. I suppose it could have laid eggs or something. And if they would have hatched in there............oh I don't want to think about that one. Just got a shiver up and down my spine!

    They poured something down my ear that killed it and removed the whole thing intact with a tweezer. The funny thing is we were visiting someone and just as we got to their door the moth decided it liked my ear. They had another guest that was very religious and as I was in the bathroom going crazy he was yelling through the door that I should pray. It was quite bizarre. My wife and daughter thought it was quite funny. A moth flew in my wife's ear less than a year later at Nordstroms one day when she was shopping and she had to go to the doctor also. Yes I was very happy to get it out. It felt funny and you could feel it moving. Egg laying would have made it much worse. That thought crossed my mind too!

    Oh my did your wife think it was funny when it was in her ear? What's w/ these moth's wanting in our ears. Is this a common thing or do they pick out certain ear types? Guess we need little ear screens for our ears. Bet peeps w/ hairy ears don't have the problem, lol.
