Dispatch From Oregon

Lisa called today. She hadn't called while I was at BayCon because she figured I was busy. I don't call her because she usually turns the telephone off when she goes to sleep, which, given her tinnitus, can be at any time of the day or night when she finally passes out.

The tinnitus isn't improving. None of the medications are making any difference. She's not happy. I don't blame her.

Her friend Scott came down from Portland and spent the night, she told me. She put him up in her father's RV, which serves as the family's spare bedroom. Besides, she said, she's too restive. She needs the whole trailer in which to stay up until (and if) she gets tired enough to sleep despite the wailing in her left ear.

Lisa thanks people for their various proposed cures or causes. Most of them, she says, are unlikely to be the case because if they were, they'd probably affect both ears equally, and her right ear is unaffected, while her left is nearly deaf and full of noise.
