But he decided to shower first, and as we were in the car pulling out of the driveway, he said he thought he could wait until the medical clinic opened in the (later) morning. So now he is back in bed, considering whether or not to take a pain pill, and I am sitting at the computer. It is too late to go back to bed and too early to do anything else.

His problem was an excess of ear wax, apparently, that needed to be vacuumed out of both ears. Immediately he not only felt better, but he said he heard better than he had in years. He was almost giddy about it yesterday afternoon. I guess the build-up had happened so gradually he hadn't realized he was losing his hearing because of the obstruction. I have never had this problem, so I didn't even know it could happen.
