Here's an earful...

As I walked into the clinic today I was called into Michael's exam room for an interesting look at something...

When I entered, Michael was bent over a lady's ear, peering inside with his otoscope. I asked what the problem with her was and he motioned to some gauze sitting on his table. I shuddered as I looked at the objects scattered upon it- they were the body pieces of a good sized roach! 

The pieces of the insect...

He continued to dig around, cleaning out more and more antenna, legs and chunks of bug.
After a long time of cleaning, washing and more picking around it was all out!

The last thing to do was wash it out with peroxide; this cleaned off the residual remains of the lady's own home remedy she tried to use before coming to the clinic...
Urine.
