In case you haven’t been following along on Facebook and Twitter, I had a pretty rough October through Mid January. It all went something like this….

  • Get a cold
  • Cold turned into sinus infection, ear infection and bronchitis, heavy duty meds, lot of breathing treatments
  • Sinus infection doesn’t go away, more meds and more breathing treatments
  • Sinus infection still doesn’t go away, head to allergist, continue meds and breathing treatments
  • CT scan of head shows sinuses blocked and deviated septum, more meds and breathing treatments
  • Head to ENT because 6 weeks of antibiotics have done nothing
  • Schedule surgery to fix deviated septum, clear out sinuses on both sides and open up sinus passages so this won’t happen again
  • Recover from surgery
  • Recovery taking much longer than I hoped
  • Kidney stones? Still not sure what it was….

And I looked something like this most of the time:


and my nose looked like this….


That was my last 3 1/2 months. So needless to say, I’m sick of being sick!!!
