Sinus surgery posts coming soon

I'm working on editing posts I made in the last few weeks about my sinus surgery. Some of them were a little too drug-addled for publication and some of them just too gross. But soon, my friends, soon there will be updates.

Sinus surgery – Day 18

I am thankful for smaller pains. You know how when you have a deep papercut on your finger and you realise that you use that finger for a LOT of things and every time you use it there's a stabbing little pain? Imagine that in your nose every time you breathe in and every time … Continue reading Sinus surgery – Day 18

Sinus surgery – Day 17

Longer than the facebook version.... 1. Had my surgery follow up doctor's appointment today. Only one small spot still looks infection-y. The rest is coming along nicely, whatever that means. I'm healing slower than he'd expected. I'm to be on the look-out for green snot & headaches, both of which I currently have. Yay? He … Continue reading Sinus surgery – Day 17

Sinus surgery – Day 16

Went out to lunch at Bruno's with my lovely BSF ladies today. First time out being social that was not funeral related. God was definitely holding me upright for the funeral. Now I know. Oh so tired. Lunch was interesting in that so many things that I was used to tasting seemed differently flavored. I … Continue reading Sinus surgery – Day 16

Sinus Surgery – Day 14

1. It's been two weeks.... out from surgery & I am on my second round of antibiotics because I can't shake this infection. Inside of my nose feels like fire because of an altercation with a toddler with a hat at a funeral. These things you just can't make up. I called the doctor about … Continue reading Sinus Surgery – Day 14

Sinus surgery – Day 11

I am not well. I just want to point that out in case later someone wonders. There's still icky stuff draining from my nose. Really icky stuff. It looks like Hershey's syrup, brown and goopy. I have talked to the doctor's office and they have prescribed yet stronger antibiotics because I am still all one … Continue reading Sinus surgery – Day 11

Sinus Surgery – Day 9

Things I'm thankful for: 1. Neosporin + Pain Reliever all in one tube. Because I needed to put that stuff on a q-tip and rub it around inside my nose anyway; I'm glad they've added pain reliever so it's bonus good. 2. Nick teaching the boys all the cooking things last week. So today the … Continue reading Sinus Surgery – Day 9

Sinus Surgery – Day 6

1. Have discovered that adding a second kind of pain reliever is key to my comfort. It is so much better. Not pain free by a long shot, but much less intense. More like sinus infection level pain. 2. I made my own lunch today. Well, I started making it yesterday, did bits & pieces … Continue reading Sinus Surgery – Day 6

Sinus surgery – Day 5

This morning, my husband packed himself off and left for The Hague. He'll be there a week and a half and I will be here, fending for myself and the kids. It will be fun! (said nobody ever). The kids are at Nick's parents house for the weekend so they can do their usual church … Continue reading Sinus surgery – Day 5

Sinus surgery – milestones

In the last 24 hours, I: 1. sat at table for dinner last night for first time since surgery. Ate most of my food. Did not collapse. 2. took a real shower. Washed my hair and everything. Did not collapse. 3. rinsed out my nose with irrigator. Marveled at the grossness that came out. Did … Continue reading Sinus surgery – milestones
