Update

So the surgery did not go as expected. According to the doc I was so congested it was not safe for him do the procedure for the sinuses. So I am now, once again, on predniSone and will go see him in two weeks to determine the next step. For now I am still having issues breathing and Kleenex and I are besties.

The good news is he did get to work on my ear. He went in and debreaded my ear, in normal terms it means he went in a cleaned it out really really good. Apparently I had a stubborn infection that was just not going away and was in a difficult spot. Now that it is all cleaned out I am on antibiotic drops to help prevent new infection. After this I should not have anymore problems (should being the key word). If this works going under will have been worth it.

In Other news:

Expect a very exciting and interesting blog post from Girl Scout camping weekend. The leaders of Brownie Troop 628 are braving the out of doors this weekend with 17 2nd graders (and a few of their parents) for a fun-filled overnight camping trip. We did this last year with 12 of them and they loved it so much they wanted to do it again. We will be fire building, cooking, crafting hiking and much more. Pictures and stories to be posted. SO EXCITED!

A fix…maybe

Tomorrow I will having a surgical procedure call a Balloon Sinuplasty. Apparently my Sphenoid sinuses are almost completely blocked on my left side and need to be cleared. This could be why I have been having more breathing trouble than normal. It IS the reason for constant headaches. The doc says it will only take about 20 minutes and I should be able to work the next day. We will see about that one. The doc also is adding in a little bonus while I am under, he is going to try and fix my ear. For about 5 years I have had a chronic ear infection and tried several things to fix at and nothing has worked. He thinks he knows what it is and is gonna try. I really hope this works. I will update you all on how everything goes.

Let’s all hope this works and I can start to breath better and get back on my bike. I miss it. I also miss walking up a flight of stairs without being winded.
