Unusual Summer

This has not been one of my best summers. In May I started getting dizzy. Some days it was worse than others. It's a helpless feeling when you are dizzy. I could tell that the problem was in my ears and sinuses. I called the ear, nose, and throat specialist that I had seen in the past and got an appointment, but it was two months before I could get in.

I went to my general doctor and he ordered a CT scan of my sinuses so I would be prepared when I saw the ENT. I got a call from the ENT office. The doctor needed a longer appointment to discuss the CT scan with me. I knew that must mean trouble....

I finally was able to see the doctor on July 9. I did have multiple physiological problems that needed to be fixed....deviated septum, extra sinus, and extra air pocket. There were many areas of my head that were inflammed.

So last Friday, I had the surgery. It hasn't been that's not fun, but not horrible either. I am just so grateful for all the love, support, and help that has been given to me. I've had wonderful meals prepared, beautiful flowers and plants broght to me, many visits and phone calls, and the sacrament was brought to me at home yesterday. Greg and Melissa have been wonderful to make sure that everything is taken care of.

Now I am just waiting for things to heal. Thursday I see the doctor and hope to get the splints out of my nose. They've been the worst part. I wonder if I will be able to smell things once this heals..... After 30 years of not being able to smell anything, it would be crazy to have that sense back again. At least now I know why I haven't been able to smell. The doctor didn't want to do too much work around the area that controls smell because it is a more risky place to make changes. I'm glad he was conservative in his approach. So I'll just have to wait and see.

This isn't exactly how I planned to spend my summer, but hopefully fall will be great!!

I just want all of you to know how much I love you. I hope that this surgery does the trick and I have more energy and strength to serve each of you.
