Post-Op and Sickness

Yesterday was my post-op appointment. I always have mixed feelings about this because, while it is nice to be able to breathe and blow my nose again, it is a pretty painful procedure. I mean, having a metal instrument stuck up your nose to yank things out is just as much fun as it sounds.

I made it through, though. My eyes watered up, and I had to clench my fists, but I didn’t actually cry during it, which I was pretty proud of. My doctor and I joked around a good bit, which made it a bit easier. It’s always nice when you have a rockstar doctor.

Now, I still have some healing to do. The dissolveable packing is still in my head, so I’ll feel like I have a bit of a sinus infection until it’s completely gone. Then, I start medicine in my sinus wash (which also is about as much fun as it sounds) to hopefully make sure the sinus cavities stay open and we don’t have to go through this again. Because that would be awesome.

It’s a good thing  I was planning on today being a relaxing day because my munchkin woke up at 4 a.m. after throwing up all over herself. Thankfully, that’s been the only time so far, but she says her tummy still hurts and she doesn’t want to eat anything.

So, my sweet baby is spending the day on her comforter, which I fluffed up for her to lay on, watching Dora. Not a bad way to spend a sick day. (And, no, I don’t just put towels over my daughter. I tried a blanket but she INSISTED on a towel. Whatever floats her boat.)

I hope I can get some food into her at some point today, but for now, I’m glad that I at least got her to drink some watered-down Ginger Ale. I was hoping the bug that’s going around would skip our house, but I guess we’re just not that lucky. Hopefully, this is the worst of it, and we’ll all be on the mend soon. My plan is to write about Halloween later today. We had a blast (well, as much as I could two days post-surgery), and Lucy got quite a haul of candy, which she refuses to eat. That’s fine. It just means more for Mom and Dad!
