A Surgery Update

Friday, February 26, 2016
Some of you may be wondering why I have been silent the past couple of weeks.  Well, I had surgery last week that was supposed to be one of those, no big deal types of things.  Of course with me, nothing is "no big deal."

I have been dealing for the past three years with a blocked nasal drain which normally would allow my tears in my eyes to drain into my sinus cavity.  It sounds worse than it is.  And honestly I thought of it more as a nuisance, rather than anything else with my right eye watering all the time.  Last month when I went to get my eyes checked, I realized that what I thought was just a nuisance, was starting to affect my vision.  I finally decided it was time to take the plunge and get the surgery that I needed.

Home after surgery, and that is a "yes" on my forhead.  There was no mistake on which eye it was!


The doctor said that the worst part about the surgery was the general anesthesia.  He also said I would be up and around the next day, that I could go back to work, and that I would have only a small incision on the side of my nose that would be hid by my glasses.  I would soon realize that none of these statements ended up being true.

The infection has started.  This actually isn't as big as the swelling got, but you get the picture. ;-)

Two days after the surgery, I started swelling.  When I called the doctor, I found out that I was getting an infection.  Antibiotics to the rescue!  But thanks to that, I started having headaches, really horrible sinus headaches.  So no work for me.  No posts as I couldn't really see to do anything.  No wearing glasses as they sat right on the overly large incision.  Nothing was as I thought it would be.

Still swollen, but doing much better after antibiotics.  And yes, that is the same shirt.  My fav...LuLaRoe Randy Tee!
 The silver lining in all of this?  My eye didn't water anymore.  Yay!  

Today, I feel like I am finally starting to mend.  The sun is shining, it is Friday, and my master closet will soon be finished (can't wait to share that post with you!)

So look for some new posts next week.  I hope to be back in the swing of things and I can't wait to start sharing with you some of the things that we will be doing on the farm this spring. 

Oh, and look for an announcement to be made in the next couple of weeks.  I'm so excited, and Steve is even more excited!  I don't want to tell you just yet, but we will be sharing it with you very soon! 

Thanks for checking in and catch you next week!
