I hate headaches. I think they are the most annoying things to get. Sometimes you take medicine and they go away, and sometimes they linger on and on. I have debated on whether or not I should share somethings. I don't like to let others, well other than my family and really close friends, know when I am sick or if I have "things" to deal with. Well today I thought I would share, besides, no one really reads my blog!
Lately, I have had headaches, a lot of them. Today when I got up I had a headache, a bad one. I recently went to the doctor and he sent me to get a CT scan which showed that there is a bone missing in my sinus cavity, exposing my brain, and leaking small amounts of spinal fluid. I was sent to an ENT, who sent me to a otolargologist who specializes in these types of things. He probed up my nose, not a pleasant experience, and saw the exposed brain on a computer monitor. I was able to wear these special goggles and saw what he saw. Many years ago I had sinus surgery and the surgeon removed a piece of bone that should not have been removed. I will not pursue a law suit and am very grateful that I never had meningitis, as that could have been life threatening. I left the office feeling nervous, a little scared, but glad that I had an answer to the headache problem. My family wanted to go on a short vacation to Magic Mountain, which I doubt I will ride the roller coasters, but wanted to be with my family. The thought of twisting, upside down turning didn't sound pleasing to me, so I am going to go and read a book. My surgery is scheduled for the 25th. As the date gets closer, I am getting more and more nervous about it. I really worry about my church calling. I worry about visiting teaching and the new move in visits. I worry that I am putting added pressure on the women who serve with me to take up the slack. I know, I am a bit of a worry wart, but that's who I am.
Thanks for listening and hopefully my next blog will be pictures of my completed room!
