This time it's for a polyp in my sinus canal. The CT scan also showed I have had such long term sinusitis my tissues has calcified in an inflamed state and I am only getting 5% air through my nose. Could be a HUGE reason why I am so tired and can't sleep at all. Surgery is June 13th. Dr. said I will out for at least a week because they have to chip away at all the calcification and it's not a "normal" sinus surgery. Nothing for me is normal so that's ok. lol I can't really report on the food thing. I have been so sick with two back to back sinus infections so I am eating a ton of soup. Eewww... Soup makes me bloat up like a whale due to all the salt. As fat as I am I am not one of those fat people who likes salt. I NEVER add salt to anything. Even when I used to eat fries I would scrape off the salt before I took a bite. lol I swear to you I have seen someone put salt on a salad! Anyway, at least one thing I have always done is healthy... lol
Pic of the day... A new lake spot we found while on a drive near our house. I was able to get out and walk around to take pics. The little things...
