Long Overdue Update

Hello to anyone who is still around after my very long absence! My apologies for the long delay.

Not a great deal has happened. I flew up to Mum's for a lovely 2 week stay towards the end of June. My GP put me on strong antibiotics and prednisone to get me there.
Mum is doing quite well. Still having chemo, but had scans last week and sees the Oncologist for a progress report next week.

I have been quite sick with sinus infections since February. It has made me very tired most of the time, and as everything was draining backwards, I would get severe coughing attacks as soon as I exerted myself or got overheated. Antibiotics (all different kinds) have not had any real success, so I was sent off to the Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist the other week. Went into hospital on Wednesday for Endoscopic Sinus Surgery and came home yesterday. I'm not allowed to blow my nose or sneeze for the next 2 weeks. Much as I would love too! :)

I have to admit that I have also been spending quite a bit of time on Facebook conversing with Di, Lynda, Jo, Neroli, Pat, Deb and Kay (and a few others). I've been enjoying the lovely slow going Scrabble games we have been playing. Some of them have taken over a week to finish.

I will get back to blogging properly as soon as I have something worthwhile to blog about.
Hopefully the operation will be a complete success and I will be able to get back into life.

    Hope you are feeling much better. xxx

  7. I can relate to a lot of your problems with coughing sinus etc...I finally went to a chiroprator who does 'contact reflex analysis' and he has helped me tremendous....it is not a mind thing...he reads the body...and it works for me...I had coughed for months, sinus surgery, and on and on....so I feel for you...trust you find something that works for you...someone once told me to 'find my path to healing' ...and it is different for all of us...blessings...

  8. Love and hugs and prayers for a quick recovery. God bless.

  10. Lindi, I've been thinking about you and wondering how you are.
    I hope you're doing ok and I understand sinus infections as I too have had my share this winter. Nasty!
    Do take care and hopefully you can become completely well again.
    Hugs to you,
