Hello everyone. Here it is Monday. Sorry I've not blogged in days. I've had a lot going on. First, let me report that I went to my ENT and it's official that I once again need surgery. I'll need to have the blockage in my upper airway ballooned and lasered. Although he wants to wait another month or two. You see if we do it too early, then the procedure isn't as effective. So now I have to figure out when to do it. Likely end of August or so.
The other bad news is that he put me back on steroids to reduce the swelling and help my breathing. Boo. Hiss. I've been on them about a week and I'm up 5 pounds. I hate that crap. Some of that weight is from the drug, some from some bad choices. That medicine makes you INSANE and hungry. Absolutely nutso. I was in bed all day yesterday. NOW I think I'm getting a sinus infection. Yippee.
I had the scope last week, up the nose and down the back of my throat. Infections happen sometimes after. I hate that test. They spray this nasty numbing spray up your nose and down your throat. That crap burns and tastes disgusting. Then you feel like you can't swallow for like an hour afterward. And even with the spray the scope burns when they put it in. Yucky-poo. Well, all in all there are much worse things in life. I'll not complain TOO much. Maybe just a little.
I'm frustrated because I was really hoping he'd tell me it wasn't back. I'm also frustrated because I've gained weight. AND now I'm sick. Ugh. I was supposed to meet with my trainer today, but my Sleestak like breathing prohibits it.
Now I'm at work and counting down to when I can go home and lie down for a bit. I hate that. Hate it. And I haven't been tracking my food. But, I am going to do my best to get back on track, steroids or no. I ate a sensible breakfast and drank my water this morning. I'm back to tracking and forcing myself to avoid any more bad choices. It's hard with these meds because I am hungry all the time and crave carbs 10 times worse than usual. Stupid medicine.
So just a quick and grumpy and wheezy post today from me. I'll be catching up on everyone's blogs and trying to comment. Hope all's well with all of you. One day at a time, right? Oh, and check out my friend Kim's blog, she's new. Welcome her and lend her some support.
