A few were asking how the Bedroom after the flood AND how the bathroom renovation were going…some of you are really nice and really do care. awww…
Well, **fingers crossed** it seems our bedroom floor will survive. YEAH!! We dried it out all weekend with a DE-humidifier and had the fans going too…it was so loud that I slept in the guest room all weekend.
The bathroom is just mah–va–lous!!!
Marvelous is not saying enough. It is better than I had imagined it would be.
I think it is the nicest room in our house now. really.
Ok, maybe I will put in a teaser picture. 🙂
I know….pretty darn fab.
I have been cleaning for days it seems….the bathroom itself is sparkling…but our closet was trashed and our bedroom too…so getting all the dust and debris out makes me feel SOOOO much better…have I mentioned my NEED for clean and tidy??? hmm??? OCD????
really, I was washing all the sheets, towels, throw rugs, clean up towels (from the flood) and in doing all this, Coach went to get dressed for work on Tuesday morning and he had NO clean slacks. For me, that is quite HORRID. I usually make sure he has at least 4 days worth cleaned and ironed. I felt so bad, he had to go to work in jeans….
Oh, what the employees must be saying about me…..
ha ha 🙂
Yeah, I suppose if that is the worst thing that happens this week, we are pretty lucky.
Now on to my Lo. My lovely, lovely 15 year old angel.
I think I mentioned a few months ago that she has been having horrid headaches…since the spring.
She had a cat scan of her sinuses in December. They concluded that she has a deviated septum which causes sinusitis. Which in turn, keeps the head-achy feeling she is living with.
She also has terrible allergies. Poor thing…..
Her regular Dr. said we needed to see an ENT.
We did last week. And I wanted to run out of the office screaming “this man is a bit crazy”…cause he was….he was all over the place with his diagnosis, his plans for her, possibly surgery, new allergy “drops”…all sorts of crazy stuff.
So, we paid our co-pay and swiftly Lo had to call 911 when I fell to the floor after seeing the bill the Dr. was going to send to my insurance company for our 20 minute appointment ($800.00) Paleeeezzzze.
We saw another Dr. on Monday and I liked him instantly….I should have gone to him first, we saw him years ago when Lo had a piece of pencil lead stuck in her ear. (another blog post)
Well, long story short(er) he prescribed steroids for her. He said he was being aggressive in treatment, and it would be a hellish week for her, but hopefully she will be as good as new next week.
Well, hell it was. The child was miserable all day….crying, headache, body aches….just a mess.
I went to check on her this morning and she could hardly get out of bed….I kept her home and I have put in 2 calls to the Dr’s office as to whether we should continue, try a different dosage or what??….have not heard back yet.
If I have to drive down there…so help me……
She is feeling better, but I need to know what to do next….
In my haste to shorten the short story, I forgot to mention that Dr. number #2 looked a the Cat scans and said she CLEARLY does not have a deviated septum, but her sinus cavity is FULL of stuff. The 1st Dr. did not see her Cat scan, but looked through a borescope Dr. #2 also looked through a borescope and said the septum was fine. ?????
That is what the steroids are supposed to do…clean that out her sinus cavity and she can start fresh. He added Singulair to her morning routine and she will continue with zyrtec in the evenings.
Gosh, I hope it works.
