Sorry (And a digression regarding my nose)
I have to apologize for the erratic nature of my postings lately. I have been in the grips of a summer cold for the past 10 days, and just haven't been feeling up to posting regularly. I think it is finally loosening up, and I hope I will be back to my old self soon. I have chronic sinus problems and a simple cold can make me absolutely miserable - I got a nasty little ear infection from this one. Fortunately, a few doses of antibiotics take quick care of my ear infections, so that has completely cleared up. I just wish the head and chest congestion were completely gone as well. Just a day or two more should do it.
When I was 13 or 14 I had nasal surgery to correct the sinus problem. I had been suffering from sinus infections, and sore throats and congestion and severe colds since I was a child, and I had high hopes for relief. The surgery and subsequent recovery was one of the most miserable experiences of my life, and what's more, it didn't work. In fact, I'm pretty sure it made my sinuses even more screwed up. But I'll live with it. There is no way I am going through surgery on my nose again!
Anyway....keep checking in. Things should be back to normal (yeah, right!) soon.
