My Thoughts for the Day…

Time for a Z-Pack…

006 copy “Dr. K called me tonight,” dad told me during our medication ritual yesterday.  “Your CAT brain scan results came back.  He was worried about brain tumors, but you have the worst sinus infection he has ever seen in the thirty years of his practice.  No wonder you’ve been miserable.  Apparently, you’ve had lots of pressure on your brain.”

I sighed with relief.  I was also worried about tumors.  I was exhibiting some of the classic signs.  They run in the family.  Dad and my doctor started me on a Z-pack of heavy duty antibiotics.  I already feel better this morning with lessened pain and pressure on the right side of my face.

Earlier in the week, mom and dad took turns with staying with me at night.  Mom called me after I had regained some of my sanity and said, “You would just start talking in your sleep like someone was there besides me.  It scared me.  You were really acting crazy!”

Helen Friday…

Dad is getting Helen to cook fried chicken livers today.  I used to love fried chicken livers dipped in ketchup.  Somehow, I have lost the taste for them over the years. 

“Get Helen to cook some fried chicken fingers as well,” I told dad last night.  “I don’t much care for livers anymore.”

“Be sure to put some chicken livers on my plate, though,” I then told dad. “Maggie loves them.”

Dad smiled and said he would.  I can’t wait until 3pm rolls around and I get to eat my chicken fingers and country vegetables.

Sinus infections are the pits. I hope you feel better and enjoy your meal this afternoon.

Glad to hear you're doing better. I took off a day last week myself due to a sinus infection. My doc several years ago told me to try taking Claritin or another antihistamine to stop the sinus infection before it starts since it's due to springtime allergies. However, with all the meds you take I don't know if it would cause any bad interactions.

Sinus infections really turn your brain into scrambled eggs too! So I can see why you weren't too rational and also why you tried some self-medication. I hope that this will bring you back.

Big hugs

Yow - sinus infections are really a pain! I'm so glad they went ahead and checked everything else while you were there! At least you don't have to worry too much about what it "might" be.

Get well soon - Maggie has miles of grass to sniff!

Love ya,
Grannie
