Life's Irritations

If you have been wondering why I haven't been posting to the blog the last few weeks it's because I haven't been in the studio working but instead fighting a very resistant sinus infection. After three or four lots of antibiotics I finally got to an ENT person this week, had a CT scan, and found out I have to have surgery. Right on Christmas too! I had a tooth out back in April/May and since then have had pain in the same area followed by a very nasty ongoing sinus infection. Dental x-rays showed nothing but the CT scan showed what looks like a little piece of bone or tooth lodged up in the sinuses. They are going to try and hunt it down and remove it. Once that goes I should get rid of the infection and feel normal again. It's very hard to feel creative when all your teeth and face aches. The one good thing is that in another day and age, or even a country without dental or medical care, I would probably die from the infection going into my brain. I think I should count my blessings and not complain.

Hi Susanne,

Best wishes for a speedy recovery after your surgery. Doesn't sound like any fun, course, what surgery does? At least you will feel like your creative self once this is over.

Hope you can have a wonderful holiday season in spite of all the medical stuff.

Hi Susanne,

I called you today and got no answer so I went to your blog and was I ever surprised about your surgery. Tomorrow I am going in for a CatScan myself - small world. I hope to reach you some time in the next 2 weeks. I hope all went well with your surgery and you are going to have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
