The week where time stood still

This has been one long ass week. I'm still two hours away from the start of the weekend. It's funny how time at the office stands still. Yet, time at home ticks by in an instant. It's not fair, but that's life...

I had my follow up appointment today. Unfortunately, my CT Scan revealed abnormalties. The doctor rambled off the issues and they made no sense to me, so I asked what all of it meant. In short, my sinuses are diseased. Fortunately, it's not bad enough to require sinus surgery. It seems my condition has been caught early on before too much damage has been done. He said some people require the surgery before attempting any type of treatment. He performed another endoscope to confirm his assessment of my scans. He wants me to continue the allergy shots and see him again in three months. He'll have another look then, and we'll go from there.

My sore throats, ear discomfort, and other symptoms are all resulting from my allergies, just as I had suspected.

All I can say is these allergy shots better work! But only time will tell.

An hour forty-five to go... C'mon weekend. Shane is in town from Phoenix, he'll be staying with us through the weekend. It should be a good time. I'm sure we'll hit up Sahara for dollar blackjack, have some drinks and probably chow down on a few good eats.
