Mary's Update - Sinus Surgery
Update from the last few weeks...
I was in the hospital for a week at the beginning of January. I have been on IV antibiotics 24/7 since I left the hospital. My lung function has improved slightly, but I am not back to my baseline. The cat scan of my head that was done while I was in the hospital showed that my sinuses are blocked (due to CF) so I saw an otolaryngologist on Wednesday and she is going to do surgery on Tuesday (February 4th). I met with pre-op on Friday and everything is set to go. I will be admitted to the hospital after surgery to be followed by my CF doctors while I recover.
This week was busy....
Monday- blood work
Wednesday- cf doctor and otolaryngologist
Friday- 2 1/2 hour pre-op appointment
Exhausting? Yes. But I am so thankful they have found something that might help my body get better. By cleaning out my sinuses (and drilling holes bigger -in between my sinuses) I won't have as much dripping into my lungs all the time. Boy this is glorious, mucus dripping, drilling in my head, etc... haha.
Through it all, we are so thankful for the love and support of so many of you. We take life one day at a time, and it's amazing how the Lord provides the strength and encouragement we need for each day.
To God be the glory, Great things He has done. We are praying that at the end of all of the IVs and surgery I can gain some lung function back. Even if I don't we can rest in His Almighty arms. He is a gracious God.
He gives and takes away, blessed be the name of The Lord.
