Sarah's boyfriend Tommy was released from the hospital yesterday with a severe sinus blockage. They are going to try treating with meds first but may have to do a sinus cleanout if that doesnt work. I dont think I have ever heard of one that severe to cause such pain. I'm just glad it wasnt anything more serious.

Dandy and I will be staying in today as its much colder, windy and supposed to have some rain later. I sure dont need to be out in it.

I am going to start on my dreaded"List" I always make this time of year. Its kind of like Spring cleaning but more like getting the house ready for the holidays. Gonna catch all those little nooks and crannies that sometimes get overlooked in the day to day stuff. If I can get one or two done each day, I will be happy.

Hugs, Jackie

I had one of those infections years ago - it feels like little men running around with knives.

My DBIL years ago had to go to the hospital and have them get through his sinuses and he said it was the worst pain ever. He would never do it again.....I pray that the meds work for him..

Sinus pain can be so horrible...I'm sure it's the root of my migraines.
