One Day Surgery!

Hey Everyone!

Sorry for not posting yesterday. I came into work and realized that the sinus pressure building in my head was stopping me from doing anything at work. I left work at around 10am and took myself to the walk in clinic. They got me hooked up with an antibiotic and,Β  honestly I fee much better even after three doses.

Last night was a little tough, because we knew in the morning that Everett was getting tubes in his ears. If anyone doesn’t know what they are or what they do I’ll tell ya! They are literal tubes that are inserted in the ear drum to allow fluid to drain properly, and not build up and cause infections. For babies like Everett, must be put to sleep for a few minutes since they move a lot and don’t listen, so that is the freaky part. So my wife and I had a restless night thinking about things that could go wrong.

This morning we got up around 5:50am and had to get him there by 6:30am. So it was an early start. They checked him over and then had us get him ready in his little gown. He was tired and not sure what was going on.

After a little while they gave him the pre-op medicine that made him loopy, which was kind of funny after it kicked in. You can tell he was getting goofy.

His head was getting heavy and he was getting sleepy again. The doctors and anesthesiologist came out ad talked us through everything.

Here is a short video of Everett just feeling the loopy juice.

They took him back, which was hard for us, because we didn’t have control over what was going to happen for the next 10 minutes. We sat in the waiting room and tried to stay as calm as we could. When they were done we were called in to talk with the doctor and go over how everything went. He let us know everything went perfectly and that we could go see him in post-op. He was still coming out of the anesthesia, so he was floaty and not sure what to think. So he was crying and not happy. We were able to feed him before we left, since he hadn’t eaten in 12 hours.

By the time we got him in the car he was asleep. I hope when we comes out of his nap that he is feeling a ton better.

I am clearly back at work and trying to play catch up from the last two days.

That is it for me today! I hope you are having a great Wednesday, and I’ll see you all back tomorrow! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Welp, That Happened Again!

Hey Everyone,

I won’t make you guess, I got another sinus infection! I can’t believe it. I really think it is from taking our son to daycare, that is the only thing that has changed in our lives in the past few months. I get sick once or twice every five years, not twice in two months! What the hell? I’m hoping this doesn’t become a regular thing, not only do I have limited time off, it straight up sucks!

That all being said I missedΒ  Monday’s weekend round up , so I ‘ll muddle through it today. I am still feeling like crap and covering for a co-worker so its an early day for me today and tomorrow. Go figure I get sick when the most amount of responsibility is on my shoulders.Β  Well lets start on Friday night. We went to bed and that was the most exciting thing, until about 2 am Saturday morning, you know the day we are taking wedding pictures. I woke up not able to breathe through my nose and with a terrible sore throat, as well as a nice pounding headache. I made sure to try and finish getting some rest, but that didn’t go too well. We finally got the family up and had to get our son ready to go to his grandparents house all day and into the evening. We also had to finish pack up up our photography equipment and get our itineraries straight. To keep it short we were gone on assignment from 10 am until 7 pm. That is a nine hour work day, on a weekend, while sick, no thank you.

I traveled with the groom and his party, while they golfed, and got ready. While I had some time I took a few drone fly overs. I’ll like just this one, but the quality is crappy because it came off of my phone compressed. It will be in HD when we get it ready for them.

There will later be music added with a couple other videos and picture from the weeding added in a nice video/slide show for the bride and groom. I tried to make it all night, and I did succeed, but I felt like death and my whole body hurt.

I spent the whole day Sunday on the couch, being about good for nothing. My amazing wife did everything she could for all of us. I’m not a very easy person to be around when I feel like that. She deals with me pretty well. πŸ˜€ I must have done something right though because I started feeling a bit better late in the day, but still not well enough to do anything. I made the decision to not go into work, not knowing if I was contagious. I, instead went to the clinic Monday morning, and got on an antibiotic. I also had a meeting with the plumber to tell me that to fix our main water line that is broken, that it will cost about $2100 that I don’t have. So that is fun.

That brings me to today. I came in early to cover a co-worker. I made sure to go to bed early and get some sleep. everything has been going OK thus far, but I’m still achy and not in any mood for crap haha. I will get out about an hour before the others so that is nice. I have my antibiotic for ten days then I should be well in the clear. I really hope I don’t get this crap again. I hate being sick.

As for the plumbing, I think it is one of those things we just have to do, and we are going to have to bite the bullet and go for it. We should still have enough come tax season to waterproof the basement so that should still be a go.

That is all for me today, I may or may not be able to post tomorrow, we will see. I hope you had a much better weekend than I did. and I’ll see ya! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Where Have I Been! (For Shame)

Hey Everyone!

You may have thought that I fell off the flat parts of the Earth. Even though it seems that way it isn’t the case, I promise!I had every intention to post Thursday and Friday.

Let me explain. As you may know my baby had an ear infection, and my wife and I had head colds. He was already started on his antibiotic and starting to feel better. I was still feeling a bit under the weather. I woke up Thursday feeling worse. I came into work anyway because I didn’t want to take time off and not really have a medical reason. I quickly realized that I couldn’t think full thoughts and even walk in a straight line, without having a shooting pain in my head stopping me in my tracks. I spent the next hour trying to contact my family doctor only to have their line be busy over and over and over again…. Their phone system must have been messed up. I finally made the decision to leave and go to the walk in clinic at the hospital. Of course only to find out that they didn’t open for another hour…. I was clearly not in the right state of mind. When I arrived, at the correct time, I was seen and told that I had a bad sinus infection. At this point it was hurting in my ears and still shooting pains in my head. They sent me a script for some big horse pills. I took the next day, Friday, off as well because I was feeling worse than the day before. I really couldn’t even move the slightest bit without the worst pain I have felt in a long while. By the end of that day I did start feeling better, I wasn’t sure how much better, but it was significant.

I went to bed hoping that I would feel more ‘like normal’ in the morning. That was indeed the case. I woke up still congested but I was able to walk and bend down with out the pain. I was indeed clearing up. Just in time too! My dad and I were signed up for the company men’s outing that day. It started at 8am, but we didn’t go until noon. We were signed up for the horseshoe tourney and the cornhole tourney. I decided that this would be a good test of how I felt and maybe get some fresh air. We stayed and have lunch, dinner and some giveaways. The event was held at the local Amvets gun club. The weather was unbeatable, and the food and company was better. All around it was a great day. Here are just a couple pictures I grabbed.

Sunday, since I felt like a loser for not pulling my weight, we spent most of the day cleaning and tidying up. Early on we got groceries, which was nice because no one was there at 8:30 am lol.  We later went for a walk around the neighborhood. I tried watching the Dallas game, but they had a lightning delay in Denver and then proceeded to get their asses kicked 😦 It was rough.

Today I am BACK! Back at work, back at blogging, and back to normal.Β  I have some catching up to do here in the office, so my post will be early. Sorry for going dark, but I’m back at it now!

I’ll see you all tomorrow! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
