Brookside Gardens: Butterfly Heaven

It was a super-fun day yesterday with Anna out among the pretty flowers and butterflies. I hadn't anticipated that she and I would get a lot of time on our own so that was VERY nice. I enjoyed the other little kids, of course, but you could see how much Anna was enjoying her Mommy time.

Butterfly gardens have tons of gorgeous flowers; the names of which I have no recollection...whatever---they're just pretty. Look at my slide show:

I always pay for outings in the beautiful spring weather, though; this has been, without a doubt, the worst of years for my sinuses. In fact---I have a consult with an ENT next week; its looking surgical for me. Despite the wide variety of decongestants and antihistamines, I'm still about 75% congested and I now have an infection---ears, sinuses, you name it. Headaches, earaches...bleh. Wish me luck. I'm ready to be done with this.

Eeee! What kind of surgery would you have? Hope all works out for the best!

Some sinus sufferers have an issue with inadequate or obstructed drainage from the sinuses---if that is my case, and i do believe it is, and if the doctor believes its not going to improve with drug therapy, there's a kind "roto-rooter" procedure they do to remove obstructions or enlarge the drainage fossa. Its a yucky procedure BUT--I'd give just about anything for relief from this twice yearly horror and I suspect it would also help with my migraines...

So we'll see....
