This appointment I had with Dr. McKenna was a follow-up appointment for my ongoing Sinus issues and chronic headaches. What was decided today was me to continue to use the Nose Spray. He has also ordered a Cat Scan of my sinuses to actually see what is going on in there. As far as surgery goes for my collapsed nasal tunnel, we have decided that Surgery was not the best option and we would stay clear of that. As far as the Chronic headaches go that have been ongoing from a teenager, he is referring me to a spanking brand new Headache Clinic in Toronto. I am to begin a diary from here on in, recording my daily headaches (something else I need to remember to do ! how will I ever manage ? )
Wowsers ! he is being very thorough. I liked Dr. McKenna when I had first been referred to him in 2009, and I really enjoyed going back to him, not to mention that he is not hard on the eyes either, if you know what I mean? *wink*wink*.
I am very excited about the prospect of going to a Headache Clinic as there is never a day that goes by wherein I do not suffer from some type of headache rather it is Sinus, Tension or Migraine. What would my life be without headaches? I truly do not know. The only thing worrying me about the Clinic is the drive into Toronto ... it has grown way too much since I lived there in the early 80's. Nevertheless I will go.
Once I had been done at the Doctor's appointment, Rob was kind enough to take us girls to Sears to check out their awesome sales they have going on right now. I managed to pickup a couple great Christmas gifts for next year.
Finally when we got back home where I thought I could get a couple things done before Dinner, I was soon to realize that was not going to happen since I had phone calls to return which kept me busy for almost 2 hours !!! I counted my blessing there were leftovers to heat up for our Dinner this night. Rob had chili and I had ....
Oh for those days long ago .....
... yes at times I long for those "carefree" days when a child, but then there are times I would never give up what I have found in Life for myself now, continuing to learn more each day on my stepping stones of Life through all its trials and tribulations.
I must be tired, as I am becoming melancholy. Is that a bad thing? I think it not to be, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
