Cholesteatoma

Originally posted 2020-04-27 09:03:16. Cholesteatoma is a serious but treatable ear condition that can only be diagnosed by medical examination. Persisting earache, ear drainage, ear pressure, hearing loss, dizziness, or facial muscle weakness signals the need for evaluation by an otolaryngologist. My son, Dusty, had this years ago. I admit hearing he had a tumor in between his brain and his ear was a bit jarring. I mean who wouldn’t react that way to hearing the word, tumor?…

Telemed Appointments

Originally posted 2020-04-21 10:50:42. You know this coronavirus quarantine stuff has its ups and downs. One plus for me is not having to go into a crowded office and having to sit in a overpopulated waiting room. Since Dusty’s immune system is already compromised this is a huge weight off my shoulders! Alot of the patients that are in one of the doctor’s offices are children. As we know as children we didn’t think about…

So fingers crossed this is just allergies or a cold or something minimal. I do not meet criteria…

The last 24 hours

Originally posted 2021-01-13 09:28:48. The day started like any other. I try not to let Dusty know he has an appointment because he will not sleep and get up at the butt crack of dawn. He had an appointment at his neurologist’s office but not with the neurologist. He was seeing the doctor who handles his VNS (vagal nerve stimulator). They were checking the battery and other information that it holds. He had it surgically…

Prayers Please

Originally posted 2020-12-07 15:20:11. Please keep us in your prayers. This morning we found out that we may have been exposed to someone who was COVID19 positive. We weren’t around this person but my niece and nephew were and they came to our home several times, like they always do. They came over on Saturday, back and forth like normal. They just didn’t know they were around someone who was positive just I guess not…

Hanging in there, how about you?

Originally posted 2020-07-15 09:00:00. We are hanging in there during this COVID 19, coronavirus, social distancing, start of summer 2020. How about you? I have been trying to social distance from social media in some ways just because there is so much drama that I literally end up with a headache, daily. So I had to back away…slowly. I have been glad to be able to spend time with my bff and family since they…
