I got behind, and now I’m stuck. I have SO many blog posts stacked up in my brain waiting to get typed into the computer with all their corresponding photos that need to be cropped and resized and all… and then it seems like every day something new comes up that I’m so excited to share with you… but I can’t post that one until I’m done with the day before, which didn’t get done for various reasons.
On my list:
- A cookie party, and the ministry of the friend who brought it
- Christmas mass adventures and the nativity play
- Christmas itself (and how it worked out to have Dixon have to work the 24th, 25th and 26th)
- Our family vacation with Nana, Papa, Jane, AJ, David and Nicholas at the Great Wolf Lodge
- Sam’s return to NC
- Sam’s 14th birthday
- Jessica (violin teacher) is moving!
- Friends of ours who are stuck in Ecuador who need just the right person to help them.
See! And ALL those things have stories (some happy, some sad) and often funny things to share, and there are some wonderful photos.
But today, we’ll talk about today. Then maybe every other day I can do one from the list… like alternating… and we’ll get caght up.
Today George went for his surgery follow up for his ears. Because the surgeon was worried about his hearing on the right, just from playing with it in his office, rather than sending us over to schedule to come back for his audiology appointment in a few weeks like we usually do, he walked us right over and bumped us in front of all the waiting people.
His left ear is better than before surgery. He can hear low frequency noises at a normal volume, and higher frequency tones almost normally.
His right ear is not good. The hearing is actually much worse than the last time they tested… perhaps 7 months ago, not just before this last operation. He can only hear very loud low and midrange noises, and they couldn’t be certain he has any speech discrimination (that’s being able to tell between different words) even at the loudest levels.
So we’re going to recheck it in exactly two weeks.
Meanwhile, tomorrow I have my follow up chest CT. It’s possible that I’ll have some results Friday, but it will likely take a week or more for everybody concerned to come up with a plan about what to do unless it’s all perfectly normal. I guess during that week I can get caught up on the list from up top 🙂 But also tomorrow, the MEF is being offered for my intentions (Thanks, Lisa!!!) …. isn’t it amazing how her special timing always works out???
I’ll let you know about the CT as soon as I know anything. I promise.
