Irina's ENT Results

So, today I went to the ENT with Irina.  Get to the point.  Allergies are BAD.  Beyond bad.  They want to do under the tongue drops but those are expensive and not typically covered by insurance he said.  Then, he suggested shots.  The allergist he said would call us and discuss options.  Next, was the CT Scan.  Umm, yikes is all I can say.  3 out of 4 sinuses have infections he said.  The 2 channels you have in your head to drain them, are completely blocked in hers.  In addition, she has a cyst.  Also, has a hole in her passage.  He said though at this point the perforation is a good thing b/c it is helping her breath since she is completely blocked everywhere else.  Irina has major issues breathing.  Doctor wants to see if the allergy solution will help before he does surgery on her.  Not the best news but given all our other issues and such, not the worst news either.  So, waiting on allergist and course of action.  Her job right now of cleaning is not good for her at all.  Severely allergic to dust and all sorts of other things. 

We were there all morning long today.  After, we went to a local consignment shop and picked up a few things.  New  pool floats to prep for the season.  We also went to a pool shop inquiring about a liner.  We'll be getting a new liner this weekend hopefully and installing it ourselves.  Geez, new pool liner, river rocks around it, etc. Going to look sharp as is the yard w/ all this work. 

We had a very late lunch at home and then started getting things in order for our upcoming yardsale this weekend.  Ton going on.  We are also trying to make room for more beds.  We'll be having a few guests soon.  Two to be exact.  One temporary and one maybe a little longer.  So, making space to be sure.  Need to sell this house!  We have found a home that would work and not far from us.  We are torn between that and building one.  Time will tell.  So, expect a house post soon.  Making room here in the mean time until new place can be found.  Much more to come tomorrow and finish up those TN pics.  Just had to explain why I've been so busy.  And that isn't even the half of it!  Nik's all day eval at UNC post is soon too.  Again, lots to share.  Many upcoming events as well.  Keeps life interesting.

  1. My son is also allergic to everything. We took him to the allergist and his doctor said that the drops are not proven to work. That's why the insurance won't pay for it. He told us that even if the insurance paid for it, he wouldn't recommend them at this point. So, we go and get the shots at least once a week. My husband has also done them, and they really made a difference. I hope that you are able to get her allergies under control.
