Just some pictures (and some yammering about Mom)

Mom (finally) went to the doctor yesterday, and she has (say it with me) Yet. Another. Sinus. Infection. You would think she would know better. See, many years ago (7, I think) Mom broke her nose in a ski crash (and as an unrelated side-story, Dad was first on the scene, and got her to re-set her nose right away, which saved Mom having to go through painful surgery later, and now her nose is mostly straight, AND Mom decided that Dad was her knight in shining armor). Anyhoo, apparently there is some sort of connection between broken noses and increased sinus inflammation. And if Mom doesn't get on it right away (she has to take steroids) when her sinuses 'blow up', she gets a sinus infection, and then she has to take all sorts of drugs, and is generally useless when it comes to helping me visit bloggies and put up posts and stuff. So, bear with me; Mom says she is feeling better (although she also says the steroids turn her brain to mush for a few days... and they make her kinda cranky...), but she's not 100% yet. At least she knows in the future to get on the steroids right away and avoid the whole infection/antibiotic/out of commission for a week thing. And she is on the mend, so it's all good. Thanks for your kind wishes for her!

To add to it all, we have a storm on the way, and before the storm we've had warm weather, and today it has been Super Windy, so Mom dropped us off to daycare today. (Something about us barking at every single noise with the wind and her on steroids didn't seem to be a good fit.... I mentioned that she's a wee bit cranky, right? Heehee.)

So, I give you some pictures from yesterday....

I hope you [pomted out to her that snow zoomies and bitey face are good therapy for Sinus problems. If she would run in the snow like you do, she would not have any problems.

Oh dear! I'm so sorry to hear about your human's Sinus Sickie! That sounds awful! But I'm glad that she is feeling better - hope she is all back to normal soon!

I'm envious of you going to doggie daycare! Do you like it there? Do you take your beloved Frisbee too? My humans are trying to find a doggie daycare here for me in Newcastle coz they worry about me being an "only doggie" and so they think it would be good for me to have the chance of some canine company! :-)

We're sorry your mom has been ill, grateful it held off until after Mango Minster was over, and hope she's feeling better now. Enjoy your new snow! It's got to be close to the last one of the season. Spring is just around the corner!

ok, how exactly did he reset your mom's nose right away? did he punch her in the nose on the other side? And she thinks THAT is a knight in shining armour? man, your mom is delusional... prolly that explains the TWO YOUNG GIRL PUPS in such a short time. oh yah. crazy mo-fo she is.

tell her recipe post is coming. she won't like it, but it's coming. and i'll share the shrimp thing offline.


Mango said...

I hope mom's head doesn't explode. That would be very unfortunate.


Pepsi the Lazy Bum said...

Sinus infections are definitely no fun, my Mom already whines about her small sinus issues. Sure hope she recovers from the infection and the crankiness soon!

You sure know how to play! Hope your Mom feels more better soon. Mum knew someone at uni with really bad sinuses. He had an operation thingy in the end.

I find that mom's seem to LIKE to learn the HARD and Painful way.

mayziegal said...

OUCH! I'm Most Impressed that your mom was able to re-set her nosie. I'm pretty sure my mom woulda looked at my dad like he had three heads.

I sure hope her sinus infection goes away soon!

Our deepest sympathies. Living with a grumpy human on steroids is not fun, but you still look like you are having a ball, a snow ball.
