friday morning was spent in a hospital with lincoln.
this has become a way too familiar scene for us...
not to mention we've already met our out of pocket maximum for lincoln... in MARCH! lucky us.
in the past few months lincoln has been dealing with horrible allergies and a nose that will not let him breathe. the allergy doc decided that he would need to go in there and shave down his turbinates and clean out his sinuses.
lincoln did really well during the surgery.
when he was waking up from the anesthesia he said to me,
"i feel like i'm waking up from the dead,"
"am i in a coma?"
the nurse and i kept trying to wake him up so we could go home and so i said,
"lincoln, try and open your eyes, okay?"
he looked in my direction and with a sad voice said,
"i can't... will you help me?"
he said a bunch of other nonsense that i tried so hard not to laugh at.
i kept telling him he had a hand on his face. he was super confused. but i thought it was funny.
like i said... everything went really well.
we took him home to start the healing process and pretty soon he started to complain about his eyes.
he said they were burning and itchy.
we spent all day friday and saturday on the phone with the on-call doc trying to figure out what was up with his eyes.
he wasn't able to open his eyes at all friday. his left eye felt better saturday but his right eye is still giving him MAJOR grief.
and you can see why here:
he looks so sad.
we got an antibiotic for it, but we still don't know what in the heck is wrong with him.
his nose hasn't even bothered him... you would think, huh?
2011 has not been the year of good health for us.
so far we've had:
a kidney stone
2 sinus infections
2 cavities filled (lincoln, not me)
costochondritis flare up
last week alone:
i came down with strep
got a horrible kanker sore
lost 80% of my eyelashes
had a weird heart burn attack
lincoln had surgery and now has this horrible eye thing.
we are seriously having bad luck.
so... starting this week we are hoping for a much healthier happy year!!
