Fungus Girl Update and Golden Monuments

Now that I have wrapped up the Christmas photos, I will pause for an F.G. update before we move on.

I am so in love with our ENT that I think I will build a golden monument in his honor and place it right smack in the middle of downtown Homewood.

He is wonderful, his staff is wonderful and I couldn't ask for a better physician for Addie.

When I picked up the telephone and called them to let them know that Addie had taken a turn for the worse and we needed to see the doctor ASAP, I didn't expect for "ASAP" to be within the hour.

When he walked into the room and I told him that he had to "fix Addie", I knew that whatever he told me, I would have complete faith in.

When he told me that the only option was a trip to the O.R., I didn't hesitate to agree.

Addie has a pretty bad infection and when we heard the three possible outcomes of the surgery, I was left with a feeling of not really knowing which outcome we will have.

I'm not as optimistic as I probably should be, because nothing with Addie is ever typical or's always Wait and See.

All I know is that I trust our surgeon.

My love for our ENT and his staff grew even more when they readily set the surgery
- so that we wouldn't have to take anymore time off work.

The worst part is getting Addie through until Monday.
Along with Addie's ear issues, her sinuses have taken a turn for the worse, so she is on another antibiotic in an effort to give her some relief.

I don't even want to give details that may be for nothing.
A lot is fearful speculation.
For now I just have to keep her full of pain meds and comfortable and hope that Monday is full of good news!
