Surgery scheduled

IMG_3802eEammon has been away on a business trip all week so Maisie and I went real gourmet with our meals.  Honestly she just hasn’t been feeling great and has mostly wanted Cheaters Chicken Soup with rice noodles but I wanted her to have something more substantial so she put in a request for hotdogs and beans.  So some Maisie “safe” all-beef hotdogs and beans it was and she was a happy little girl.

IMG_3807eFirst I want to say thank you to everyone for your comments here on the blog, on FB and in emails regarding the problems with Maisie’s congestion and sinuses.  This afternoon we met with the ENT surgeon and she feels that our first course of action is to remove Maisie’s adenoids, get a culture of the infection in her sinuses and flush her sinuses.  She explained that even though Maisie’s adenoids look okay, they can harbor a lot of bacteria which could be contributing to her ongoing sinus infections.  She also wants to get a culture of the infection so that the correct antibiotic can be determined and maybe the flush of her sinuses will allow them a clean start.  She’s not ruling out sinus surgery but she feels that this “easier” surgery followed by the hopefully correct antibiotic may clear Maisie’s problem.  Because this coming week is spring break, surgeries have long been scheduled for this week and as it’s not an emergency, Maisie will have her procedure the following week so please send lots of good thoughts and wishes her way, they’re much appreciated.

As I mentioned above, Maisie hasn’t felt like eating much lately but she’s been loving my Cheaters Chicken Soup so if you’re not feeling well and need a fast, easy and delicious soup, click on the picture to be taken to the recipe.

  1. Sending lots of love and hugs for Miss Maisie. I hope this surgery will give her much needed relief. I know she will be so happy to be able to breathe again!

  2. Sending our best wishes for the surgery and for mama. Sweet Maisie.

  3. I really hope this "easier" surgery helps Maisie. Not that it sounds at all easy to me! I'll keep her in my thoughts - and you, too. Be brave mom!

  4. Praying this works really well and that they find the right antibiotics to give Maisie and that the flush flushes all the nastiness away.

    Praying for all of you.

  5. What torture to have to endure this congestion for so long! I'm glad that a surgeon will finally be able to take a real look and see what's really going on and I hope that Maisie gets some relief.

  6. I hope the surgery goes well. Poor thing, but hopefully this is an end to it all and she will be feeling terrific soon!
