Tomorrow is the big day...

After a rip roaring time of doing my continuing education work to keep my teaching certificate this week, I am ready for a nice, long sleep. What a way to spend my spring break!

Tomorrow, we will go to the ENT for DS11. We will get the final say on whether the sinus infection is truly gone. Otherwise, we will schedule surgery. Unfortunately, he still sounds congested and is now coughing again. Seems like he makes major improvements as long as he is on the antibiotics and then relapses the minute that we are finished with them.

DS9 and I have been using a nasal irrigation system (sounds disgusting, doesn't it) and it has taken a lot of the allergy symptoms that we have and gotten rid of them. And when you think that everything outside is bright yellow, just being able to rid ourselves of part of the massive amount of particulates that we are breathing in is a truly beautiful thing! On a personal note, my nose no longer bleeds when I blow it. DS9 thinks that it is the truly coolest thing to see water running out of his nostril into the sink. He even gave his Granny a live demonstration (much to her chagrin)!

I haven't been able to try it with DS11 because the information that came with it says that it's not recommended with an active infection. I plan on asking the doctor if it would be okay to do that when we see him tomorrow. I don't actually think that he will let me get anywhere near him with it, but we'll see how it goes. Aspie's get a little overloaded with crazy ideas (like pouring water up their noses--go figure).
