**Motorola ic902 - Probably the best of the (poor) choices with Nextel for a camera phone.
**Canon Powershot A430 - Oh, how I love thee, let me count the ways....Primary camera - if it a good photo, this took it.

First post-surgical - and flowers!

Had the first post-surgical debridement today, and it SUCKED like a
Hoover. My Goddess......I hope that was the worst one. However, once
all the bad stuff was done, I was given clearance to bend and stoop and
blow my nose, all of which is good. Naturally, the first thing I did
was go looking for flowers to take photos of :-).

The one bright spot...

...about this kind of weather is it's great soup weather, and this stuff
is really good soup, and vegetarian to boot.

Enough with the rain!

I have had about as much of this weather as I can take, and we are far
enough west in MA that the flooding here is relatively minor. Eastern
MA is well and truly screwed

Fashion statement..or not!

By request from Mandy, a shot of the infamous nose dressing, or as we
had taken to calling it, the nose sling. It's an eye pad, folded in
half, taped around and up between the eyes with 1/2" (1.25cm) bandage
tape. This was #3 actually, and I have concluded that DH would make a
very good dressing nurse - the ones he did were both more effective and
more comfortable than the ones the nurses at the hospital did, I think
because he wears glasses so he was conscious of how the tape needed to
go to not interfere too much. Had to wear it for two days and then I
stopped leaking, but I might have to get it back for a few hours after
each weekly visit to the sinus doc - the doc will once a week be going
in with a scope and getting out old dead tissues and compacted
infectious material out. I've been given to understand that the first
one or two is going to be rough so I expect it. They do spray everything
down first with a local but it's still not a picnic. Still, doing it
greatly increases the chances that things will heal correctly and I will
not have problems in the future, so it'll be worth it in the long term.I did experience something new last night - when I got horizontal to
sleep, the frontal and maxillary sinuses on the left both opened up and
were actually echoing a bit when I breathed and talked. DH said that
happens to normal people all through life and you learn to tune it out
when you are young. The fact that this was a new thing for me tells you
how young I was when the sinuses started to go wrong. I think I was
maybe 8 or 9 the first time I had the term "nasal polyposis" applied to me.
