Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. During the past several weeks my presence on Second Chance to Live has been filled with my absence. You see I have been in the hospital. Over the years I have experienced reoccurring sinus infections. With the help of various prescription and non-prescription medications those sinus infections have cleared up and I have been able to get on with my life.
In the past week or so, my presence on Second Chance to Live has been filled with my absence. You see I have been in the hospital. Over the years I have experienced reoccurring sinus infections. With the help of various prescription and non-prescription medication several weeks ago I started to experience symptoms that appeared to be a sinus infection. As with times in the past, I began treating the symptoms with the hope that the medications would arrest the onset of the infection. My due diligence appeared to be working until I woke up August 17, 2008, with something definitely wrong with my left eye. I went to church for a time and felt that I needed to go back home. When I arrived home I decided to lay down to take a nap.
When I woke about an hour later and went into the bathroom and looked into the mirror my left eyelid had come down upon my left eye.
I was going to drive myself to the emergency room but then decided to go back to my apartment and call for an ambulance. The ambulance arrived and I was taken to the emergency room. After being triaged through the waiting room I was taken to be placed in a room to be seen by a Doctor. The Dr. examined me and decided to have a Ct scan be done on my sinus’s and eye orbits. Following the CT scan, I was taken back to the emergency room where I learned that I was going to be admitted to the hospital.
I spent the next 4 days receiving IV antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medications. Slowly my left eyelid came back over my left I appeared to be getting better so the medical team decided to discharge me from the hospital on the morning of August 21 at 10 am.
