Something Strange

Since I woke up Saturday morning there has been something strange going on with my nose. Yes my nose. As most of you know I was diagnosed with T-Cell Lymphoma back in June of this year. What I have now is different but still in the nose, and I mean inside and/or behind the nose. All I know is it hurts like crazy. It feels like a zit or some type of growth behind my nose and the swelling derived from this problem has manifested itself on my face and is very painful. I called my dermatologist's office but cannot get into him until October 8th which does not help me now at all. I think I just might get to my regular MD's office the first thing in the morning and see what they can do.

The pain is almost unbearable. It is like I have been punched in the face 3-4 times, not that I know what that feels like. The closest I knew to that was punching another girl in the nose when she approached me in a fit of uncontrolled craziness. She was trying to pull me into her car to take me off into the country and do Lord knows what to me. Thankfully a neighbor intervened and all was well, but that is another story in itself.

Anyway, it hurts a lot. I will call the doctor in the morning or better yet just go by there and wait to be seen. It hurts that bad. I will let you know what is going on with it.

**Update--I woke up feeling much better this morning so I am going to see how it goes today before I call the doctor**

Hope it's just a hard, dried bugger. It is in a secsitive place that could cause the Pope to cuss. Good luck!

Good luck, girl. Definitely go to your family doctor today.

My daughter has lost 7#'s in the last couple weeks, and she cannot get into to the gastroenterologist
for several weeks. It really has me worried.

Oh, you poor thing! That does sound very, very painful. Let us know how it turns out.

Now, I need you to go to my blog and talk to me about which picture of mine you would like a print of. That is part of your award. So, preferable the Iowa pictures. Also, I am hoping to have some covered bridge pictures up today...

Oh no I hope your nose feels better!

Please do see the doctor, if only so you won't have to worry. I put this off when I had a simple toe blister and ended up losing my toe. I consider that my stupid tax. In the long run, a toe is nothing compared to a nose. I still have 9 other toes. It's probably something simple and you'll feel like a bother. That's OK, BE a bother. Meantime I'll keep you in my prayers.

Or a little dried noodle from slurping that chicken soup yesterday?

Excuse me, maybe I don't know you well enough to be unprofound...

Glad you are feeling better today. I hope it stays that way

I agree with Jan B. Go to the doctor.

It sounds like an impacted hair follicle or what I call an "under the skin" zit. I have had them in my nose before and they hurt like hell.

Nothing worse than pain in the facial area! Hope you get it checked and are feeling better. Stop over and read about my horse back riding adventure yesterday. also would appreciate any advice from you. a few people have told me to not be so nice to the horse. I have never worked with horses, but have enough dog training experience to know that you have to let them know who is in charge, and be confident, positive and consistent, but that does not mean I have to punch or hit him does it? (that is what I have been hearing) I do not believe in being cruel to animals for any reason.

OK LISA. Now listen to impacted booger or not - GO TO THE DOCTOR!
You do not fool around with this stuff with your recent ordeal. Go!
OK? I care.
