Sinus Surgery #2

E had her second endoscopic sinus surgery on Tuesday.  We got to the hospital at 8:45 am and the procedure was scheduled to start at 10:55, but it ended up being pushed back to 1:15.  So for 4 1/2 hours we tried to keep her entertained and keep her mind off the fact that she hadn't eaten anything all day long!

The procedure went well. It turns out that the maxillary sinus on her right side was completely blocked and unable to drain which was probably causing a lot of pressure and pain.  He said that in a lot of cases with kids who have cystic fibrosis, they don't complain about this kind of thing because they are so used to it and they also have other problems going on at the same time.  But if it was you or me, we would be complaining about it!  So I'm really glad we got her in when we did.

We'll go back for a follow up in a month and I'm hoping we don't see new polyps developing already by then, but more than likely they will be.  They sent some samples off to get cultures done and we will find out in a few days if there was an infection in her sinuses that needs to be treated.

Thanks again to everyone for your prayers and support through all of this!  It means so much to us!
