I Know , I Have Been MIA


I have been MIA  for a few days , feeling a bit under the weather with this infection . I had an ear infection at first  on the right side , I have  damage in my facial muscles and nerves on the entire right side from Bells palsy many years ago so I have to be careful with any infections on this side  , then I had pain in the teeth thinking it was a tooth but I went to the dentist  and he did a full scan of my face and teeth and found out it was  a sever case of Sinusitis all through my right side and it has been painful . I have been on antibiotics for some time to get rid of the infection first , he did say my teeth are in good condition  I do take care of them so that was a good thing to hear  but he did say however he would like to take a better  look later   because as I was already suffering in pain  he didn’t want to put me in any more by poking around . I have one wisdom tooth on the right side that he says looks iffy but it may just be the infection that is causing it to look like it does in the scan . So by next week I will  hopefully be all clear of the infection and I can get back to him and see what’s what ! I haven’t been able to chew on the right side so not eating very much either or sleeping much . So this is why I have been MIA !  I have been feeling better here and there and have been able to get out  and do some clearing up of the gardens and taking photos and enjoy these summer like temps and beautiful weather we have been having . I thought it was fall ,   could of fooled me lol !

                   Some of my flowers are still going strong and I haven’t had to bring in my Geraniums yet either !

SEPTEMBER 2014 (14 of 17)

I find that a lot of the Monarchs are fluttering though our yard on their long journey south as are the birdies, they seem to be making the odd pit stop for food and off they go . The Robins that have also been MIA for some time are back in droves as are the Starlings . The hummers and other summer birds are now gone  but  I have been hearing the Eastern Blue bird about the area so we still may have the odd summer  straggler lol . The Chipmunks have been busy stuffing their faces and storing food for the winter very busily dashing about ! Even the Cicada's are still around buzzing in the heat of the sun  and the crickets  have been chirping day and night  as have the grasshoppers in the day !

                                         Both Miggs and I have been enjoying this long extended summer weather !

SEPTEMBER 2014 (9 of 17) 

Regardless of the summer like weather the trees have been changing and leaves have been falling ! I cant believe it is the end of September already where does the time go?

Papa  and I had a good weekend . Yesterday  morning  we went to a wonderful scenic area down near the north shores of lake Erie near Port Bruce called Hawks cliff   and had a wonderful time there taking photos and enjoying the scenery and driving around  . I will post of this later . I  have lots of photos to go through lol !

                     So this in a nut shell  is what’s been going on in our neck of the woods , onwards and upwards I say lol !

                                                                           Until next time my friends !

Hope that the medication kicks in and does the job Elaine, it is awful being under the weather for more than a day or so. We are still enjoying this gorgeous weather, spending as much time outside as possible before it changes. I've been neglecting my site a bit too, but there will soon be lots of indoor time to work on it. I've been busy today putting away things from the garden workbench, it seems a bit harsh to do it while it is so nice, but I'd sooner do it now than later. Hubby has started raking the leaves in the backyard ... well he uses the garden tractor to pick them up but he tells me he does have to rake in a few areas of the garden :)

So sorry to hear about that infection bothering you for so long, and for so much. I ended up having a tooth pulled, which had also had connection to my sinus problems, and coughing...but that's how it worked out for me. Still coughing though. Will wait and hear how your situation comes together.

Crystal said...

Oh no! Hope the infection clears up that sounds awful. But your pics are pretty :)

Well I am very glad that it is not your tooth as that is horrible and would not be what you need on top of everything else! I really hope that you get better soon as I hate to think of you unwell. I am sending you hugs and good thoughts. Take care and get Miggs and Harvey to give you some hugs! xx

Hi Elaine...
I thought you would have been better by now :o(
Chin up....sonn you will be fit as a fiddle again!
We had an extra long weekend at the cottage...
Gorgeous weather!
Enjoy your week...and get better!
Linda :o)

I'm so sorry about your infections Elaine and glad you are on the mend now. I often have tooth pain when I have a sinus infection and it's usually what tips me off to the infection and I go to the doctor. Sometimes I have nerve pain in my neck as well that radiates to my jaws and teeth especially after shovelling snow or doing garden work. Crazy eh? It was a gorgeous weekend here but it was really chilly today. We may get some nice days again from Wednesday on. The fall colours are spectacular. Take care and get well. Hugs, Pam

Hope you will soon be feeling better, Elaine, and then have the prospect of a dentist visit, so not sure which will be worse. Lovely photos of the fall colors in your part of the world. We are still all green here.

Gail said...

So glad to hear you are on the mend.

Gorgeous shots, Elaine.

I have had sinus infection before. While waiting for the antibiotics to kick in, I would recommend two things to help: steaming your head over a hot bowl of water regularly, and sleep in an easy chair sitting upright for three or four nights. You won't get a lot of sleep, but it'll be a lot more restful than the pain that comes from lying down. Basically when you lie down, the pressure is at its worst on the sinuses.

Beautiful photos! I love the foggy picture! Praying and hoping you quickly recover from your infection...ear infections can be miserable to endure!

Margaret Adamson said...

HI Elaine Sorry to hear you have been under the weather but soon you wil be fighting fit again. Love Miggs.

DeniseinVA said...

More lovely photos but I am so sorry you have been feeling poorly Elaine. Hope those meds clear the infection up quickly. Feel better soon :)

Vee said...

Oh what you've been dealing with does not sound pleasant. May you feel better every day! It's beautiful in your world I see!

Glad you are feeling better Elaine, your touch of autumn is pretty and I love the seasonal header.

Surely this is a site well worth seeing.
