Just wanted to pop in and say HAPPY JULY!!! I have returned from Texas, but I have been battling being sick since LAST Tuesday :( Not the ideal way to end my trip to Texas and DEFINITELY not smart to fly with my congested ears... I had somewhat of an emergency with the flight attendants on our way down because I literally thought my eardrums were going to either pop or start bleeding. I had to put cups filled with wet, hot, paper towels over my ears for the last 20 minutes of the flight. I was THAT girl, making a scene. I have never felt such pressure and pain. I do NOT recommend flying when congested. I will never do it again. All that to say, I have already been to the doctor and have to see an ENT specialist on Friday to figure out what is going on and how to drain all this fluid. Bah humbug, I know.... BUT in the meantime I am resting up so I can be ready for my sister to arrive in a week!
Will post more about our trip later this week, pending my ears and their cooperation.
