So the good news with me being sick is that I already had an ENT appointment scheduled yesterday, because I've had four sinus infections in the past year. My GP has done nothing for me; every time I go in to see her, she just looks at me, asks me my symptoms, and says, "Yeah, you probably just have a cold." Then, the next morning I am coughing up unspeakable things and am incapacitated for two weeks. So when a friend told me her doctor actually does a *throat culture* when she goes in with a, you know, uses a scientific method to determine causality, I thought, REALLY??!? You mean there are doctors that DO that? That don't always treat you like a hypochondriac?

So after getting a referral, now I'm signed up for blood tests to see if I have an immune system problem, a sinus CAT scan (MRI? Something?), and a full-on allergy test. And now I feel a little like a hypochondriac.

But ANYWAY! You want to see eye candy. I did get a little bit done while I was away. I thought it'd be a great time to work on some of my over-one projects, since I'd have plenty of sunlight on the way down, but I didn't count on the bumpy roads. I ended up knitting on the Hemlock Ring Blanket. But I did get enough done on the squirrel that I am ready to start backstitching! Very exciting!

I've also been able to make progress on Random Thoughts since I got back, although it was a while before I felt like stitching at all.

Still sick, but now being cured with SCIENCE. Disney pictures coming!

You're WIPS look great! I hope you feel better soon and that they figure out why you're getting so many sinus infections. 4 in a year is a lot!

Very pretty Heather - I have that squirrel fob pattern somewhere, have always liked it. Good luck having the doctors find something to help your chronic issues.
