Actually, the waiting room was only 3 hours. It was the wait once inside that was killer.

And thank you all for the neti recommendation! Definitely going to buy one.

Here's to a healthy 2010 ;)

Hope you're feeling better by now, Michelle! Did you at least have a book for the wait? (Or were you feeling too bad to read?)

I did have the foresight to bring a book (and a lengthy one). It was The Help by Kathryn Stickett. Anyone else read it?

I've read The Help - I loved it! It's in my top 10 for 2009.

Sinusitis can be awful. I've had it. Ibuprofen and decongestant tablets can be effective. I remember a friend of mine having it once and she thought it was just very bad toothache. So she went to her dentist - he told her it wasn't a dentist she needed but a doctor! LOL.

My son is not well so having my first day off of work since starting my new job.

I am hoping that he is okay tomorrow, but at the moment he doesn't even like me being out of the room.

So sorry about your son, Diamondlil! My three year old is sick, too, though thankfully just a cold so nothing too bad. Hope your little guy is feeling better soon!

I feel for you Marg. During the worst of her latest cold Emmy wanted to be held all day long.

Argh! I had written three reviews that I was waiting to post in January, and yesterday through my own stupidity I accidentally erased them. Now I will have to reconstruct them. One was among the least well-written books I have read all year, and I'm not looking forward to writing the review a second time. I always feel unhappy for the authors when I write a bad review. I was holding this one so the author wouldn't have to read it during the Christmas season.
