The leaves are slowly falling...

How is everyone today? I don't usually post on weekends but it's a little break after my lunch and before some cleaning and lots of assignments to finish and begin!

We've had some wonderfully warm days but today is a little windy and chilly--feels like November. I've had a pretty good week but still didn't manage to find time for a run or pilates. Between classes, meetings and volunteering at a school library I've only managed to find time for a few walks down by the river. I think that when I start my placement in 2 weeks I'll be able to find a little more time for those things.

Some of you may remember that in August I suffered from a nasty sinus infection that had me going to the ER after 3 days of nonstop pain. I went to see a specialist who then ordered a CT scan of the area. I got to see the results yesterday and it showed that my left sinuses are completely blocked which means that I'll be needing surgery. I hate going under but I hate the pain from my sinuses more (I had the same pain but not to so bad a degree this last Saturday). Fortunately for me, I can have it done during my spring break week and I should be better for my second placement which begins the following Monday.

From a summer of just kicking back and relaxing to being on the go almost all the time! WOW!

What a beautiful picture!

Surgery is never a fun thing - but hopefully the results will be long lasting and well worth it.

Good luck squeezing in some exercise this week.

Will you be seeing Dr. Tietze? She did my thyroidectomy & she also does sinuses. She's supposed to be really good.

Good luck with the surgery. I know it is scary to have any surgery but it will be worth the long-term pain relief.

All the leaves have fallen in our neck of the woods in VT. Just waiting for the snow to fall now. I hate the brown in-between seasons. ;)

I certainly hope the surgery brings the results you are needing! Sending good thoughts and puppy hugs your way!

Sorry to hear about the surgery but it's not that bad. My step father had it done years ago and he felt much better afterwards!

I love that picture you have on the blog. It's the one thing that I hate about Florida...no fall, no changing of the leaves. *sigh

Sorry to hear about the surgery but I hope that it will put and end to your pain!

Gees, hang in there. It sounds like you are one busy lady (I wanted to say it sounds like you have a lot on your plate, but I just can't use that in weight-loss bloggy land!). I am sorry to hear about the surgery.
