    Well family, I'm going under the knife this morning. I'll be leaving for the surgery center in about 10 minutes. I haven't been able to breathe well out of my nose since highschool, and now it's caused a severe problem with sleep apnea. My ENT doctor is going to straighten out my septum, reduce my turbinates(dangly things in your nose) and root out my sinuses so that I will have some use of them. I won't go into details, but I think I"m gonna lose some flesh & bone in the deal. Gonna be sore for a while.

    Please pray for a quick recovery for me. Sitting in the house and not going fishing will be a bad deal. There are some small risks involved in the surgery as well. Just pray that God's hand will guide the surgeon's hand and watch over me.

    Jerrod

    Well, I'm hurtin' pretty good. The doctor said the surgery went extremely well and he seemed very pleased with the results. He's got me blowing some stuff up my nose, and for the first time since I don't know when, it actually hits my throat. It's weird. He had me on an enmormous dose of steroids and antibiotics before the surgery, so I'm hoping that swelling and such will be minimal.

    Thanks so much for all the prayers and well wishes. I've gotta get back to bed before Mt. St. Nostril erupts again.:cool2:
