Week 42, Day 294-295, February 15-16, 2010 Calling in Sick

After a trip to the Emergency Room, and a trip to a specialist I think I'm finally on the mend.  My bloody nose has finally stopped.  In the winter using wood heat, our houses become very dry, and the sinuses also dry out.  That combined with a bad cold I ended up having several bloody noses over about a one week period.  I'm in my second day without a bloody nose.  I'm calling in sick on my photography for these two days.  (I didn't think a photo of a bloody nose, or bloody tissues would be very appealing.)

So glad you're doing better, Steve! Was worried :( Would a humidifier be a good idea? We bought one after we both came down with sinusitus in December. Sometimes our humidity gets as low as 10%. We run it in our bedroom at night and it has really helped with respiratory issues and dry/bloody noses. Just a thought.

Jen, Yes I think it will help. I purchased a humidifier last Thursday. Hopefully that will help prevent further problems.
