One-Liner Wednesday: Don’t Blow!




Warning: this could get messy.

I’m late for One-Liner Wednesday because I’ve been out of town for two days. We just got back this afternoon from Chapel Hill where my husband David had surgery on his sinuses. They cleaned him out good and kept him overnight. The doctor said in addition to the cysts they removed, there were signs of infection that have been there for a long time, so it’s going to be worth the mess and discomfort. The biggest post-op order is:

Don’t blow your nose!

David, had similar surgery way back in 1979. The good news is: this time it’s much less painful, the surgery went well, and there’s a 50% chance snoring will improve. 🙂

  1. HAH!
    I’m so glad a surgery can make him more comfortable. (And get you both more sleep, maybe, hm?)

  2. Healing thoughts for your husband. Hope remembering not to blow his nose will not be too difficult. Seems like an automatic reaction that some of use possess. It is sort of like not sniffing or blinking of the eyes. 🙂

  3. Sending him healing energy. Xx

  4. Sending your hubby healing vibes 🙏

  5. Probably a Neti-Pot is out of the question, or that thing that squirts water in one nostril and sucks it out of the other. Seriously, though, I’m glad it worked out well, and you’re in my thoughts.

    • Actually he’s using a rinse that was highly recommended 3 times a day. It’s not exactly a neti-pot but might serve the same purpose. Thank you for your thoughts, John.

  6. I hope he recovers quickly

  7. Hopefully this will make him feel much better. (And for the record, after those post op instructions I wouldn’t be able to think about anything BUT blowing my nose.)
