Between the devil and deep sea

A quick update....

I had a CT scan done on last Saturday to check the current condition of my sinusitis -the doctors have changed my health status from Pan sinusitis to Chronic pan sinusitis .This means that damage is extensive and the surgery is inevitable,but at the same time since it involves part of the skull, the consultant doc has told us that it is going to be risky and complicated ,irrespective of whether a machine does it or a surgeon.

Now I have to decide what to do - to go for it and risk it or not go for it and let my health deteriorate gradually. Iam on steroids for another thirty days.

We are also mulling over the option of going for the Indian system of medicine - Ayurveda. The doc has also suggested the same.Since Allopathy has given us no hope, we'll give it a shot.

Thanks everyone for your mails .Apologies for not replying to some of you ,especially Jana and Anita . I am not keen on turning my nice pleasant blog into a chronicle of my health ,but I thought I owe an update to all who visit deepashome regularly.

As far my mood is concerned, Iam cheerful, pleasant,doing all my daily activities and look absolutely healthy (atleast externally) :)

Before I take your leave, I thought I'll share a pic of a brazilian embroidery project which one of my students, Sobha did as part of the online course.I love the way the roses have been stitched and the colors too.





Will be back with my stitchy posts soon...

Love,luck and sunshine,
Deepa

Deepa... all day yesterday I was thinking of you, I must have known you were going to make a post... I was worried because we had not heard from you in a while... I should have emailed you, but I hate to "bother" people and I knew you would let us know what was up sooner or later... I am sorry to hear of your plight and I wish you all the best and am sending positive thoughts your way... we have not forgotten you. Thanks for sharing the BE... lovely. Hugs.
