The Swimming Pool of Doom!

So, this is mainly for your benefit really need to join Facebook, I think you would love it.

Brian and I received an above ground pool from some friends at the end of last summer. We got all ready and got it set up but realized a hose to our chlorine generator (a saltwater pool system) was broken. I thought I could fix it but couldn't so we ordered a new one...the problem was that we had already put the salt in and we couldn't put any chlorine in so....we had a bit of a swampy mess.



YAY! So Brian had his appointment with the surgeon, that we have waited for a month to get and the verdict is....he HAD a Perilymphatic fistula, or hole in his ear, which has healed itself improperly, making his ear think it's still there or something. So, the surgeon has diagnosed him with Endolymphatic Hydrops which he is treating with a 6 day steroid regimen, and a low sodium diet, to help relieve pressure in his ear. The surgeon believes Brian will be showing an improvement in two weeks and should be completely recovered within a month. YAY! Brian is bringing home is MRI and CT scans so hopefully I will be able to post those as well. Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes.
