. . . . . . . Exploding Volcanoes

I have to laugh when I see that my last post was about how great I have been feeling, since I am posting the opposite today. I don't know if it is because of a change in the weather, allergies or what, but I am having terrible issues with pressurizing my ears. Since my surgery where my eustation tube was sealed to fix my spinal fluid leak, this has been an issue that I haven't been able to "fix".

It feels like my head is in a cloud and I just can't quite see straight. There is so much pressure built up behind my right ear, I feel as if my head will simply explode or cave in. It started in the morning and has increased as the day has gone on. Now I have a terrible headache. I took some OTC meds, but I don't want to take the "heavy meds" because they make me out of it and loopy. I can't be out of it, because today is a day for celebration...

Daven Hale Brown turns 3 years old today!

I can't believe my "baby" is three. No more babies at our house now! We have spent much of the morning and afternoon making cakes and frosting. Perhaps as an unintentional reflection on how I am feeling, I made a chocolate volcano cake, that looks like a volcano that has erupted. I guess it had too much pressure built up, too. :) Hopefully I will be feeling better soon and I will be able to enjoy this day with my family, celebrating my sweet, sweet little "D", one of my greatest reasons for living!
