I have a small cyst in my sinus cavity that is the culprit of some major headaches. I have an appointment later in the week with an ENT to see about getting the cyst removed, but until then, I am trying to muddle through. Most days, I am distracted by the perpetual presence of a headache, and I often feel fuzzy… as if I can’t think. It was one of the moments yesterday when I paused momentarily in the middle of my sentence to unfuzzy my brain.
“So, we will just listen to the teacher for the…ummm,” I said to the girls, rubbing my forehead.
“Instructions!” Maddie chimed in. “I caught your word, Mommy.”
I smiled at her. “What, honey?”
“You lost your word, but I caught it for you. That happened to me before. I couldn’t think of my word, but my friend Nicole catched it for me.”
These sinus headaches might be a constant nuisance in my life, but at least I have Maddie there… catching my words.
