double-twist

You must be joking

I'm away at a conference next week. I set up my hotel reservation and such back in early September. This morning I find out that the conference hotel is overbooked, so they've transferred my reservation for the first night to a different hotel at the airport instead of the conference hotel. So much for any plans to get together with people that evening or sleep until a reasonable hour the next morning.

"We apologize for the inconvenience" has to be one of the least meaningful sentences in the English language.

Well, that was unhelpful

I just got back from the hospital. Today was the follow-up appointment with the ENT after a CT scan of my sinuses earlier this week. The idea was that he would tell me what's wrong and what could be done about it.

It was a nice theory, at least. He said the scan came out normal, and while he could certainly correct the airway problem (one side of my nose is pretty well blocked off), it probably wouldn't help. In other words, he doesn't know what the problem is and he can't help me. I have to go back to my GP, maybe an allergist, maybe a neurologist.

I asked him if there was anything I could do in the meantime to make it hurt a little less. I'm tired of being in pain every waking minute of every day.

"Mmmmm, I don't think so."

Great.

Back to square one, I guess.
