Ok friends.....I was feeling so overwhelmed this morning, I had 2 doctor appointments today and one of them was with my nasal surgeon.....I am still not able to breathe and I was feeling defeated and disappointed and then finding all the mess Sammi Saperstein made overnight just pushed me over the hill! I will be having more surgery probably in 2 months....this time he fixed my septum, external nasal valves and added support to my nasal tip. He was hoping that was all I needed....well, it is not! He needs to go back in and use bone grafts to reinforce the internal nasal valves.....hopefully this will be it.....

Adding my prayers for you and Sammi to all the others. Prayers for healing and strength.

I truely feel for you, it's so dissappointing when you find you need yet more surgery. It's not only is it painful, but horrible being away from home missing beloved pets. I will add you to my prayer list and pray this will be the fix you need. In the meantime, let go and rest in the Lord's strength, he alone knows exactly what you need right now. Lynne in OZ

I'm sorry that you need another surgery and wish you all the best. Hugs and prayers for you, dear Vicki!

So sorry that your surgery did not completely fix the problems you are having...adding Sammi to the mix one can certainly understand why you are feeling overwhelmed... we are with you! Keep the faith and stay strong.

Thank you......

More waiting, more patience, more prayers, and more moolah (money). I'm so sorry. I know you were counting on this previous surgery being the fix-all.

You nailed it!!! Especially the moolah part.......even though insurance does pretty good, it's another 2 months of buying breathe rite strips although I found a good deal on a bulk box at Sam's Club😊

I hated it too, Lillian, but I have had to learn that we must advocate for ourselves and Docs are not the know it alls they think they areπŸ‘¨πŸ»β€βš•οΈ

Wow, thank you, Karen.....😍😘

Not being able to breathe normally is frightening enough. Sammi seems like a lot for you to cope with, in normal circumstances. I do hope things improve for you soon. Sorry to hear another surgery is needed.

Me too, Toogie but this will not defeat is a new day and I can feel all the love and strength you are all sending me.......can't tell you how much this helps!

by pennifold 9d ago

Oh! Vicki, I am so sorry to read this. I wish you lived close to Dr Nasef (from the Botched TV series) He seems to be a fabulous doctor. Good luck with Sammi it must be so trying for you all. Love Chris

basketkase by basketkase 8d ago

OMG, Chris.....I watch them all the time and told Jim if this guy doesn't take care of me this time, I am going to try to get on Botched.......that is so funny you thought the very same thing.....great minds, right? πŸ€—

pennifold by pennifold 7d ago

Definitely, great minds - I love that show too. He certainly has a great reputation and everyone he helps out are really happy with the finished product. I love to see the ones who really need it due to natural deformities or due to accidents. On the other hand it amazes me how many people want to have plastic surgery to make their lips, butt, boobs etc bigger, but It takes all kinds to make the world go round. Love Chris

by dailylaundry 9d ago

Oh, my, Vicki - I am so very sorry you are going through this. The pain is awful and to still not to be able to breath - I believe doctors' really don't have a clue how painful some procedures are! Between this and Sammi - no wonder you are feeling so down! Please know you are in my prayers - please take it easy - I am sending you loads of hugs to you, Laura
