Way back When-esday

Dateline: January 2010
Age: 8 months

This is one of my favorite photos of the kiddos (do I say that every week?). We took this at Animal Kingdom and it wasn't even posed. The kiddos both just sat down on the bench. I really want to try and recapture this shot again to see the differences.

Play along with Cheryl at Twinfatuation!

In other news, I went to the ENT today about my nose and he said it was not broken, but she did a real number on it. The way he described it is the bone part of your nose is like a pyramid and my daughter basically hit the bottom of the pyramid and it's shifted. The one part is pushing on the septum and that's why I can barely breathe out of my left nostril. He also said she really knocked my septum out of place too. So the options are to 1) do nothing (not gonna happen) 2) he could numb the outside and inside of the nose and use some tools to try and put it back into place. That works 75% of the time, but if it doesn't it may look worse and then I would need a septoplasty or 3) Wait until the swelling is down and have a septoplasty to fix everything. He also said since he would have to break my nose anyway if there was anything else I wanted done he could do that as well. Insurance will pre-approve the septoplasty but will not guarantee full payment until after they read the post-op notes from the surgeon. They will cover the anesthesia and operating room costs, but there's no guarantee on anything else. I'm opting for #3 and hoping for the best. We'll see what happens.

Sweet picture! Love it!

Ouch on the nose update. Your nose is so tender anyways so I can not imagine what you are going through. Wishing the best though! Keep us posted.

Amanda, I just adore their very specific postures and personalities in this picture!

Can easily see that it would be a favorite.

Wishing your nose quick healing, and thank you for playing along with Way Back When-esday!
