I have been noticing something different about Colton lately.

But I could never pin-point what it was.

Until he was standing above me one day as we played.

And I got a good look at his nose.

That just does not look right for a five year old!

So I made an appointment with our local ear, nose, and throat guy.

Sitting in his office today he asked me what the problem was.

I pointed to my own face to show him… "This thing, I dont know what its called, but it looks a little swollen.  And like it is going to block Coltons breathing soon."

"Has he had trouble breathing?  Been snoring?  Been complaining at all?"

"Well, no.  I just thought that thing (pointing again at my own face) looked funny."

The Dr. just nods and says, "Its totally normal.  He has a deviated septum.  Don't touch it.  Don't do anything about it.  Unless he has problems breathing, then come back."

"Oh!  Great.  I am glad its nothing to worry about. (pointing again at myself) What is that thing called anyway?"

And the doctor, not even cracking a smile says,

"Your nose."

*crickets*

Gee. Thanks Doc.

  1. I too have a deviated septum – we are obviously part of a very exclusive club!!!
    I much prefer to breathe through my mouth (which means I wake with a dry mouth and always have a glass of water by my bed), but can use my nose if I have to – but I am a bit noisy!

  2. HAAAAAA HAA HAA HAA HAA HAA!!!!!
    Not about the deviated septum thing, but about the nose thing. That’s one funny dr! What’s funnier is he didn’t even know he was being funny!!
    Wow, you’ve been a busy blogger this week. I need to get caught up!

  3. Just found your blog via…well, via several of my friends, actually, and was reading back through some of your posts. You are HILARIOUS! This totally cracked me up 🙂 And by the way, my hubby has a deviated septum too — so far, so good.
    Love your blog!
