I have an ulcer next to my anus in the fold where there is some swelling. It has caused me to be very uncomfortable and cleaning myself is very painful. I am returned to sitz baths. I also have a head cold and bad asthma and wonder if it is related somehow. I have spent two days like a zombie with no energy. Christmas Eve is a big day with two church services (I work there as a singer) lots of hymn singing and my children's choir and a duet with our professional tenor. Then we are on an airplane (after getting home at 1:00 a.m.) taking off from NY for California at 8:30 a.m. (it's an hour to the airport) to have Christmas with family there, like nothing ever happened. Somehow, I'll have to make it through. But I know that the symptoms can go and we can feel better. It's passing. I am grateful to get to see our family again. I am supposed to return to my other job in January but wondering if that is in the cards for me so soon. I feel so lousy. We have scheduled a kitchen remodel for the end of January and I was supposed to do a concert at the end of February. Is this all possible? I think I am crazy. I am four months post treatment.
