I had to go pick up Cash from school today - he has a sinus infection and apparently he was a little lethargic. Of course he seemed much better when I got him home.

He's been sick for three weeks straight now - first a cold, then pneumonia, then this sinus infection. It is exhausting. I wake up in the middle of the night listening to him breathe, trying to decide if he needs medicine. It would all be much easier if he would give up and breathe through his mouth sometimes, but no, he insists on trying to breathe through his stuffy, runny nose.

Speaking of sinuses, the word sinus now has a whole new meaning to me since I've begun studying EKGs. Last night I studied ventricular arrhythmias and atrioventricular blocks. I know you'll be interested to know that a type II, second-degree AV block has multiple p-waves followed irregularly, but often at a regular ratio, by QRS complexes. Installation of a pacemaker in that situation can restore a regular sinus rhythm.
