Fixing my Ear, Nose and Throat in 5 Surgeries

I have undergone five surgeries since 2002. All five were ear, nose and throat (ENT) related. I removed my over-sized tonsils, which were causing very frequent sore throat. I was unable to breathe normally through my nose because of a deviated septum (the cartilage between nostrils) and excess cartilage in my nose. In addition, I was born without 1.5 out of 3 middle ear bones in my right ear which meant I was almost completely deaf on my right.

Here we go again

The second half of the semester starts tomorrow. Compared to the last, this has been a relatively smooth semester. Last semester was a nightmare and I’m very glad to have escaped that. I have 1 difficult module, 3 manageable ones and 1 that would be S/Ued (elective). In fact, I’m not sure if I have sufficient modules
