The post-nasal drip started last Sunday night and had progressed to full sinus and ear stoppage by the time we got on the plane to Cancun on Wednesday morning. The, er, nasal effluvium, was quite nasty by Thursday, so off to la farmacia on Friday morning for some sulfa pills which at least helped to the point where I didn't have to take four naps a day to keep going. The improvement seems to have plateaued somewhat short of "healthy" but I still have several days to go on the medication so I'm hoping for the best.
At any rate, through the fog of medicine and pile of tissues, I did notice that Cancun is incredibly beautiful, and I will be spoiled forever as far as ocean swimming goes. Almost 70 people flew in for the wedding, so I got to catch up with lots of family and friends. Rob and Cindy were originally expecting about 40, so the party overflowed to an adjacent resort to accommodate us all. The ceremony itself was by turns beautiful and hysterical, and ultimately, they couldn't have scripted it better.
See you in Houston for Christmas :-)
