Surgery was successful, all I remember is going to sleep in the OR on Wednesday and waking up on Monday ha ha. My days are all off, I drove all the way to Scottsdale for a doctors appointment I don't have until tomorrow. I have to admit I loved getting out of my bed and seeing some sunlight.
Today I saw the Dr. he took out the sutures and the nose brace, but unfortunately for me the stints have to remain up my nostrils for a couple more weeks to give the bones time to heal correctly. I have black and blue around my eyes and cheeks, I've had to control the pain with drugs but am quickly getting off of those. Now I'm dealing with keeping food down, even a few bites of anything. Kayla has been bringing me peanut butter banana smoothies, it may take all day to drink but it tastes good and stays down, so I know I'm getting some protein.
|Now isn't that beautiful?|
I'm not someone with a whole lot of confidence in myself or my abilities to uplift and help others. I know some incredibly talented people, they have worked hard to become musicians, singers, athletes, cooks, authors, scrap bookers, doctors, attorneys. PA's, radiation therapist (I love them) I could go on and on, the point I'm trying to make is when she said those words to me two things went through my mind
#1. What a bunch of crap I have nothing to teach anyone, and if for some reason she's right, I don't want to do it anymore, find someone else to learn from. and then came # 2. Change your prayers. To my dear sweet friend thank you for giving me something new to worry about... Ha ha I love You.
