All done

My septoplasty and turbinate out fracture went well. My mother in law said I was in and out of surgery realitively quickly and in recovery for as long as I was in surgery. The packing was awful, gave me a headache and hurt like hell to pull out (good thing I had Nate around to pull it out for me because I wouldn't have been able to do it myself). I'm still sore and since Lex accidentally smacked me it's hurt a little more but I'm trying to hold off on pain meds as long as I can in case we have another bumping accident. The only odd thing is the roof of my mouth right behind my front teeth is numb, which feels really wierd when I bump my tongue ring against it. I am glad it's over and I hope I'll be able to breathe through my nose soon.

I'm watching ER and I can't believe it's the end of an era. I've been watching for years and there have been few episodes that didn't make me cry at some point so I will miss my Thursday night date.

I should log off while I'm still a functioning person (i.e. before my lortabs kick in). But I wanted to send out a Congrats to Sarah on her new pregnancy (try not to worry honey) and to Nancy on the results of her recent test. And a big PINK hug to Shauna for the news of having a daughter baking in her belly.

Cate. You sure know how to inadvertently make a girl feel like shit! I clicked over to your blog thinking "damn, I haven't read this in a few!" and the very first post I read you give me a shoutout for my recent good news on my biopsy! Ugh. I'm sorry for being a bad bloggy friend!

About your surgery - I am SO GLAD it's over and here's to you breathing again!!! yay!!!

I'm so glad that your surgery is over and went well Cate! I hope that your recovery is quick, and that Lex doesn't wack you in the nose anymore. :) And thanks for mentioning me in your blog. ;)

Nancy have no worries, you are one busy lady, you have more blogs to read and more kids to keep up with. I just like to give shout outs on good news, especially since I am a horrible commenter.
