Recovery has been going well after my sinus surgery. I couldn’t believe how exhausted I felt for almost a full week after the surgery though. I didn’t do much but just stayed in bed trying to recover. That’s when good shows and magazines came in handy (at least after a few days when my eyes stopped aching. I felt a lot of preassure around the eyes and I couldn’t smile for a week because the cheeks where also aching and swollen).

All in all, the recovery wasn’t that painful. I still have some ache in my sinuses but maybe it’s because i’m getting so much air through them now! 🙂

Russel came to visit me as well. He is doing so well! He’s a bundle of joy who rarely sits still. He is spoiled rotten with healthy food, long walks and lots of love.

“Holy crap, that’s what you had in your nose??” That’s what Casey said as the doctor removed the plastic stuff after a week. After that my taste and smell was back and the first thing I had was some yummy chocolate.

So far it has been great. I’m still tired and trying to take it easy. I can’t believe how well i can breath through my left nustril. Unfortunately, the right side was bleeding so much that the doctor couldn’t get to it but the left was worse anyways. So thankful I finally did this.
