My Real Life

I’m Home

Today was the big day.

Sinus surgery.

It went well. 

She snipped out parts of my sinuses to make it easier for me to drain, and she also corrected the deviated septum.

So, now I’m home and it hurts. 

Quite a bit, actually. 

Interestingly, my front left tooth hurts the most, but I think it’s because it’s right under the stitches for the septum surgery.

The bruising hasn’t started yet, so the good news is, when the monkeys get home from school, I should still look relatively normal except for the splints up my nose and the big gauze thing holding it all together.  I don’t want to scare them.

My parents came over this morning at 6:15, as it was an early surgery, and they said that the monkeys were phenomenal.  They missed me and were worried about me, but they were just model children.

School mornings aren’t their favorite time, but, as always, when we needed them to be great, they were.

Never underestimate kids.

But, I’m fine, in bed, got my Netflix movies and Real Man is an excellent caregiver.

I’m a lucky girl.

Not a particularly stylish girl today, but a lucky girl.


  1. I’m so glad you’re home and doing well. Hopefully all the pain will be worth it. I can’t believe you did this in the middle of the play AND the Wooster Band coming. Do you still need dinner options for the group?
