Happy Halloween [Nov. 1st, 2006|12:45 am]

Well, if we were doing anything for Halloween I could make a most impressive show.  After nasal surgery this afternoon I’m wearing something called a “moustache bandage”, and it’s sopping up blood at a good clip (when I’m not spitting it out.)  Gore fest!  The surgery (my specialist claims that I’ll be able to breath through my nose after repair of a deviated septum and polyp removal) went well.  I have shims in my nose, I’m told.  After an initial mixup in which the nurse who checked me out of the surgery center told me I’d already gotten pain meds (should it hurt this much?) we called and sorted that out and the meds are doing their job.

So this weekend, if I look like somebody slugged me, it’s just the roto-rooter nose job.  In the meantime, I’m resting comfortably.  Though I scoff at the idea that I’ll be able to breath through my nose.

I remember my father getting a mole removed near his eye.
He looked okay when he came home - but when he woke up the
next day - late for him, he actually came to synagogue after
I had gone myself - he had what could only be described as a
red black eye. I was horrified, but he kept joking to the
congregation that Mom had hit him.

I just hope they didn't wreck your nose, because it was
lovely before. Then again if the doctor wrecked your nose,
doesn't J get to wreck his?

I'm a little puffy right now but it looks about the same otherwise, to me. J says it's straighter than it used to be, can't see it myself.
