First let me say the stents they put in my nose are out! Yay! I didn't realize just how big those suckers were. Ugh! Okay enough of that. Since my nose could be up to six months until it is completely healed I may as well share the story of how I got here. Last September I had a bad cold.....
"Oh, geez! Here we go!"
......and one day when I was walking into the living room and Freddie
was finally sleeping and not being a bugger was fast asleep on the couch, I looked at him and you know those times when they look so sweet and innocent when they're sleeping, kind of like the picture below, and you just want to snuggle them. I smiled and bent down to give him a kiss on the head.......
and apparently scared the crap out of him. He jumped up and whacked me in the nose.
Well, my nose hurt for a few weeks but I thought I'd probably just bruised it. I had a hard time breathing through it, but I figured that was just my cold.
Turns out my cartilage was twisted from the trauma. So after trying different medications the last option was surgery to remove some cartilage and turbinate from one side of my nose.
"And you wonder where I get my dramatics! Don't let the door hit ya on the way out when your done your story Momma."
Since I haven't been able to be on the computer much I've been trying to get some crocheting done. Miss Mindy's Momma, Gloria over at Hood's Happenings, sent me this wonderful crochet hook. She molds and bakes the handles right on to make them easier on your hands for crocheting. I just love it!! She also sent me instructions so I can do my own handles. How cool is that!
I made my first pair of crocheted slippers.
They went a lot faster than knit ones for me and I think they turned out pretty good. So that is the whole nose story. I can already breath better through it. Once the swelling is gone it should be amazing!
"I really do feel bad Momma. Oh, but before you go........"
"Can you pass me another bon bon!"
Seeing Goose's wonderful uplifting post today has inspired me to join the "See Beautiful" blog hop that is the second Friday of every month.
