swell

The doctor said the worst swelling would probably be on Friday, and sure enough today my face is swollen and stiff, and I feel like the elephant man. Actually now that I've been up and out of bed for a bit, I don't feel quite as swollen and blah as when I woke up. I showered and managed to shave without cutting myself, which is good considering how swollen I am.

Eating is tricky - I had to lick the cream of wheat off the spoon because of my upper lip being stiff and kinda numb. I'm going to try to get more food in me today, though of course I'm still on a liquid diet. My head really hasn't hurt at all, which is nice, I've just had some soreness and stiffness in my neck and other muscles, from lying down a lot and not eating much.

Oddly, the swelling seems to be affecting my hearing, as the electronic beeps of my cell phone and microwave both sound lower-pitched to me today. I'm not noticing that so much with the radio, though.

Well, I think I'm going to hook up my VCR and finally watch the tapes of Spaced and Black Books that Doug gave me two Christmases ago.

Once again, thank you all for your continued good wishes.

Hang In There
Hi Phil,

Glad to hear that the pain isn't bad, despite the swelling. It only gets better from here, right?

Re: Hang In There
Well, the swelling and such should only get better from here, yes. I won't be thinking it only gets better until I check in with the surgeon again this Wednesday. And then of course once everything's healed, I get operated on again for the implants, though that should be less of a deal than this operation.

Congrats
Hey, now that I finally have a connection to the interweb again, glad to hear you've survived your surgery, and I'd like to send best witches of course. Hope things get better. Enjoy your tapes; we've had to avoid watching Spaced so that we don't wear the tapes out permanently.

Re: Congrats
Spaced was really good, I should get it on DVD - the sound on my tapes is bad, or else my VCR to TV connection results in a lot of static, whichever.

Thanks for the best witches, they're well-behaved.
