Truth telling time

Here we go.
The last three posts here on the blog have been auto posted because i've been in the hospital.
That's what this was all about.
So there.

I haven't wanted to write anything about it until now because:
1) i was raised to think sharing too much about ones illnesses is in poor taste (i still think that, by the way) and
2) i've been scared shitless.

I wouldn't normally be this scared, but this particular surgery had the very real risk of leaving half my face permanently paralyzed, and i've kind of been stuck on that fact.
Trust me, it's hard not to.
The surgery itself went well, considering it was, according to the surgeon, a lot harder than they'd expected.
So i guess i'm pretty lucky.
And i only had to stay there one night before they sent me home, and that's lucky too cause i absolutely hated being there.

But while my stay in the hospital was quick, my recovery is probably gonna take some time.
Right now, one side of my face is twice as large as it normally is and i still can't feel most of it.
Hopefully i'll regain the feeling and start to look normal before too long, but i plan to be a hermit for a while.
I'm not sure what that means for the blog, but since i'm not gonna be doing much of anything, it's bound to be a bit slow around here in the next couple of weeks.
There won't be any wardrobe posts for a while, that's for sure!

Monday night after the surgery, before i started to look like an extra on my beloved Star Trek
My hand, which is now a lovely shade of bruise blue
My sweet husband brought me some flowers
We forgot the flowers at the hospital, but my sweet Martin came by with some new ones later that day
Pretty ones too
Hey, maybe i'll just post pictures of flowers until i'm all better?

I hope this wasn't too weird or personal, i try to keep my real private life private, but concealing something like this, when i'm used to sharing so much, felt strange too.
So, yeah...
Ok, i'm gonna head back to the couch for more Star Trek watching, tea drinking and possibly a nap.
Hope everyone out there is happy and healthy.

  4. Little pumpkin! I'm glad that you didn't have to stay there long and I hope you recover quickly. Is this the end then? I mean, is everything taken care of, and you don't have to go back now?

    You can still do wardrobe posts, just wear your turban backwards! :)

  16. gosh I have to tell you that when you posted the original post about positive thoughts I thought you might be knocked up, so im not sure which is better, what your dealing with now or being knocked up. Either way, I am really super duper glad your doing better! You better get rested and better because one of these days when my man decides to propose to me, I will need to have you make me a spiffy wedding hat, with lots of pink, glitter and maybe a butterfly :)

    LOVE YOUZ and your fab blog
