Well, for the most part it is. I now have a new splint that I will wear at night. Now I will post some new pictures, and no I didn't edit these photos because they really don't need it. I still have some ugly bruising on my eyelids and on my face, but it's not too noticeable in pictures luckily. Even if I put makeup on my eyes, I don't think I'd be able to cover up half of the ugly bruises on them. Now back to the splint removal, this has been the worst day so far because of this. Not only was I super nauseated this morning, but the pain associated with taking the splint off and having my nose cleaned was awful. I thought I was just going in to have the splint taken off, I'd forgotten all about the thorough nose cleaning. I was not happy when I realized what was about to happen. I asked the doc, "Is this going to hurt?" and he responded casually, "Of course.". And boy did it ever! I think he enjoyed it even. I would have rather endured the first days of surgery ten times over than to go through that. I think I get another one next week; it shouldn't be as bad considering I'll be more healed up by then. But seriously, I wanted to cry and strangle that horrible little man all at the same time. I'm just glad it's over with and that I was able to keep myself composed during it all. Oye!
I've never liked the way I look without make up on, so naturally, this isn't my favorite photo (or most of them for that matter).
I did put some lipstick on in this one (it helped just a little bit I think).
Yeah, I'm still a little swollen. Hopefully it's all gone before I go back to work on Monday.
And for those of you who don't remember what I looked like before, here you go. :)
