Yes, It's Another Update!
Because there is not much skin or fat in the area between the corner of my eye and my nose, they had to do a little skin grafting kind of thing. So, the area involved was bigger than I had anticipated, but it seems to be healing up quite well. At first, I looked like a prize fighter, with a black eye that was almost swollen shut. But, now the swelling has really gone down and I get the stitches out on Wednesday. So, I'd say it's all going very well!
The surgery did not involve the tear duct either, so I really appreciate the prayers in that regard. After I get the stitches out on Wednesday, that should be the end of it. *crosses fingers* Boy, I sure am a lot better about putting on my daily sunscreen after all this. That's for sure. You all remember your sun screen as well, won't you?
Thanks, again, for everything peeps! As usual, you all ROCK! I've been thinking about starting up my daily gratitude journal again. This whole experience and the outpouring of love involved I think will need to go right at the top of the list! ((((((((((safe hugs to all))))))))))) xoxoxxo! :)
I don't spend a lot of time in the sun, but I do need to remember to use sunblock even for those short periods of time when I'm out in it.
One thing we have seen on our blogs and yours and others, when we all need some prayers and good thoughts from our blogger friends the come through and the prayers come through.
They all make us happy an dprivileged to know them.
peace and blessings and yippee!!
I have been thinking of you since I read the news. I wanted to comment before, but to be very honest (and I know it doesn't readily make sense) I was too scared to comment at the time. I am a huge wuss when it comes to medical/dental stuff and I just haven't been in a good place. Seeing you handle something like this and be in such good spirits now is encouraging and I'm so very relieved for you that you are okay.
Clueless: So glad to know I have a new reader--thanks! Kudos to you for exercising your courage. I did milk the whole surgery thing for a little while...then I got bored and restless. This time of year, there's just so much to do outside!
Thanks, Keepers! Yeah, I think there is definitely such a thing as the power of prayer...and the power of blogging!
Awww, thanks, Lynn! You're sweet. I'm glad you found this encouraging. I guess I did, too! Maybe I can get to the dentist soon for the toothache I've been dealing with for quite a while. ;)
Thanks, Kahless...and thanks for the sweet hugs!
It amazes me how many go out without sunscreen on here in Indy. It's a must.
Keep us posted.
Smiles to you and yours,
Also, have you written in this blog about the sadistic torture that you refer to in the blog description?
I have an email link on my site, if you want to contact me that way.
Sorry to be such a bother.
JIP: I hope you are doing well. Thanks for your well wishes and support. They mean a lot to me!
Austin: Thanks for thinking of me. It means a lot.
Clueless: I don't consider you a bother at all. Unfortunately, you just caught me at a time when I'm very behind on all my blogging requests.
NEWS FLASH EVERYONE! My son is going to be in a day camp this coming week. So...hopefully...I can get caught up on some bloggy things then. *crosses fingers*
THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE ALL! ;)
