Recovery is going well.
I had my staples out yesterday. 40 of them. I’m totally not joking but I wish I was. They really only hurt near my ear, where the skin isn’t numb, and I definitely cried when they were taken out. Luckily she took the last two out at the same time.
Pain medication has been going down hill for the past few days, which is really good. I’m not drugged out on narcotics all the time now. I’m taking a little extra to get through the night rather than waking up.
Other than that, I think I’m doing pretty well for eight days out. I hope I am.
I should get another picture of my head without the staples. Maybe tomorrow.
Oh wait. I have a birthday to celebrate tomorrow!
