Day 5: Healing

*sigh* I hit my nose AGAIN last night while I woke up in the middle of the night repositioning my pillow. My poor nose.

One of my nostrils was super ooey gooey grossness this morning, but after I cleaned it out it was fine for the rest of the day.

I get annoyed with dabbing my nose every few minutes because it drips with mucus so I just still keep a drip pad on because I'm lazy lol

Little to no pain today, haven't had to take a pain pill :) It only hurts when I touch it so I obviously avoid touching my nose at all costs.

Getting my splint off tomorrow which means he is probably going to clean out my nose too. Super nervous about both of those. I hope the cleaning doesn't hurt and I hope I like the results that I can see. I know it will get better with time but I still hope I like it.

Don't really have much to say today. I woke up swollen again, but it went down throughout the day.
I wore a bit of concealer today to cover up the bruises since it was mothers day and I wanted to look a little more presentable for my dear mother :)

Thats basically it! Oh also, I don't know if I've mentioned this but my top lip is basically stuck in place because of the swelling and my doctor said I should be able to move it normally again in 2 weeks. It's so funny though because I have THE most awkward smile now haha which is why I don't smile in these pictures haha.

**This picture is WITH makeup on** My bruises are still yellow !


  1. awuh, it'll get better!you'll love the result in the end, it's worth the wait. hang in there steph (:

  2. Read your twitter post about it hurting at night. Take it from someone who's put their body through more abuse than any little body should have to go through (haha) when you have a serious injury (or in your case, and "injury" due to surgery), you will feel more pain when you first wake up (sometimes...mostly applies to leg and arm injuries cause you might be stiff) and later on at night. I don't really know WHY it happens, but it's normal. Just some reassurance. haha

  3. You should totally take a picture of you smiling! Just for laughs >.<
    Thanks to your blog now i know surgery is not as easy as i thought, you go through a lot, if i were you, i would be soo stoked to see the final results!
