An old friend stepped up to take me to the surgery center and back. When
we got back to my place another old friend, Anne was waiting. I was handed off to Anne and
she watched over me for the next 24 hours. The perfect person to watch me
for that time. She is so gentle and caring. Like a Mom would be. We watched
“Road to Perdition” and “The Incredibles” on DVD then went to bed. I had to
sleep in the big comfy chair because the doctor’s didn’t want me to protect
me from swallowing something from the back of my sinuses and to also not
roll over onto my nose in anyway. I have to sleep like that for a few
nights. My nose is still bleeding a bit but it’s not been too much since the
When they put me out I didn’t even have time to count backwards at all. I
remember the nurse fussing with my blankets on the table and then saying
that the anesthesiologist was going to talk to me. Then I was out like a
light. The next thing I remember was being back in the recovery room. Then a
few minutes later my friend walked in. They left the room while I got dressed
and then we were out the door.
It felt really quick.
I talked to my doctor before all that and he said it looks like a group of
polyps that need to come out and that he’d clear out a passage for both
sides so I can breath better.
Since then I haven’t been able to breath through my nose but that’s because
of all the packing he put in there to help with the healing. I can’t blow my
nose at all. I hope I don’t have to sneeze during this time.
