Rough Night

I didn’t have a good night. It started with coughing, then the ear started having a few sharp pains. Poor Paul had to get up to get my a painkiller. I continued to cough later in the night. Paul had to get up with the baby, so I had to weave my way to the kitchen to take something for the cough. Back to bed, but couldn’t fall asleep.
I gave up around 7:00 am and went in the kitchen to get all my Rx and a drink since I didn’t want to wake Paul again. Yes, another day in bed… another day away from my computer and getting work done. No matter what a mom has been through, nothing can keep her from feeling guilty about not doing housework and taking care of the kids.
Still have to eat soft foods. Eating anything crunchy like cereal is uncomfortable on the ear. Just weird, not painful.
Forgot to mention Dr. Peter Roland of Southwestern Medical Center is the one who performed the surgery. He did not cut any hair and the stitches are right behind the ear — hard to see. We took a picture, but I don’t think it’s visible.

    I am having this same doctor … my surgery is August 4. Wow, we are having the same doctor who will do the implant with the same manufacturer.
    Wow, your surgery didn’t take that long… that’s good. I will have bilaterial surgery so… it might be five-hour surgery, give or take.
    Hope your hook up is successful. 🙂

  1. Good to hear you’re steadily improving, and getting up and around. 🙂 Sorry I didn’t get to e-mailing you this weekend… Gnomedex was a little crazy. But I’m EXPECTING you to be there next year!!
