Hello all. I finally had my skin cancer surgery on my nose and it was successful, but not much fun. Before I left, Larry gave me a hug and said "I have been praying all week for you". The biopsies (5) were done Wednesday with the skin cancer doc. I was there for about 6 hrs. Thursday I went to the plastic surgeon for reconstructive surgery. Everything went well, according to the doctors, but I am red, white, and getting bluer around the eyes. :yikes: I took a pain pill when I got home and got really sick with vomiting and diahrea. I finally started to feel better yesterday where I could finally eat. I didn't expect this much trauma as I never had/or want to have any facial surgery. This was a time where the caregiver had to have a caregiver, and I was prepared for that. I had the kids take me to the doctors and Larry's caregiver stayed with him. Larry didn't know what to think when I came home Thursday, with no bandage, but with the reconstructed part on my nose, swelling and oozing galore. He just stared at me! I think he felt helpless but was glad I had others to help me. This morning my eyes looked little worse. I said "well Larry, what do you think of your blushing bride now?" He said "I just feel sorry for you Julie".
It's time for me to put on my frozen peas pack. Hope you all have a Happy 4th. :cocktail:
