Home! I’m discharged from the hospital and have sorbet

I am home! There is grapefruit-peppercorn sorbet.

My surgeon pulled the nasal tampons out and that is so much more accurate a name that rocket. Like… wow. I could immediately breathe better than I could before I went in and that was while I still have swelling and a brief nosebleed. (Totally normal.)

Seriously. I really did not understand how much my airflow was restricted.

Meanwhile, on the audio front, I’ve recorded a Before, After Surgery, and Day After Surgery snippet using the same piece of text. I’m going to do one more in a week, after some of the swelling goes down, but my initial reaction is that I have more instrument to use.  Plus, I called Mom and Dad and they say I sound like me.

I will do more in-depth stuff about the recordings when I do that post.

The big thing to know though is that I’m home, I’m not in any pain, and I have sorbet.

  1. Glad to hear it. We are fortunate to live in a time and place where so many complex procedures can be done with minimal invasion.

    [begin-bad-joke]On a side note I’m not sure what they did for this in olden times, but I imagine the village cobbler had a side business re-purposing his old shoe stretchers into nasal friendly ones. [/end-bad-joke]

  2. I wish you a speedy recovery! Thank you for you excellent books and humane and thoughtful blog.

  3. Sorbet, kitty, and oxygen — what more could a girl ask for?

    I think having nasality removed can only help your voice. You can always fake that if you need it, but it’ll be nice not to have it all the time.
