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.
