3 Days After Surgery (well 2.5)

It's time to go back to work.  I feel like I worked out this weekend, but that's about it.  Everytime it hurt pretty badly, I took a Vicodine or Extra Stregth Tylenol.  I went shopping, I went to a concert and I spent time with family.  It was a typical weekend for me.  The draining finally ended Saturday after 1 and that was that.  Here are some pictures of my bruising and swelling from this morning and I am both a heavy bruiser and a terrible sweller (and speller) :)

  1. Wow, thanks for the blog. You have definitely reduced my anxiety about my upcoming procedure. Hopefully I'll be brave enough to post before and after pics. Smooches.

  2. Hey I'm having my procedure done this friday and I'm just now seeing your blog!! That discount still available??
