What a week, and can I just say what on earth was I thinking? I had my upper and lower jaw surgery at Utah Valley Regional on Monday with the surgeon saying that I would probably only have to stay 2 days in the hospital. I actually came home (and didn't step into the house) until 7:00 p.m. on Friday evening. I feel pretty weak and look, well, lets just say that a mug shot of a person in jail generally looks better than I do.
To say that my face is swollen is the understatement of the year, but I'm starting to feel a little better. Yesterday morning my pulse was recorded at 34 and I having this weird sense of vertigo. Since the entire top of my jaw was moved forward, my nose has been bleeding quite a bit and when its not bleeding, it drips like a 2 year old who doesn't know how to wipe. Its strange, but I can't feel most of my chin, lips, and cheeks. When I get feeling a little stronger, I'll post some before and after pictures.
I appreciate all of the help that has been given to us this week! Especially to my wonderful in-laws who have stepped in to help with the kids as much as possible. I don't know what I would have done without them.
