Hello all. For those of you who have been inquiring about my surgery, I’m happy to inform you that everything went well. My doctors were very pleased with the procedures and are optimistic about my recovery. With my arch bars out (metal hardware in my mouth) it is so, so nice. Its feels so good to run my tongue across my gums. I know that sounds weird but its true. lol…
So my skin graft for my eye also went very well. They took the skin from the back of my left ear. My ear is actually the most sore place on my body at the moment which is a very weird feeling. When I woke up in the recovery room I was not aware that I was going to have a giant patch on my eye. It was very frustrating because my eye itched and I couldn’t see. My mom told me I couldn’t wear glasses on top of the patch but when I got home I’d be able to wear a contact in my right eye. I was so out of it when she was telling me all this. When I got home I went straight to sleep and slept most of the day. Later I found out that I go back into my eye doctor on Friday to get the patch taken off. Fortunately it doesn’t get in my way too much when I sleep. I just find it very annoying, bothersome, and uncomfortable.
I try not to complain too much ’cause I know that everything’s going to be fine. Every day I’m reminded of how tryly lucky I am. Thanks to everyone for their continuous prayers and thoughts. They strengthen me greatly. I’m learning so much about patience and living every moment of every day to the fullest.
Love to all,
