A New Nose, Eh why not ;)


So I did it! I have wanted this surgery since I could say the word nose or knew what a nose was...I have had my doctor picked out for years! Dr. John Clayton. AMAZING! So my surgery was today and it took 3 hrs. I have never experienced general anthesia, so I was really nervous thinking about going under the knife. I had my Dad just drop me off at the front and I proceeded to go in by myself. I tried to act all tough girl like no I don't need my daddy to come with me, but I was freaking out inside! As I turned around to walk away from the car my Dad said well good luck, I love you! Then he said hold on, let me take one more look at that shnoz! HAHA! Jk, he said let me take one more look at that nose, I'm going to miss it. I started thinking to myself, I'm going to miss this nose too..it has brought me alot of joy in life, that is sarcastic. The day has finally come because this has been my dream my whole life. If you grew up with me you would know this too. All my old friends and neighbors texted me today because they were anticipating this as much as me. Anyways, I walk in and meet the lovely nurse that would be taking care of me,and she looked legit so I was happy. She told me to put on the gown and I really had no idea what way it went, I was too embarrassed to ask her so I just guessed. I did put it on the right way, because they didn't tell me to fix it, but my cute pink undies wer sticking out from behind. I also had to wear booties and what looked like a shower cap. It was not cute, but who needs to look cute during surgery! Well I kinda did, this was an important day. I was scared until I met the blood doctor, his name was Dr. Foster. He made me feel so comfortable, he told me I know when I see a beautiful woman but I also know when I see beautiful veins, and yours are the most beautiful I have ever seen. He is like you work out right? Uh yeah! HEHE! I was thankful for the compliment. Next he had me follow him into the E.R. and I suddenly felt like I was on a episode of Grey's Anatomy, especially once I saw the operating table I would be laying on. I got freaked out and started to tear up. I wanted to say nevermind I like my nose, I'm peacing outta here! Dr. Foster could tell I was nervous so he put some nervous juice in my IV and about 30 seconds later I thought WOW this is an incredible feeling, and can I have more? He then goes on to inject what he called my happy juice and I do not remember a thing following. Because that is exactly what it was, HAPPY JUICE! I was out! I woke up in a bed not knowing where the crap I was and then remembered holy moly I have a new nose! I was happy to be alive and well! I came home and have felt pretty good the whole day, not alot of pain just tired. My dad came home sick from work today and hung out with me, he said I just rambeled all day to him. I was loopy! He told me it was the most I have talked to him in years...sad :)! I must have been talking alot, he told me he enjoyed conversation with me even if it did not make sense. I'm drugged and I'd like to keep it that way. Thanks to Megan and Jessie for bringing me a smoothie and hanging with me, I have the two best friends in the world...literally! Thanks to my Mom for waiting on me hand and foot all day,I love my mom. We are having a slumber party tonight downstairs because she has to be with me 24 hrs. I am glad that I could have surgery just so I could hang with my mom and dad all day. It has been nice. Here is a picture, enjoy! HA HA! No laughing please! I'll take picutures of the finished product on Monday.

First I would like to know if I can see Kristens boobs? I AM TOTALLY KIDDING! OK, seriously though, I think that you could look like Attila the Hun and you would still be beautiful. From the comments already posted on here I think it's a wonderful testament to the kind of person you truly are. Love ya kiddo!

Lisa said...

ARGH! I am DYING to see a picture of the finished masterpiece! I can't tell you how close I came to going to fusion on Tuesday, even had a friend to take Jack to pre-school so I could make it. Then Joel had free time and we ran around, and I justified it by telling myself you weren't going to be there to teach anyway, since you were fresh out of surgery. THEN Joel tells me you WERE working that day! UG! OK, we are SO there on Sunday, I swear.
