Update: Surgery and Recovery

Thanks so much to all of y'all for your thoughts, prayers, and encouragement over the past week!  

Last Monday, I went in for my my 3rd (and hopefully last!) sinus surgery at UPenn.  
It was a 12 hour day (a 3 hour surgery), and needless to say, 
I was exhausted by the time I got home. 

It's been a rough recovery, I pretty much have a constant pounding headache and "face"-ache, and I'm still very sore and swollen :(

Thankfully, my parents drove up from Florida to help take care of both me, and the baby during all the craziness.  They cooked, cleaned, and cared for us all so well!

I spent most of the week lounging in my cute new pajama's my mother-in-law sent me :)

and finally got dressed yesterday!
well, if a sweatshirt is getting dressed ;)

....and watching a lot of this

...and eating lots of applesauce and yogurt. 
I can't WAIT to finally eat (and taste!) regular food again.  I'm thinking this will be my first meal:

Hopefully will be up to blogging on the regular this week!  
Thanks again for all your well wishes!!

Glad to hear you're on the mend lovely! Sinus surgeries are no fun I've had, wait for it, 6 in total! Big fat yuck-o. So I can relate to the drowsy-ness, wanting to sniffle-ness and soreness. Popsicles were my life saver!

Prayers for a quick recovery doll!
