Bedside Blogging

posted on: Friday, October 29, 2010

Yesterday I went in for surgery for a deviated septum. I've been avoiding this surgery for about 16 years. When I was in fifth grade a boy in my class decided to show off his ninja moves during recess. Unfortunately during one of his spinning kicks his dr. Marten boots made contact with my face, resulting in me getting knocked unconscious and waking up to a pretty bad broken nose. The next day I was staying home from school and went grocery shopping with my mom. She grabbed some butter out of the cooler. I was standing behind her and as she turned around I got whacked in the face with a block of butter. More unconsciousness, and more damage to my nose. Later we heard back from the doctors saying that I would have to come in and get my nose RE-BROKEN to set it. I refused to have it broken for a third time that week. So basically since then I have only been able to breath through my right side of my nose. Over the last couple of years it's been getting harder to breath and so I decided to finally bite the bullet and get the surgery.

So far I feel like I'm healing pretty well. I just have a few bruises around my eyes and nose, but I can FINALLY breath and I am sooooo happy. I've been saving up some outfit posts from earlier in the week, so hopefully I won't fall too far behind on the blog.

I would just like to say that I appreciate everyone who stops by my blog. Thank you so much, and thanks for listening.


  1. That is some serious bad luck! Hope you get better soon!


  2. Ah that sounds sooo painful! But sounds like the surgery will definitely improve things for you. I hope the recovery goes quickly.

  3. oh honey! i hope you continue to recover well!!

  4. Ouch! (probably an understatement!) Get some rest and hopefully you will heal quickly!

  5. oh my. i hope you feel better. get lots of rest.
    i just found your blog and it is so very lovely. <3
    happy halloween.

  6. Oh-My-God. I can't believe the nose history here. WHAT are the chances your mom whacks you the next day, accidentally?! :( Poor thing! And not being able to breathe through one of the two nostrils for so many years!? How awful.

    Good for you for working up the courage to get this done, finally. I'm glad to hear you're on the mend and things are looking up :)
