Monkeys on Monday

The title is due to a monkey I saw on TV this weekend.  It was a baby monkey and it had the biggest bona fide smile on it's face.  So cute.  

I am still alive.  Still recovering but alive.  Recovery hasn't been terrible although I do not recommend solely breathing through one's mouth if it can be helped.  I am starting to be able to breathe through my nose and that is a wonderful thing.  Still a lot of bleeding though which makes all my food taste kind of gross.  The only things that were really yummy this weekend were ice cream and sorbet.  Ice cream is a no-no because it produces mucuous but I had it anyway.  This morning, I'm having coffee and olives for breakfast.  Go figure.  I've got a follow up with the doc today at noon to get the little splints out of my nose.  I am very much looking forward to having them gone but am very much NOT looking forward to the process of getting them removed.  I think that is going to be awful.  (I hope I'm wrong.)  Aside from the doc appointment, I'll be resting and taking it easy today. 

I won't even attempt a food journal because it would all be lies anyway.  :D  (I don't know what I want from one minute to the next.)

Ee eww to not blowing your nose. I hate that feeling. Btw, I love to hear about your food journal. Sometimes my real food intake is very non-traditional. Can you take a pain med before getting unpacked. I'm a baby when it comes to pain!

No, thankfully.  My cheeks are still a tiny bit swollen but I look almost normal.

Ew-I can't imagine. It sounds horrible. I woke up with a stuffy nose and sore throat (again) and thought of what you are going through. Do you have big black eyes or anything like that?
