Where I Have Been

My time at the PC of late has been...sketchy. Basically just enough to work, waste time chatting with Todd and Brandon on Google Chat, and that's about it.

A little over 3 years ago, while we were building our house out in the country, my wife was assaulted -- attacked, really, in the parking lot of Don Pablos restaurant on a Tuesday evening, around 8 PM. She was alone, working late.

Two thugs beat her up pretty bad...for her laptop.

She broke her orbital bone, which required surgery. Her nose was also broke, but she never had it fixed.

3 years later, that decision is coming back to haunt us.

Over the past few months she hasn't been able to get her breath. She yawns all the time, never getting enough air.

So she finally decided to have a procedure done called Septo-rhinoplasty.

Basically the surgeon cut open her nose and moved it back in place. This was done because the Dr. discovered her nasal passage was, due to the assault, 98% blocked, thus causing (we hope) the air issue.

She recently had this done, and she's not doing well. We're unsure exactly what's going on but she has had a reaction to...something.

Maybe it's the Percocet? Maybe it's the Zithromax, maybe it's the Iodine that was used? We really don't know but hope to find out Monday.

Her face is so swollen right doesn't even look like all.

It's a terribly helpless feeling. All I can do is get her what she wants and sit in front of the TV and watch movies with her, change her drip pad (don't ask) and change her dressing every few hours.

So I have been watching lots, and lots of TV. And not much blogging.

Tomorrow we go back to see the Dr. to TRY and find out what we can do to get her swelling down.

The cocktail of Ex Str Tylenol, Benadryl, Zithromax and Keflex isn't doing enough.
