Surgery

On Tuesday morning I had surgery to correct a number of issues with my bite. That essentially means I paid someone to break my face in multiple places and then put it back together again.

Interestingly, the pain is not the worst part. The worst part is trauma such surgery does to the sinuses, which resembles nothing so much as 100 Austin allergy seasons.

I'll have pictures later. Nothing too gross, like all the bloody mucous that was streaming out of my nose on Wednesday. Mainly just some shots of me in the hospital, and some comparison shots from the orthodontist.

Bloody mucous. You really should stay away from the poppers if this happens again...
I learned it from watching you, OK? I learned it from watching YOU!!!
Mike had that or similar surgery. People told him he was going to lose weight. He used it as an excuse to drink chocolate and peanut butter milkshakes all day long. He didnt lose much weight. Heee.

Hope it all heals up quickly and doesnt hurt you too much. Mike had SO much swelling at first, but healed up nicely.
Yeah, right now the swelling is the only really annoying part. The rest is pretty manageable.
