Seanie's deviated septum surgery  
Poor Seanie had to undergo surgery for a deviated septum yesterday.  (Not a happy Valentine's Day at all!)  I drove him to Kaiser and waited while they did the surgery.  I have no idea what it involved...I think they drilled a hole inside his nose so he could breathe better?  But I was mostly there to get him home safely and make sure he had all his medicines - oh, and to take embarrassing pictures:

My husband posted these pictures on Facebook.

Even though it's only been a day, I think he's going stir-crazy sitting around the house.  The pain medication is killing his ability to concentrate, so he hasn't been able to play video games or read - all he does is sit on the sofa and watch Star Trek reruns.  But his nose seems to be healing like it should, so it's as well as can be expected.

Funny story: When he was weighed in by the doctors, one commented that his weight seemed OK...until she read his chart and realized he gained 11% of his weight since his last visit. Then she told him to watch it, or he'd be unhappy and unhealthy forever!

Yikes! I have a deviated septum, too, and it's been a dream of mine to one day breathe with both nostrils (I haven't even as a child--I broke my nose as a toddler), but I'm too chicken to go through this! (Can't he not use his nose at all for a little bit?)

But glad he got through all right!

He's still using his nose - he's got some splints/stints/something that starts with 's' in there so he can still breathe. He's doing much better today, so I think that he'll heal up just fine - at least 'til Thursday, when he has to go back in and get the s-things removed from his nose.
