I'm Back... Sort Of

I was joking, before surgery, that I would come out looking like Nearly Headless Nick (of Harry Potter fame)... but I think it's actually more like Frankenstein's Monster, without the bolts.

Pretty much ear to ear, across the front of my neck.

But I have a voice.

And the back of my neck probably hurts more than the front, which mostly feels a little squeezed still.

I told Randall he should take a picture of my flesh wounds so that in a year, when I'm bummed out by the scar, I can look at the picture to see that it IS better than it was.

I really shouldn't be writing, I think, as the room is still swimming a bit... but, there you have it.

I'm home. I'm self-medicating. I'm mending.

That's enough for now.

: )


  1. Glad to hear you are on the mend :)

  2. Welcome back ! And just what are you self-medicating with ?!

  3. You've been in my thoughts and prayers...a hug across the miles to you!

  4. It's wonderful to hear that you're on the road to recovery. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  5. Frankenstein's Monster, eh? Alright!! So gruesome!

    You and Dave L. can sit and compare neck scars in the very near future, although I think you'll have it over on him.

    We're happy that you're heading towards recovery, scar and all! Oh, and don't forget neck scarves are "in" these days!
