Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a safe and happy New Years! Doug and I had a relaxing one, watching football, eating delicious food, and taking little naps so I could make it to midnight! I have a lot more energy now than I did a few days ago, but I still get sleepy easily. My nose is healing up quickly, and besides the black eyes (still!) I'm doing great. However, there was a little complication at my post-op that absolutely traumatized me. 

I went in on Tuesday to get the splints removed that were in each nostril. They are big rubber tube things that look like this

(they are about 2-3 inches long)

So I had those huge things in my nose to hold my septum in place as it healed. Getting one taken out was incredibly uncomfortable and painful. But my doctor took one out, and then started on the other one. But he couldn't find it. (!!!!!)

Yes. It was lost somewhere in my nose. They apparently forgot to stitch it in after the surgery. So my ENT got his foot long camera device and had to search my nasal cavity for it. It took a little while, but he found it and removed it. By that point, I was crying and getting lightheaded and just wanted to go home. My parents got me a huge chocolate milkshake to help calm me down :)

Because of that incident, I have to do another post-op early next week to make sure it didn't mess anything I had to push my start date back to Wednesday for my new job.

Other than that fun experience, the past few days have been pretty laid back. Yesterday was my Mamaw's birthday, so we took her out to a surprise lunch at her favorite restaurant, Ruth's Chris. If you love steak, you must go here! Or if you love chocolate, you must order the chocolate mousse cheesecake! Mmmm...

Right now, Doug is running a 10K in the rain. Crazy boy! And that's all we really have planned for this weekend. We are just spending time at his parents' house until we leave Monday morning to go apartment hunting in Decatur! I am so excited for this! We want to move sometime in January so hopefully we find the perfect place soon.
