On day 4, I finally sneak a glance into mirror. I am not at all surprised to see how bruised and swollen I am. I knew this was normal- It would gradually get better over the course of the next couple of weeks. My husband, however, is unable to look at me and is having a difficult time dealing with this. Oh we.. He will just have to deal .. 🙂
I am feeling tired and sleep a lot.
When it was time to take a shower, I was able to remove the headdress. I decided to take a picture with my iPhone and send it to my daughter, who had not seen me yet. My eyes are dark purple and I am bruised on my cheeks. My neck actually has very little bruising. I’m excited to see the outcome and know that I will have to be patient.
Having a facelift is a big deal- don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. The older you are the slower the recovery time.
