It’s been a little more than 48 hours since my surgery, and today I got to blow my nose for the first time. Doctors orders. That old saying “you don’t know what you miss until it’s gone” has probably never been applied to something so mundane.
Recovery is going well. There is minimal swelling, and I am finally feeling relief I haven’t felt in months. I want to thank all my friends for their support and encouragement, and especially my wife for being such a good doctor and my mom for coming to Bismarck to help take care of her “baby.”
