Murphs gift to all the Zuki-Melters
To anyone who's ever braved a Zuki-Melt and set up camp near Murph's Portable Hilton... You can sleep well this coming year... Along with the rest to come!
That's right folks, I had the Snoring Surgery... Finally!
(Just for you, Bedford Boys!)
I had my tonsils taken out, my uvula snipped, and my nose reconstructed. (Years ago I got into a scuffle of sorts which involved my nose being tapdanced upon, never did heal right and for the last 10 years I've not been able to breathe through it.
So... the surgery was yesterday morning. Mom (of Yellow Trail Fame) drove down from Chicago and we're spending the week together, her being a retired nurse and all she's quite handy to have around.
As for the pain.. the vicodin is a good thing, particulary mashed up in some applesauce which goes down REAL smooth.
I can't talk yet, probably not until Friday, but I've managed to squeak out a whisper or two from time to time. Besides that and I'm just dying to blow my nose (can't blow, only allowed to dab at it with a kleenex.)
And boy let me tell you... that "Nurse Call" button is a handy thing with a cutie nurse like Lori. "Ding" "Hi Murph." (barely whispering) "Can I have some more jello/applesauce/kleenex/water/juice"
