That's exactly what I told the doctor when he removed the bandages the day after my facial surgery. IT WAS TOTALLY AMAZING. Even now I can't believe it and it's only Day Three. By tomorrow the HORRIBLE bruising and swelling will sure to be down to a dull minimum and already, no can believe how fantastic my face it beginning to heal. Even my kid said, and I quote: SERIOUSLY. YOU LOOK LIKE ALMOST 20 YEARS YOUNGER. Now did I raise an astute kid or what??
So here's how it went down. I got to the doctor's office by 6:30 in the morning. By 7:00 he gave me my medical cocktail which included 40 milligrams of Valium, btw. What could be bad, right? Next thing you know we walked into a room where there is a most comfortable, wonderful leather chair... kinda like a dental chair... placed in the center of the room. Luckily, I can't tell you what happened next, for boom. I was out like a light 1-2-3. For the next three hours the Genius of All Men then worked on my eyes and my sagging neck and finally, wrapped my head with all kinds of gauze or whatever. BOOM. DONE. Painless and miraculous. And best of all... this prince of all miracle makers told me the procedure went PERFECTLY FINE!
Next, Claudia brought me straight home. I then set up my bedroom quarters right there next to the recliner in my family room and I proceeded to lay out all my meds etc. Granted, I looked absolutely horrible but hour by hour I was beginning the remarkable recovery process. That night Denise, the woman I hired for two evenings, came and stayed with me and helped me with whatever I needed. Who could ask for more?
The next morning I went back to Dr. Genius' office, he took the bandages off my head and right smack off the bat, Claudia exclaimed: OMG... YOUR FACE LOOKS HEART SHAPED AGAIN. Which naturally gave me the courage to check it all out for myself. I was handed a mirror and immediately the first words out of my mouth were: IT'S A F-ING MIRACLE!! I LOVE IT!! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!! OMG. I'M IN SHOCK. THIS IS JUST SOOOOO INCREDIBLE! Bottom line: I could not thank the doctor enough is all I can tell you. I may have to put his kids through college, now that I think about it. HE DESERVES IT. For the first time in 30 years I NOW HAVE A NECK. AND A PROFILE. AND I HAVE NO POUCHES UNDER OR ABOVE MY EYES. Man... this is just the greatest experience ever!
I have pictures documenting each day's progress, beginning from when I first arrived back home. By tomorrow I just MAY be able to post one here. YIPPEE. I'll have to wait to see though, exactly how much I want to scare everyone. Therefore, proceed at your own risk. Although I will admit... whatever I put up, will be FIVE THOUSAND PERCENT BETTER THAN WHEN I FIRST STARTED OUT.
In the meantime, I've had lots of friends stopping by to check it all out and EVERYONE of them are as amazed as I am. In fact, several came over tonight, bringing in Chinese food and we all sat around eating and having a fabulous time. Am I blessed or WHAT?? I'm thinking that if I wait another month or so, I just may be able to register in high school all over again.
So basically... to anyone who is even THINKing of having some plastic surgery call Dr. Harley IMMEDIATELY IF NOT SOONER. You too can look four million percent better. I am SO thrilled I did! Whoops. Sorry... time for me to run take just one more pain killer now, just to be on the safe side. Trust me... those meds are as miraculous as the procedure itself. Which I'm already thinking I may need to take again when the stitches come out Wednesday. Talk about psyched!!
