A straighter nose and a blackmail picture

So after having a broken nose for quite a few years I finally got it fixed. It's amazing! I can actually breathe without whistling through my nose. I've never thought of breathing well as a luxury, but I'll tell you it is the best thing ever. I feel light headed from all the oxygen. I also had not realized how crooked my nose was. After the bandages and the stints came out I took a good look at myself and thought, "I look a little different..." Yes, that would be the straighter nose. Luckily, Ty was in town for some of my recovery and took care of me and our little angels. Right after I had surgery, I was nursing Madden and burping him. He did a little bobble-head act and slammed right into my nose. While trying to get the blood to stop gushing, I pulled out a somewhat important stitch. Fortunately, the doc says he hopes it won't separate because then I'd have a hole between my nostrils! Um......no that's not going to work for me...so I'm just going to pretend I didn't hear that. Anywhooo...I was smart enough to document this little experience with a hideous, make-up-less picture with a bandage on my face and another glorious picture with me and London and my massively swollen nose. Can you tell I was on pain killers? My posterity better appreciate this humiliation.

I appreciate it.

Ty was a bad boy and paid for last night's meal. So, we're going to go out for sushi when we come for Christmas and it will be on us!

Hope the blessing went well today!

How is the nose feeling? I know how horrible it is I have had it done 4 times because of multiple accidents (yes my face is a magnet). Hope things are going well. Keep updating. Your kids are gorgeous
