snap, crackle, pop
Ahhh..bubble wrap. There is something ever so addicting in popping that air. Funny thing is, that "crackle" has been the sound of the right side of my body for 1 week.
I suffered from a very rare side effect, called an air embolism, from my dental visit last Saturday.
It was scary.
The right side of my face blew up in seconds, and I knew the moment it happened it was bad..but I was in good hands.
I consider myself someone who is so laid back when it comes to anything "medical," but I can not put into words those moments. I am just grateful my "big sis" was there for me and always just a phone call away.
Luckily I had this entire week to recover and pop ever so many pills throughout the week. I start my 3rd rotation tomorrow with my face looking like my face. (Towards the end, I look like a battered wife from the bruising all over. On my last trip to Target with Mr. B, I kept waiting for someone coming up to me asking if I needed help.)
I just thought I should inform you of what happened for two reasons. One, so I can completely address it & identify that it happened and two, so I can completely close that chapter.
In celebration of my recovery, a former student brought these over in jest. I had to laugh..and of course indulge.
