I feel like I’m going through metamorphosis as I enter the third decade of my life. I had surgery on my nose 4 months ago and just 5 days ago, I went through laser eye surgery. Before the nose surgery, the last time I was in the hospital for any length of time was two and a half decades prior – it really does pour when it rains. The nose has recovered nicely and I think I’m at 99% recovery on the nose. Anyways, I’m in the 5th day of recovery from the laser eye surgery. This is more for a personal account of what the first five days felt like as I want to remember what it felt like post-op as I seemed to have already erased the memory of what the pain felt like during my nose surgery recovery. I have this fantastic ability to literally erase memories of things I don’t like, which is both extremely useful and sometimes a hindrance.
