If you've been following me on various social media platforms, such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook (and if you aren't, I have to question my spamming skills considerably), then you are well aware that last week I underwent surgery and am now in recovery period.
Last Tuesday, I underwent a Bilateral Sagittal Split Osteotomy. Yes, it's just as dangerous as it sounds.
But in laymen terms, I basically had my lower jaw drilled, all of my bones broken, moved into a lateral position, and had metal plates inserted. My jaw is now wired shut for 8 weeks, and I am to survive solely on foods of the liquid variety (see: air) during this period. Thus, I seek solace by conjuring mental monologues vis a vis this blog of mine. In short, I currently resemble Don Zimmer (after the fight with Pedro) and the swelling has caused my face to be engulfed by the infinite number of chins that have formed. I'm actually tracking my progress by the number of chins I lose every day. 3 down, 7 more to go!
But seriously guys, a handful of you have sent me some very warm messages (I measured with a thermometer!) that truly touched me. I am beyond humbled with your kind words of support, which render this difficult recovery a little more tolerable. So thank you, and in return I bestow you with some pictures to look at (obviously taken well before the surgery) because I'm too drugged up on morphine to even curate a text surrounding my outfit, and if my thermometer 'joke' is any proof, my humor gland has completely shut off.
