The first cut is the deepest...

But the second cut takes WAY LONGER to heal.


{6 weeks post-1st surgery with my chest and circus jacket}

{7 weeks post-2nd surgery}

I had to make sure my face wasn't in the picture since all this crap with my thyroid has made my face puffy.  The gifts just keep on coming.

Today is 7 weeks since my 2nd surgery, which was 7 weeks exactly after my 1st surgery.  I am really glad it isn't 7 weeks ago.  And hopefully 7 weeks from now, things will be even better.
The surgeon used the same incision site for both surgeries which is good.  But the second time around, it is REALLY bumpy and pretty red.  It looks angry.  And hurts more than the first time around.

It will fade with time.  I am hoping the face puffiness goes away sooner though.  I'll take the scar as long as my face looks normal.

I am starting to really feel the affects of no thyroid hormones.  My goals for last night were to write a blog post, eat, and go to sleep.  And it was hard.  And it really bums me out because I have A LOT of stuff I want to get done.  There are a couple of posts I have been really wanting to get out and share (some serious, some funny) but I just don't have the energy to even type.

Maybe tomorrow...
