Sam was more than excited to get the packing out of his nose. While, I know the misery that he has had with this surgery, I can't help but have a few laughs of my own!
Mylee wanted to know if Pops was gonna talk like that from now on!! Have you ever stuck a clothespin on your nose and tried to talk? If not, you should try it. I can't really determine if the sound that is coming from Sam's voice, sounds like the clothespin pinch.....OR.....if it sounds like he has been inhaling helium!!!!
Whatever it is.....it sounds really funny! I assured Mylee that Pops would eventually get his NORMAL voice back.
At the ENT's office, one of the nurse's was the one to remove the packing. Instead of packing, Sam had stints inside his nose. Have you ever noticed how BIG the straws are from McDonalds? Well....the stints in Sam's nose were the size of those straws......just only shorter.
I'm gonna say that they were about three inches long! The guy gently removed the stints, and then he turned to us and ask if we would like to keep them????? I'm thinking...."WHAT?"
No way, do we want to keep those yucky things! Surely....surely, NO ONE keeps them!!
Do you know what happens when a person has to take pain meds for several days???? Oh yes.....the big (C) happens!
(C) as in constipation!!!! Who do you think had to go and buy the Prune Juice? Me! Of course, I know every kid that works at our local Supermarket. The one checking me out wanted to know if I was buying the Prune juice for me??
I said: What does it matter if I am?
She said: That is for Old people!! Old people who can't go to the bathroom.
I gave a big laugh and assured her that it was not for me.
Oh my.....I have enjoyed some comical moments this week!!
Thanks for the prayers.....keep them coming! Sam is beginning to feel better.
