Ear lift =)

Well the 'ear surgery' went well today. It only took about 45 minutes and what a nice Dr. We visited the whole time. The most painful part (so far) was the shots to numb my earlobes. I get the stitches out in a week and can have them re-pierced in three weeks (instead of the 2 months that the nurse quoted over the phone when I set up the appointment). I now have little black stitches for earrings. Not to gross anyone out, but it was wierd hearing the thread being pulled through... I would have loved to had a mirror so I could watch, but didn't want him to think I wanted to make sure he was doing it right or was going to complain. I love medical stuff and I couldn't feel it anyway, so wouldn't have cared that it was happening to me. I even watched Michael getting a spinal tap almost 28 years ago. It feels like I have 'paper cuts' on both earlobes. It is not really painful...more just uncomfortable....tonight anyway. I'm sure it will be a bit more sore tomorrow. At any rate, I am ready to hit the hay for tonight...... =)

Glad to hear you got through it all OK. Sounds like maybe you should have gone into nursing!:-)

I'm starting to wonder if we all'd be better off just getting tatoos on our earlobes??? I struggle with mine and allergic reaction to certain metals (right now the only kind I can wear comfortable is gold, and I don't prefer the pricetag on that!!)

I think ear tatoos might be a new trend to start up...whatcha think?? ;)
