Operation (Literally) Deviated Septum - Success Part 2


Splenda Daddy has had a deviated septum for I think his whole life. Dude can't even BREATHE out of his nose. And the snoring? Don't.even.start.me. I've been bugging him for awhile to make an appointment and go get it looked at. Finally after seeing how Corbin's was a success, he bellied up to the bar and went in.
He knew it was going to be painful, and that it was NOT going to be a walk in the park. I think he was unprepared for his initial pain.By the time I go up to the surgical center, after getting Tuffy out the door for prom, he was in recovery. I was brought up to date. His blood pressure was higher than they liked and he had a rippin headache. They gave him an extra Percocet and some other meds to lower the BP. An icepack helped alleviate some of the pain in his head.
After watching him for a little longer, and making sure he was okay, they let me load him in the car and take him home.
I set him up on the recliner in front of the big screen, put a humidifier directed at him and a plate of Chinese food in his lap. I think he was feeling much better by then!

Once the splints come out next Tuesday, the rest test will begin. Keep your fingers crossed that this did the trick. That he'll actually be able to breathe, sleep and smell! I guess no more farting around him. Now, he'll actually be able to know!

Hope it works! I wish Luvpilot could have surgery for his snoring. Instead I have to stock up on earplugs and enjoy it when he's out of town.

Seriously that look so painful, I could never do. If anyone touches my nose- I freak out. I hope this works for Dave.

Oh I really hope that it works! I am so lucky that my husband doesn't snore. If he had I don't know that I would survive. I am a very, very light sleeper.

Those are sad pictures. I hope this works for him. Looks like he is a "tuffy" just like his son.

Poor, poor SD! That just does not look like much fun. Hope he's feeling better.

I hope this does the trick! What a brave man (mostly brave for letting you put pictures of him in that state on the internet!)
