I was weighted at the hospital yesterday, I wasn't looking forward to this because I felt I had completely overindulged this semester, taking larger lunches for college etc. but I only put on 4 pounds, I'm very pleased about that. It also means that when I loose weight after surgery I should go back to my original weight or just a little under. People find it really irritating when I talk about my weight cause I'm that person who can eat all I want and not put on weight. I've just killed that theory with my 4 pounds!!
I was trying to prepare my little cousin Robyn who is 7 years for what I will look like after surgery. Myself and her Mam were explaining that my face will look a little fatter because of swelling etc.. and would she help by getting me drinks and stuff. She looked very scared and asked if I'd look like the man off the telly? She was referring to the man known as the 'elephant man' that she had seen in a documentary lately. It's amazing how kids remember stuff and make connections. We gave her some reassurance and she seem relieved. Craig has also ordered me to get a chair in my room for him to sit on, he refuses to sit on my bed when I'm recovering in case he hurts my jaw. I'm sure he thinks I'll be made of glass post surgery! It's nice that he cares though.
