Slow. My ear surgery recovery is damn slow.
But in general, I feel better than I thought I would. Of course, I have massive doses of vicodin coursing through my body right now, so I’m thinking anything would feel ok right now.
Thanks so much for your messages, tweets and emails of encouragement. I am super hopeful this will work.
For those who have asked, it was a pretty intensive surgery, where, yes, he removed my ear to get to my eardrum from behind. I have a huge scar running the whole length of my ear, which is healing really well.
That part I am actually kind of sad about. If you are gonna have a big wicked scar, the back of your ear is a pretty cool place to have one, right? Battle wounds from the last year, right? Big old Star Trek Ferengi ears to prove I am bad-ass, RIGHT?
But no. Apparently my doctor is so top-notch I probably will have NO scar at all.
Let’s just hope “no scar” equals “lots and lots of hearing.”
