Nose Job

I might get in trouble for this post :o). Brian had a nose job this morning...

Okay, not really. He did have to get some work done on his nose, but out of necessity not vanity. He had nasal septal repair surgery to fix his deviated septum. AKA, he had problems breathing, he was constantly congested, and he snored - A LOT! So, he hopefully (cross our fingers) got that all taken care of today. The surgery was pretty intense, more so than I thought it would be. But it all went well, he will just be pretty miserable for the next few days. He is currently high on percocet and sleeping - trying to anyway.

You can't help but laugh a little at the silliness of his get-up. Thank goodness his nose is not always this big! He kind of reminds me of a cartoon character. Here is one more picture, just for the fun of it! Hehe...

Yeah, I was all prepared to make jokes about his surgery....until I saw the blood soaked bandage under his nose and decided it might not be an appropriate time to make jokes? Poor guy-hope he feels better soon! Tell him if he needs a nurse I can come and hold his leg and count to ten for him ;).

At least he didn't shoot his nose

Poor Brian! Hopefully though it will solve his breathing problems. Hope that he feels back to normal soon.

That looks sooo painful! Hopefully he is all better for the retreat and not snoring so he doesn't wake us all up!!

Does he know you put this up? Jason would kill me! He looks like he's in pain! Atleast the pain wasn't brought on by himself! I hope he gets feeling better soon.

I am just glad he didn't throw up in the car on the way home! Poor guy, I was all ready to give him a hard time coming out of the anesthesia until I saw him! Love you Bro!

Ouch! Hopefully Brian will get feeling better...and then he'll see those photos and get sick again. j/k

Zachary said...

Dang it...Mark took my joke! Oh well...I will fall back on this one: So does the hospital have a lean on him until you pay off the bills?

The shooting one was way better.

Get better Brian...we love you man!

I am so sorry Brian that we are enjoying the pictures so much. I am sure our children will feel the same way when they find out some of the blogs their mother's posted. Oh and I am sure if you anything like Brion you will milk, this for what it is worth!
