So the surgery went well, and I'm recovering rapidly, I hope to be practicing and doing whatever I do full time by the end of the week. Right now I'm on pain meds which are making me fairly silly and dizzy, but that's ok. Everything is ok. I sit on the couch and do nothing. It's great! There's no swelling or bruising so my job is to not break the stitches on my bottom jaw. So I'm just watching videos of when I lived in Missouri and England. Featured is our first Scottish Terrier, Chaucer McBark'n'Bite Clark, and my dad with surprising guest appearance of dad's hair! Dad has decided to go with the shaved look for a while now. :)
In the videos there were two very telling comments that my dad made, one was the observation that (at age 4) that I was not a morning person, and second (even though a little off) that I might one day do "The Nutcracker." And he had his finger on it, even though he meant dancing instead of playing the music. :) It's so great to see how all those little things make so much more sense now, years later.
