My nose finally reached the point yesterday where it didn't need to be bathed in salt water constantly. Wow. I can breathe. I can sleep. 'Swonderful.
I also had a fair amount of pinching, burning, and other unpleasant sensations on my upper lip and cheek, which indicates (I hope) that the nerve that got so battered in the course of chiseling my nose straight is starting to wake up. Here's to that coming right at last.
Now, if my energy level will rise, too, I can say I'm on the verge of full recovery.
