Still snortin' salt water

Day 11. Been 2-3 days w/o significant change. Left side is almost normal, right side feels puffy and full of pressure, though breathing is clear. Right side is where the cyst was removed.

Popped a little nosebleed from the left side this morning. Haven't done that this whole long time. Immediately went and did a thorough salt water irrigation. Sooner or later, things have got to relax in there, and then I'm thinking it'll be pretty much over.

Some numbness may remain for a long time, though, particularly on my upper lip and left front tooth. Well, we'll see. Once I get my strength back, how my cheek or lip feels at any given moment will be far less noticeable or disagreeable. Hope that's soon. I got places to go and things to do.
