Hello guys :)

so today was probrably one of the best days of my life

today i had my slints and cast taken off my nose,

It's been 8 days since i had my surgery and while it wasn't really sore at any stage the cast was starting to get really uncomfortable.

I met my surgeon in his private clinic this morning and oh my god was i nervous, even though i wasn't having the procedure for cosmetic reasons i was so afraid it would look awful.

I was worried for nothing, when he had everything taken off the first thing he asked me to do was to breathe through my nose, and SHOCK HORROR, i could for the first time ever in my memory. I'm still getting used to how strange it feels :)

The next think he asked me to do was go look in the mirror, and as soon as i did i broke down in tears, even though i didn't feel that the appearance of my old nose bothered me when i saw it straight i was really emotional. No longer to i have to be self concious of my nose :)

It did bring an element of sadness to the day however because i do wish my mum could be here to see it as she was the one who was with me to start this journey 7 years ago but after a sneaky little cry with my cousin who was with me for support we were back to admiring the job

I cannot speak highly enough of my surgeon who has done everything he can to help me this last week.

Thanks for all the supportive comments and tweets  :)



P.S i'm throwing in a pic of how i look right now, makeup free so excuse that but no cast so yay :D
