After Addy de-fogged from her last surgery, she wanted to see what her face looked like. She knows that each laser treatment brings bruising – sometimes darker, sometimes lighter. I didn’t have a mirror with me in the hospital room, so I grabbed my phone and flipped the camera on so it could act as a mirror. She stared at herself for a minute, then observed the bruising with a matter-of-fact, “Well, that’s purple.”
And with that, she moved on to silly selfies. I love her comfort level here, so I thought I’d share a few. She’s post-op, she’s bruised, she’s aware of it, and she’s over it. Her face will definitely garner some double takes when we leave, and that’s okay.
