Musical Interlude...

"Take it! Take another little chunk of my nose now, baby..."

Just had another slice taken, and the waiting resumes. I am given to understand that the missing piece now extends out onto the bridge of my nose.

As long as it doesn't lead to "a total eclipse of the schnozz" . . .

Hang tough, Tam. We've got your back.

Themadlemming said...

Positive thoughts and positive energy.

Reno Sepulveda said...

Stay strong Tam! and while you're healing up keep this in mind all the beautiful people in Hollywood are running around in shemaghs. You'll be a sensation in Broadripple.

Jim said...

As Travis remarks, "Hospitals are places where they hurt you."

Happy landing, Tam -- and I admire your courage.

Best,
Jim

Same song I was singing before my colectomy. That turned out ok, and this will too. :)

Bob said...

Look on the bright side: Once the surgery is done and the bandage is on your nose, you can put a fedora on your head, cross your eyes and pretend to be Jake Gittes from Chinatown.

David said...

The waiting between slices is the worst. But when they speak those words "OK, its clear, lets get you stitched up and out of here" are sweet music.

I hope those are the next words you hear.

Quick update, we had lunch. Back at the doc. Tam will tell the rest in due course but at least they're not starving her.

Jennifer said...

You know, it's really hard to run my ten-key with my fingers crossed like this.
We all pulling for you. Thank you for the update.

We are beings of light, not this crude matter!

You are more gleaming than most of us, certainly than I am...

Bob: I think this one goes beyond Chinatown.

My Tycho Brahe comment earlier is starting to look prophetic.

Hang tough. You're bigger than this is.

Scott J said...

Peter, well done!

Hang in there, Tam. You'll get through this.

It's not like you live in a Marxist dictatorship.....well didn't used to anyway.

Fuzzy Curmudgeon said...

Can't do better than to echo all the above. Hang in there.

Discobobby said...

Good luck - do you get to keep a sample? I know a guy who can stuff and mount it for you. Real conversation starter over the mantelpiece.

Seriously, prayers out.

Jeffro said...

Hang in there - thinking of ya!

I had a chunk taken from my cheek. Now I have a face with character, rather than the less than stellar alternative.

Always in our prayers.

She's back in the OR at present. Been a couple hours.

Everybody, lets all sing!

100 layers of skin on the nose,
100 layers of skin
You take one off and pass it around.
99 layers of skin on the nose

Sorry, just had to go there. You'd do the same for me.

BGMiller said...

Do they have her or does she have them?

Did doc hit a tender spot and she's currently strangling him with an IV line while fending off a scrub nurse with a pair of Metzenbaum scissors?

Good vibes sent into the aether. Keep us posted!

"Deep within my nose lies a me-low-dee"

Hum-hum-da-dum.

Hoping for the best. You know, if they take skin grafts off the center of your back, between your shoulder blades, you won't have to look at the "donor" landscape!

Take heart, and blessed be.

Comrade Misfit said...

All the god thoughts I can muster are heading your way.

(And to the Plumbing Spam Dude, highly inappropriate place for this crap! May you die soon, painfully and often.)

Best wishes for everything to go ok.

Brigid said...

Thanks for the phone call. Barkley and I are hoping they're done soon.

Barkley offers a snoot, literally, when you're more rested.

Critter said...

If you are in need of new nose pieces I have more than enough and will gladly donate some to your recovery. (My nose, not, yanno, a collection or anything)

roland said...

I'm hoping it doesn't hurt too much. Physically or otherwise.
Please be ok.

Tam,

Hope that was the last cut and it all goes well.

((huggs))
