A Stitch In Time
It appears that I had a major blood clot under my scar, the reason why my face was so swollen and I continue to be miserable to this day. It will take weeks before my cheek is back to normal.
I looked at my doctor with a somewhat red eye and said, what? It isn't normal to walk around with one side of your face black and blue, the size of a watermelon and your eye nearly shut after this kind of wound? No it is not, he assured me. I was the 1% that has this happen.
While it's nice to feel special and apart from the crowd, I just want to be like everyone else - cheeks the same size and eyes wide open.
