Well, I couldn't believe it has been so long since I posted on here!!
I love my blog and although there isn't as much cake making posts on here, I do hope that you follow me on my journey with all my new adventures...
As some will know and if you take a look at my last post, I was due to have Bi-Lateral Jaw Joint Replacement Surgery. I have now had this and it looks like there will be a long road to recovery.
I had my surgery on 20th November 2014. Turns out I didn't behave myself too well during surgery. I bled heavily and they had trouble stopping it. This then results in more facial damage afterwards apparently. I have no movement what-so-ever on the left side of my face, forehead and only partial movement on the right. I cannot blink/shut my eyes. My face is still bruising and the eye sockets and forehead are really quite painful. Aside from the replacement itself! I also have problems with my tongue. The top part is very dry, cannot taste or feel!
Don't laugh....!! he he
After... what a looker!
My scars have healed fairly well, thankfully, although to be honest it's not something I have worried about.
After my check up with my Consultant back in January, not such good news.... He does think that by now something should have started to change facially. My tongue he was quite sure will repair and come back, just a matter of time. The forehead and left eye, well that's the sticking point. He started to talk about eye-lid weights, cutting me here & there if I want after a period of about 12 months. I'm like NOOOOO way matey. Let nature take it's course. It may take some time but I am pretty convinced it will heal.
The eye is a real pain up the botty! I am being referred to Moorefields eye hospital so that they can glue it shut for a few months, mainly to protect the cornea. It is so painful and taping it shut doesn't do the trick. I am due for my appt., in the next little while. Relief..! (This has taken ages to type...I need a magnifying glass to see the screen!) Going out is a real obstacle and for the first time in my life I felt vulnerable on my own, as I can only see 'fog'.
In between all of that I have managed a few makes. Not cupcakes...I have stopped doing that as I cannot see what I am doing lol
Not to bombard you with all my makes in one post, I will stagger them lol.
I did want to share this with you though...
I made a 'Mustache / beard' hoop and noticed after I had finished the bottom beard is very slightly 'wonky' so I thought why not have a
