I've received considerable criticism that I'm not whining enough here. So, I whine.
Recovery going well. Nasal suction is a very bizarre sensation. There's really nothing weirder than having crap vacummed from your nose using suction. You feel like your head is being turned inside out. Once its over, your sinuses and nasal cavities feel remarkably good. It's a very interesting experience, and something I always wondered about as a child; why do I have to blow my nose, why can they just suck out all the snot?
