A note for those of you who chipped in: while it is incredibly difficult for Tam to even think about looking in a mirror with the bandage off her nose at present, I've been doing her dressing changes. I've got to look.
She's healing well. Her surgeon's work strikes me as damned good. It's early days even now; this is a skin graft we're talkin' about and if it was your nose, a square inch or so -- call it around the diameter of a quarter -- would not be small. It'll take time to heal.
But here's the skinny: she still looks like Tam under that bandage. The Doc replaced his divot very neatly indeed.
