After today’s shower, I finally pulled out my mirror and looked at it.
And you know what? It looks AWESOME. Seriously. It looks almost as good as brand-new and I didn’t notice any swelling or redness. Phew!
Also, I’ve been typing up the birth story in bits & pieces as I can, adding in things as I remember them and clarifying others. It’s coming, eventually, but I’m not rushing it.
