Camie the Hammie no more!

Ha! After a morning and afternoon of painful tennis ball face, otherwise known as Camie the Hammie, I am free! Yes, that bastard of an obstruction has left my face via my mouth. I spent hours with that hot water bottle on my face, sucking (painfully) those lemon drops. The pressure was so intense I was unable to eat, and could barely lift my head from the pillow. Just as I was reaching freak-out stage (and after I left an alarming comment at Dilling's begging her for any tips that could help me out after I learned she had once had this)it came out. I was talking to my hubby on the phone, telling him I thought my face would explode and that I now had developed a sore in my mouth, when it exited the sore. I dropped the phone as I spat a huge amount of salty tasting nasty liquid into my hand (honestly, I was expecting blood). Included in the nasty mess was the foul object, about the size of a trimmed fingernail all hard and gritty. I continued to spit liquid from my mouth for about 5 more minutes since it was just pouring out of the hole. Hubby, the concerned guy that he is, stayed on the phone the entire time waiting for me to return. Happily, I grabbed the phone and announced to him I was free! I immediately packed up my kid, and went to the all you can eat Chinese Buffet where I ate 3 whole plates of food. I was so hungry! The hole is still draining, not as much, and my face is returning to normal size. It is still sore to the touch, so I'm not touching it. I still have to go to the specialist to make sure I got it all out, and I get to take the chunk so they can see it. I guess this sort of thing doesn't happen very often so they want to "study" it.

Thanks for listening, and I apologize for the gore. I have never had anything like this happen to me before, so I decided to share it all with you. Lucky you! Hmmm, I think it is time to eat some more. See you all later. Have a good weekend.
