Cutting and pasting from the Book of Face (ironically)

[stef_tm] is the klutziest person in all of California. I broke my nose SLEEPING ON THE PLANE from BOS to SFO.

What happened: I passed out and slept with my face against my laptop on the tray table. No, I was not drunk.

in a later comment to my friend Jim I said "the sad part is I slept for a half hour. My head would have sheared in half had I slept all 6.5 hours!"


Came home on Wednesday/Thursday (midnight) nose hurt and was congested. All day Thursday my nose was running and I had terrible sinus pain. This morning did a series of neti rinses, heard a giant pop, and then a large section of my nose moved 5mm to the right. It hurts.


I have a (second) phone appointment with Kaiser at 5:50. I expect to be told to ice and use ibuprofen (which is what they say for everything, save massive bleeding.)

Wha? How?
That had to be some hellacious turbulence.

Actually they put me on antibiotics and claim it may be cellulitis (with a concern that being in the nose it could go to the brain.)

Granted, I'm no doctor, but I've never heard of cellulitus making your bones pop and move.

You must be very flexible to have gotten into that position during the flight.

Ouch! Sounds kind of like a deviated septum. Hope you get better!

GF claims my note is distinctly pointed to the left. The doctor diagnosed infection and I on sulphur drugs.
