I Can Breathe Clearly Now, the Tubes Are Gone

The gross tubes are finally out of my nose. The doctor took them out yesterday and while it was gross, it was very interesting. The tubes actually had wings on the side and were folded up in my nose. First he pulled them out and then used very long tweezer thingys (my medical termonology is outstounding, I should have been a doctor) up my nose into my sinus passage and pulled out the packing. Very uncomfortable, but afterwards..... I could breathe! I don't think I've drawn a full breath in two years. It was worth it (the only glitch is he left an annoying stitch in and I need to go get it taken out).
