i wake up this morning – 5 days after my micro-laser peel and periorbital resurfacing – and as i’m washing off the antiseptic powder around my eyes, i realize that putting make-up on today would be insanity. the swelling has gone down considerably, though i’m still moon-faced, looking like i’m wearing a polynesian mask and the orbital area is still crusty. being in the raw takes on a whole new meaning!
i call CENSORED only to discover that he wanted me to keep the powder in place. i don’t think he has any idea of the fact that even the tiniest blemish shows up 1000 times magnified under the studio lights.
i call magda, the production manager. it really sucks because i know how disruptive this is to the production schedule, but i think that it will be crazy for me to shoot today. after what happened saturday night, i realize that i run the risk of getting even further infected. magda’s not happy, but knows that this was unforeseen.
i feel so foolish.
i turn on the tv and leona lewis is singing, “it’ll all get better with time”.
i hope so – and sooner than later, because time is not on my side.
Sorry to hear you are still swollen, it sounds quite nasty. Hope it gets better soon!
thanks po. can’t wait for this to be over!
