Adorable Old Man or Franken-Bob

Bob is calling himself Franken-Bob and refuses to go out

I said it is not noticeable, and took side and front on Thursday which was the 5th day after surgery.. you can see the swelling from the front view and the down dip to his mouth, that is caused by tongue being numb and causing problems chewing.. the beard is a tad mismatched but not noticeable.

 We hope that will be gone soon....not bad for 80 I think.


we were lying in bed discussing the last 2 weeks, and ..

Bob said "I'm and adorable old man"
What!!!? she said
He repeated "I'm a durable old man"
PHEW! I thought you said Adorable..
Well! that to, he says

If he thinks he looks bad, he should have seen Phil after his face surgery! Now let's see...the beard helps distract from the swelling. It also makes the mouth droop less noticeable. I didn't even notice the swelling till I read about it. From the front, you can hardly see it.

Maybe he's adorably durable :) From the front view it's not very noticeable at all.

Karen said...

He looks like he is healing quickly.

I noticed the swelling but not the droop or beard.That's good news because the swelling will go away. Either way; adorable from the inside out.

Sandi said...

Adorable. ;-)

It will heal and then you won't be able to keep him inside!

Hello, time will heal and he will be back to normal. I do not see any wrong with the beard. He is adorable and durable. I hate when the dentist numbs my mouth, it feels icky. Tell Bob he better behave himself, at least for a few more days. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and the new week ahead!

Happy 4th of July!

Mildred said...

I see an improvement each time you show the photos....praying the healing continues and that each day finds him better. You both are durable!

Durable/adorable that cracked me up!! God bless you both you are both adorable and durable and for sure strong of mind, soul and body
Hugs Cecilia we are so thankful this is behind you

Tell Bob he is as handsome as ever! I'm so glad he still has his beard!
Adorable and DURABLE are equally important and I'm thrilled he still has both qualities!
That scar will fade to nothing in no time! I had my throat cut when I had thyroid cancer and it looked like a railroad track. It faded and no one notices it and haven't for years!
I agree with Ginny! I remember what all Phil went through and it was truly a scary time! Now look at how nice Phil looks!
Hope you will take pics of him so we can see his progress! We want to keep these guys for as long as we possibly can!
I love happy endings to these medical scares!

Well at first it must look scary to him - but believe it or not it will turn into a thin line - my mother had it. It takes time. Sandie

He is healing nicely. And he does have a bit of adorable twinkling in those eyes.

Like others have written, I had to go and look carefully at the picture. Otherwise, it wouldn't have been noticeable in the least!

Love your fella's sense of humor! Adorable, indeed!

Hi Sandra, tell Bob he's durable and adorable! The swelling and dip is hardly noticeable (I also only saw it when you wrote about it) Praise God that he's come through so well. Take care. Blessings Jo

Rose said...

Lol...I have been wondering if he was still having trouble with being numb. I am praying for you/him every day.

Pam Jackson said...

HAHA....you two are a hoot! I love it. He don't need to worry about going out....that is just life but he does need to be sure and cover up in suntan lotion.

Ruth Hiebert said...

He is looking good for what he's been through.

KB Bear said...

He looks great given everything he's gone through recently. I'd say that he's right - he is a durable (and adorable) man!

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Glad to read that you both have kept your sense of humor in this cute exchange, Sandra.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

I think he looks great for what he has been through! Tell him to behave himself so that he can heal. :)

Patti said...

I agree with Bob--both durable and adorable! So thankful...

He is both adorable and durable.
It does take time to heal. I think he looks great.
Handsome man.

Just Mags said...

Wow, that looks like it would be really sore. Looking at Bob's face not knowing I would never had imagined he had gone through all that he has of late. He looks very good and I hope he is feeling better and better each day. Hugs

Inger said...

Poor Bob, that's some scar! I hope he is feeling more comfortable with each passing day. And, not bad for 80!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Not bad at all....
So glad he is doing so well.
