The time has come to stop milking the oral surgery recovery. I’ve been feeling guilty about the wonderfully nice comments and well wishes. Admittedly, the first 2 days were very rough, but I’m feeling much better now. I still *look* like a train wreck, but I’m fully functional and not in *pain*. Of course it’s uncomfortable at times, but not enough that I need to take pain medication. Eating is still an issue, but I am getting adequate nutrition. I’ve been living on protein shakes and slowly adding foods that don’t need a lot of chewing back into my diet. Eating doesn’t hurt anyore, it’s just hard to keep the food away from the areas that I need to. So, thank you all so much. I really loved the comments and your concern. It’s almost like having a baby. All the attention that is. Yet I didn’t have to worry about the phone ringing off the hook or people stopping by. It’s been lovely. Thank you.
