Milking it……..done.

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.

    You have ever right to milk it. I think I would for at least a week. I love your new music selection.

    ♡ I’m glad you’re feeling better! I still can’t imagine what they did… It makes me cringe just thinking about it.

    I am so glad you are feeling better.. . but I agree, milk it as long as you can. I think with oral surgery you have a least two weeks of milking it.

    Phew! Hopefully you’re getting some breaks around the house…at the very least you should milk it for a few more days around the house…they don’t need to know you’re starting to feel better.

    Hey, that “almost like having a baby” comment was a little too close to home, ha, ha, ha. Five more days!!! Oh, boy.

    I am glad that you are starting to feel an improvement. I hope your healing continues speedily.

    Yum, protein shakes. You will have to tell me which kind you like best…

    Bjorn had this done a few years back and I know how painful it must be. He is a man however, so take that with a grain of salt. He did have a tough time eating and keeping good from touching the sore on the roof of the mouth. Hope things are getting better.

    You have every right to milk it. I plan on milking my wisdom teeth removal. 🙂 But I am very happy to hear that you are doing better. You are a trooper.

    I say milk it as long as you can…it is very rare that we get these opportunities, so I say drag it out baby! I hope you are able to eat better and that the pain is starting go…..I don’t even want to go there with a visual….it sounds too painful.

    You are the least complaining person I know. That isn’t really a normal sentence is it?

    Anyway, I am SUPER glad you are feeling better.
