Day 13 - Elastics-a-flyin'

Wow, what a great day. So, I went back to work today and almost everyone commented about my changed face. Mostly positive comments too! I had to stumble and mumble through a couple of conversations but eventually got the message across. I think all the extra talking and smiling did me really good. My mouth feels relaxed and I can move my lips around a lot more freely. Dare I say it, but I'm kind of getting used to the splint too.

I also broke an elastic yawning today. I had a spare elastic so I replaced it but I visit my surgeon tomorrow to get them taken off anyway. I probably could have just removed the other one but it's only one more day so I might as well go the distance. Mashed foods here I come!

  1. Wow, you are looking really great! Glad to hear things are getting better for you. Today was my best day yet - no pain relievers at all today because I had no pain. Until I went to the ortho that is. He gave me the rubberband configuration from hell! UGHHHH...its not pretty!

    Good for you for getting back to work so soon! The joys of youth I'm sure! :)
