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!
