And Back to Work

Added some feathers to the eagle. The paper looks really warped when scanned from having used water on the neocolours. Once its done, I will either flatten it under something heavy, or wet the back and flatten it with heavy books.Glad I just bought a few heavy books, not originally for flattening art tho. (I bought too many books, need another book shelf or I could build a fort with them all).

The jaw is still tingling, and my vision is still all wacky since my right eye is sort of numb. Seeing double a lot of the time and its worse when I wear my glasses, so I don't wear them, which feels weird because I always wear them.Everything is fuzzy if it is more then 2-3 inches away. Its loads of fun.

Been told that on average people lose 10-15 pounds from jaw surgery. While I am at the 10 pound mark, not that I'm complaining about losing 10 pounds., but I don't think you are supposed to lose that much in 8 days :/

I either am full of a lot of pain killers and don't feel pain, or the swelling has gone done enough that I do seem to be able to open my teeth a bit ore than I could yesterday, Not back yet to what I could do before, but its a start I guess.

Time for another root beer float I think :)

Sounds like a long haul, but I think you might be seeing some light at the end of the tunnel. I tried to look at your pics, but don't have a Yahoo account, so I'll just have to use my imagination. :-D
Goof start here. Your eagle's eye is great.

Its complex figuring out what to eat and get enough decent calories from but not losing too much weight. And the novelty of smooth or liquid wears thin quickly I'm sure. I hope the jaw continues to improve daily. Courage is your middle name.

The eagle is forming nicely despite wobbly paper and wobbly vision!

Take the rootbeer calories. I've steamed paper to flatten, in addition to book weights.

I vote build a fort, because forts are awesome :D There is never such thing as too many books!

This might sound gross, but what about baby food? Or mushed up veggies that you just have to swallow. I know I would go crazy too in your situation and try to think of anything.

its the texture of the food that is the problem with me, anything like baby food would def. be a no. i'm a picky eater :p
