17 Days Later

So, its been 17 days since I had my jaw joint replaced. Healing good and I can eat bread now. Well, I can eat it very very slowly and only if I squish it :p but its a start. The nerves on my face are going haywire trying to repair themselves. So while it is frikken painful its a good sign, still look like half my face is frozen tho. My vision is still fuzzy and still need drops, but there are signs that is improving too, as long as I don't read too much and strain my eyes. Which sucks when you are as much of a reader as I am. The area where the stitches are is looking good, hard to say how much of a scar it will be now. I'm thinking more than the last time due to how the cuts where sewn shut but time will tell with that. Anyway pic update, puppies before the photo as usual :p

The muscle on my neck is still really swollen, feels like a huge lump when you touch it. I need to dye my hair :p

Hi Jennifer,
Glad the healing is progressing, but so sorry that it hurts so much. It looks like there will be little left for anyone to notice.
The puppies were great!
Sincerely,
Gary, and Michele, too.

The eye part is probably the hardest to take... Let's hope all the rest heals quickly now.
