Day 25/Pictures


It still hurts to smile...




I finally took pictures today. I'm still swollen, but I doubt most people would notice it much. And my eyes still look lopsided. Ah well.
It's so great to have that splint out. I saved it and took a picture of it. It felt so much bigger when it was in my mouth. It's so easy to talk now. Both my kids noticed right away when I started talking to them that something was different. Of course, I got a sore throat and my voice is almost gone. That's a bummer, but at least the splint is gone.
I had a nice day today. I had some coffee and oatmeal in the morning, some Indian food for lunch (very easy to eat if you just take the sauce from the food and mix it with the rice, yum), followed by PinkBerry and then of course my usual rice and beans and salsa for dinner. I'm definitely not going to keep the weight that I had lost off for long. That's okay. No blender food for me. I would rather not eat at all.

Here's my splint: :)

My eyes look lopsided, too! But I think they were like that before the surgery? Or maybe is from numbness/swelling that has yet to go down.

I can't believe the split is so small. It feels a whole lot bigger than that!

Your profile looks so great. I'm so excited for you!

Looking good. I am so glad you are eating now and your splint is out. Now that I am eating more, I am not going to keep my lost weight off either. Oh well. It will be okay. : )

Hi Aimee, you're looking fantastic! i'm sure the worst is over now they've taken the splint out, and its great you are eating soft foods again. i am feeling so much better now i'm eating soft foods too, did have some dizziness before but its largely stopped now. Keep trying to smile, you'll get there soon. oh and my eyes look lopsided too! so glad its not just me!! hopefully it'll get back to normal when the swelling has gone down...

My eyes don't look lopsided in person, that is what is weird! My eyebrows don't even look the same in person. lol I don't know. The camera changes my face or something.

Thank you for the compliments. :) Now I need to get my hair done! I've let it go for so long now.
