Walking in Freedom

Miscellaneous musings along the way

Applesauce and Cottage Cheese July 22, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — songofjoy88 @ 3:10 pm

I had my first follow up visit yesterday.  Everything is going well.  I now wear rubber bands that aren’t as restricting and can take them out when I eat.  So, now I can eat mushy foods (like applesauce and cottage cheese).  Basically I can eat anything a baby without teeth can eat- sounds bad, but after just liquids, this will be a nice change.  But, after 4 weeks of it, I’m sure I’ll be ready to start eating other stuff.

Now that I have these new rubber bands in, I can move my jaw a little bit more now which makes talking a little easier (definitely not back to normal… and it won’t be until I get my “splint,” aka plastic thingy, off my top teeth in a month).  The swelling is still going down- slowly.  I pretty much haven’t been able to smile because of it, which might be worse than the not talking! 🙂  I’m so thankful the school where I’ll be teaching starts later than most and it looks like I’ll be totally recovered when it’s time to start.

Not really sure what else to comment on… I haven’t been doing a whole lot since I’ve been recovering.  Perhaps a non-recovery related post is in order. 🙂
