I was able to eat more today than yesterday - for some reason, my stomach didn't really want anything at all yesterday. Psychologically, blended food just isn't that wonderful to contemplate, but I think it was something else. The same food was much better today.
So I was able to eat more for lunch today. And that's a good thing. I walked around a bit, and even did some stuff around the house. I'm starting to be less of a burden (although there's still a lot of distance to cover before I'm back to being a contributing member of the household), what with a few dishes done and setting up a new email address for my mom. I still haven't been able to shave my upper lip or chin yet, which makes me look rather ... edgy.
Anyway, I'm feeling much better and the swelling has decreased again. At this point, I keep hoping that I'll wake up to find that it's completely gone. No such luck yet, but then they said that it will resolve in 10-14 days. And I'm on day 6. So that would be surprising.
I feel like I'm reiterating a lot. I may write less frequently. Because unless I come up with something else to write about, I'll just be chronicling the types of blended food items I was able to consume and the size of my puffy cheeks. But when there's news, I'll write.
