Things just keep getting better

Improvement has been slow recently, since I'm almost completely better. I really don't have to think about my jaw anymore, except I still can't chew very crunchy things and I can't eat terribly fast. I'm a little swollen, but less than I was even a week or two ago, and my jaw aperture is widening little by little.

So life is good, and it's improving even more. I'll be in a computer lab this week - considerably less active, but I'll be making real money.

So I was a summer camp counselor this week. I was quite a bit more active than I've been for the past six weeks.

I loved it.

I could go on for hours about how amazing it was. Because it was. Anyway, there's a bit of pain occasionally when I am particularly active, but I'm beginning to wonder if there's anything to be done about it. I'm not sure if I should just be active anyway, or if I should take it easy. I'm trying to maintain a balance and I hope I'm doing a good job of it.

And I'm not sure if I could have sat still for another week, anyway.

Back in Provo

So I decided to move to Provo. I moved a couple of days earlier than I had planned on a bit of a whim and am now here.

So I got in, ate dinner with my sister, saw Horton Hears a Who, went dancing, went grocery shopping, and now will sleep.

I believe it's downhill from here

Well, I went dancing on Saturday night. I held back a bit, and even sat out occasionally because my jaw was hurting a bit. But I got home, I was less swollen, and things have only gotten better. In fact, I haven't taken a painkiller since before then, even though I still have the bands in.

Translation: I can actually do moderately active things without injury to myself. I should be able to live life normally (which is still fairly inactive for me) from here on out. And in a week, when I have official clearance, I think I can live like I always have - climbing things at random, running around 'cause I feel like it, dancing in hallways, ... Oh, yeah. Life is good.
