Speaking of my mom, she is been amazing throughout this whole process! She obviously stayed with me in the hospital and now that I'm home she is waiting on me hand and foot. She's feeding me, wiping my drool, basically I'm just like a huge baby that needs to be taken care of. The first night back home I couldn't sleep because of a really bizarre dream and she came into my room and stayed with me until I was ok. This whole recovery makes me feel like a little kid again! I definitely couldn't get through this without the help of my mom! My dad and my sister have also been great and even my extended family and neighbors have been so sweet sending me sooo many flowers! I also have to give a shout out to fellow jaw surgery patient Heather! I got those breathe right strips! Talk about a live saver! My new obsession is putting q-tips a little up my nose and then putting a breath right strip on. It feels so much better being able to actually breath! I also finally got a jaw bra that has ice packs that can go in them. I didn't get one initially because I knew the hospital provided ice packs, but did anyone find those as uncomfortable and useless as I did? They were so heavy on my head I thought my head would explode any minute.
Here's an update on photos. I don't really see any difference, but my mom says she thinks the swelling looks much better.
