I Feel Pretty...

Oh soooo pretty...



This was taken Tuesday night. I don't have to wear the ice packs anymore thank goodness. They never stayed in place so I used a scarf to keep them where they needed to be. ;)

I'm doing better, swelling is slowly going down, but the bruising is now really showing up. The worst is puddling at the bottom of my neck. I can't talk very well yet and I have to eat soft foods. I had my first blended meal of cheese tortellini last night. It tasted great but took a lot of work to eat. I'm not in pain, just discomfort. My cheeks, tongue, any muscle around my face is tender when I move. You can't really see it in this pic but there is a white strip of tape that stretches ear to ear across my chin. It's pressing everything back and it's holding the chin muscle in place. It comes off next Tuesday. Yippee!

I'm not sleeping well yet, so I am going to keep this short as I feel the need to go have a nap. I just thought I'd let you all have a good laugh at my expense. Enjoy it while you can!

Glad to hear all went well, girl. You know, if you hadn't explained away the scarf as an ice pack sling, I would have dismissed it as a Daneaism. {HUGS}
