Update On My Recovery After Surgery

First off let me start by saying, thank you so very much for putting up with me during the A-Z Challenge.  I was glad to figure out my theme early on...fitness, and it seems to have worked out pretty good. Again, thanks from the bottom of my heart.

And now back to your regularly scheduled programming... 

I had surgery Friday and ended up having to go under twice in the span of 20 minutes.  Let's just say things didn't go quite as smoothly as I'd hoped.  The Denturist actually messed up my partial, in that he forgot about one tooth that was being pulled.  The partial fit pretty good so it all worked out.  He saw me Saturday and spent the next hour adding material and making it to fit my mouth much better and since he is such a great guy it really was no biggie.  I not the kind of person to let things like that get me mad, life is too short to sweat the small stuff.

I will go back to see my Denturist on the 1st to make adjustments and possibly have another impression made.  I am doing well as far as healing goes, my left lower jaw is very swollen and I look as if I have a golf ball in my cheek...it's all good though.  I was able to eat noodles and shrimp last night for the first time since Friday...I had been surviving on pudding, yogurt, mashed potatoes and soup.  A person can only eat so much mush...know what I mean!  

Unfortunately I cannot exercise yet...believe me when I say, I'd rather be running then recovering from surgery...lol! I had visions of having surgery and running the very next day...that did not happen, in fact the only thing that comes close to exercise for me is getting out of bed to rinse my mouth and get another ice pack for my jaw...ha ha ha!  Oh well, such is life.

I want to hear all about what YOU have been doing so drop by and tell me all about it!  Blessings and may sunshine find you today.  

Godspeed...this comes from the Middle English expression "God spede (you)", a wish for success and fortune for one setting out on an enterprise, voyage, adventure, or travels. It may also mean good luck.

  1. Still doesn't sound fun. Yeah, mushy food is only good for so long. Hope your mouth continues to heal.

  2. I agree with the mushy food part. That's hard after awhile. I had that issue with my wisdom teeth being removed. A whole week of mush when all you want is something crunchy. You always crave what you can't have =). Hope it heals quickly and you can get out running soon =).
