Three Weeks Post-Op

I'm doing double duty today—a video AND updated photos—because I'm 3 weeks and 1 day post-op and owe you, my readers, both.

Apparently I just can't help but talk for 10 minutes each time...
Ain't nobody got time for that. So here's a quick recap:

-drink through a straw
-eat with a spoon
-feel a tiny spot on my left cheek (yay...progress...kind of!)
-go every other night without Lorazapam
-get through most of the day without pain killers
-notice a difference in my swelling...or I'm just getting used to my puffy face
-speak a lot clearer; good riddance speech impediments
-eat less liquified foods

-my splint out
-the surgical hooks off
-an arch-wire back on
-new rubber bands, in front & back and super tight—ouch
