There was some pain yesterday (expected) but nothing I even needed the prescribed ibuprofen for—I explained I have issues with taking ibuprofen, but agreed aspirin wouldn't be a good idea to take instead, as it is a blood thinner. There's also, naturally, some swelling, so I'm happy to use the freezer packs of beads. I also have the tails of sutures on the roof of my mouth as a reminder; these are the dissolving type of sutures, naturally.
I actually was expecting to only be able to eat soup and yogurt, so I'm pleased to have had a scone for breakfast. Still, if I could go back in time for any reason, the most compelling one would be to teach 7-year-old me to floss every day.
