Day Three


Less swelling and general achiness, but more discrete discomfort, mostly at the stitches, I think. Doing a fairly good job of not poking at said stitches (which I think actually run between my teeth). Taking 1/2 Lorcet every three hours rather than one every six hours -- same total dose, but since the half-life seems to be about five hours, I'm mostly staying ahead of the pain. I probably could cope at work as long as people were willing to be compassionate about my slightly mushy speech.

Have decided to stick with liquids rather than soft foods, because I really do not like the sensation of particles getting caught in the stitches.
