Day 5 - so tired

So I didn't do much today, I was so tired. As my mother in law said yesterday, this really knocked my body for a loop! Maybe I tried to do too much this morning. Mostly layed around reading and watching altogether too much tv. Was able to sit outside and get a lot of fresh air. Getting enough calories continues to be a problem. I've lost about 9 pounds so far and I'm not real thrilled about that. The swelling continues to spread. It moved down my face and has created some nice looking jowls. As far as feeling goes, I am feeling more than I expected. The splint prevents me from feeling my upper teeth at all and most of my upper mouth. I can feel the stitches now. I can feel my lips and most of my nose, nostrils are numb and gigantic. All around I just feel that my face is enormous and monstrous! I expect this feeling to last a while though.
Tomorrow is my first appt with the surgeon. Will keep u posted. Hugs to Rosa and good luck tmrw Tiff!
