So I finally went back to work after having, for all intents and purposes, five weeks sick leave and I've got to say it was .... tiring. My work day starts anywhere between 6:00 and 6:30 am and ends between 5:00 and 5:30 pm - not counting the drive time both ways. Needless to say I sorely missed my afternoon naps!
Overall I'm glad to get back to work as it's a return to the "normal" and a milestone in the healing process. Now I just need to concentrate on letting the jaws heal enough so I can start working on the "widening process" and, before you know it, I'll be back to a normal diet.
Speaking of normal diets ... I finally managed to eat something other than soups, Boost, and smoothies last night. I cooked up some Lipton Creamy Chicken Pasta Sides and boy was it good! Of course, I had to use a baby spoon and sort of suck the pasta into my mouth but it was SOOOO worth it.
