My new best friend

I bought this heating "sock" at Walgreens today and it is awesome. Its called the Bed Buddy Moist Heat/Cold pack. It is filled with stuff that kinda feels like a bean bag. After two minutes in the microwave...pure bliss on my cheeks. I think it actually helped with the swelling. I plan to use it a couple of times a day to get my cheeks to go down.
Other than that, things are much better. I've cut down on my Lortab a bit. I still can't sleep through the night due to congestion but that should fade away eventually. I go see Dr.Q tmmw afternoon for my first post-op visit. I'll be excited to see my new x-rays.
On another note, I just need to reinterate how great this whole blogging thing is. Since Michelle V and I had our surgeries not too far apart, we have been bouncing ideas off each other the whole time. Everyone is so supportive and great. Holly is looking great and always has words of encouragement. I appreciate all the comments and ideas that everyone leaves. Thanks again!

That is an awesome heating pad!! The one I have is flat (I think it's supposed to be used for your neck & shoulders), but I can plug it in and use for as long as I want, which is nice.

I have an appt with my doctor tomorrow, too. (Well, it was really for today, but I totally forgot about it. I blame it on the drugs!)

I totally agree with you about this whole blogging thing. In having conversations with other people, I've found myself saying "my friend Rachel told me about...". It's really cool to be able to share ideas and commiserate about our recoveries!!

I have been reading your blog for about two weeks. I am having upper jaw surgery on July 21. It has been very comforting to read about your experiences. I feel less stressed about my upcoming surgery. Thank you.
