Here is a group shot of some of dearest friends from the last week that I will no longer need. To my liquid Vicodin, you gave me comfort all through the day as well as that "fuzzy" feeling that can't be replaced. However, I no longer need you and you have now been replaced by children's Motrin (which tastes a heck of a lot better). To my baby nose sucker, you freed my mouth from all the drool that was just too much for me to swallow. Now that I'm able to chug water like its going out of style, I have no use for you. To my catheter/syringe apparatus, you've been with me since the beginning. You made it possible to squirt food, medicine, water, etc to that little nook all the way back in my mouth without making a complete mess on my face. Its sad to say, but I can now drink out of a glass and I only use the syringe for really thick "food." Oh, I can't forget my prescription mouthwash. You made my mouth feel as clean as possible when I wasn't able to brush more than my front teeth for almost a week. How I will miss you. You have all made my recovery much better but it is time to move on. Now if I could only get rid of that nasty pink antibiotic!
