Tomorrow is the *BIG* day!
Aka my grand re-opening (as my dad in law put it). I say re-opening because this is the second glorious time I've been wired shut, although last time I had braces on, so the cutting free was fairly different.
Sadly I had a hard time sleeping last night, and again, woke up with a crazy tension headache. After some excedrin, water, and grabbing an ice pack, I headed back to bed. Where I slept for another 2.5 hours. Thank goodness! Because we don't have curtains in our house... I know I know, we're lame/weird or something.. our bedroom gets the morning sun. Which believe me is fantastic, unless you want to sleep in! So I normally can't sleep past 8 and that's pushing it... normally up by 7. But having the ice pack over my eyes helped block out all light... allowing me extra sleep. I also think tension headache is associated with the increase in talking I've been doing since returning to work (slightly). Yesterday I was feeling like poo after my early arrival in the morning- so I only went in later in the afternoon-just to do some email stuff.
Today I'll be in for a little bit, since I have a teleconference at 2. Hopefully there won't be much talking... cause it's difficult to understand me over the phone :/
Definitely looking forward to tomorrow, being able to yawn, brush the inside of my teeth, and being able to just generally open my mouth and put something in side, instead of having to strain liquids through my teeth, or put food into my little hole on the side.
Indeed, freedom won't come easy... I'll have to do physical therapy to get my muscles used to opening again, and chewing will be hard, and I can't eat hard stuff (aka raw vegetables)... but still so very exciting!
