Anyone There?...

Wow, time flies by on the old blog when summer arrives, doesn't it?

The Jaw was clearly not going to get better on its own, and the MRI confirmed what the doctor thought.

So, I had some big-time TMJ surgery done a week and a half ago.  I was expecting it to be something like a root canal.  Oh no.  But now that the swelling has gone down I can really tell a difference in how my mouth is working and so far it has not dislocated once.  I have to do some physical therapy everyday which is not fun, but I know it is helping.  And I will be on soft foods for four more weeks, but I am losing about a half a pound a day so I haven't been complaining too much :).

Other than recovering I haven't been doing too much.  I had hoped to start school back, but with the surgery all that was put on hold.  So my plan this week is to get all that organized to start back next week.  Nothing this summer has gone as I thought so I am holding onto all my plans for the next few weeks loosely.

Our computer crashed right before my surgery so I am using Mark's iPad and it is a bear for me to type on so I haven 't been leaving many comments , but I have been checking in with my blogging friends and hopefully we can figure out what's wrong with the big computer soon.


  1. Yikes, that surgery sounds very painful. I hope your recovery will be a speedy one!

  2. I've wondered why you've been so quiet :) praying for a quick recovery! Thanks so much for the birthday wishes, I've been blessed beyond measure by my sweet family.

  3. Did you get the Trim Healthy Mama book yet? There are lots of recipes for puddings, mousse, ice cream, and all kinds of soft stuff that is tasty and filling! Let me know if you need some inspiration.
