behold. the braid that hides swelling. too bad it isn't suitable to wear out in public :P although i considered it.
|this is from day 12. i believe i went to the grocery store that day |
and really wanted it to be socially acceptable to wear my hair like this...
so hmm, my last set of stitches under my top lip fell out tonight! yay, so now when i smile you can't see random white strings hanging down.. haha
lately i have felt some sort of stinging either on my cheeks way back in my mouth, or the incisions back there... i don't know if they are rubbing against the braces.. or what is making it feel so uncomfortable :( also, my teeth have started to ache, as if i just got my braces on. no clue if they have always felt like this and my numbness going away is just making it more prevalent? or just if they are moving for some weird reason... no clue! but hey, this pain is better than the pain i had a month ago.
writing all of these posts has been the best thing ever during recovery.... i am allowed to complain as much as i want to without people getting too annoyed (hopefully). so thank you :) take care all.
