Day 28 or 4 Weeks

  Which ever you prefer, call it so. And it's here.  I still can't tell some days if this has been a fast 4 weeks, or a slow 28 days. Guessing a mix of both. Anyways, I'm just glad I'm not sick anymore, however I have an appointment tomorrow so missing class is inevitable. But its my birthday tomorrow, so I'm at the point where it doesn't even matter. I don't care. (it helps that I'm missing physics and I have a shitty teacher, hooray for me) UHG I don't like the questions I'm getting  from my family "where do you want to go for your birthday dinner?" they all say with smug grins. It really just upsets me. Clearly, the food is my hardest challenge, and as progressed as (I think) I am, I'm not going to be given any chewing clearing. Birthday Girl, or no Birthday Girl.

 I have convinced my mom to take me to Starbucks after the appointment ( I know he'll at least clear me for straws, right?) and I will  be getting a venti caramel frappuccino with extra caramel. Awful I know, but if I cant eat anything, I'l be drinking a days worth of calories in... I'll give myself 30 minutes to polish it off. My poor mother. Hahaha, oh well. My Aunt is coming into town! Hooray!!! Not for my birthday, but for a visit. My siblings were supposed to come down for the weekend (and my birthday) but they can't make it. Bummer, its the thought that counts right? Alright, My face hurts, still. But my lip/chin square of numbness, started tingling/itching hooray! Good news right? Ok well, I'm officially off pain killers :( for now...

  I hope everyone has a lovely labor day, and weekend. Sorry this was about my birthday and not about my jaw, I really don't know what else to talk about. I will have more tomorrow since I will know something, I will get all my questions answered this time. I normally forget 2 or 3 or 4. But I will report.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Life's a party, wear the hats

  1. Niki,
    Happy Birthday!! :D I hope that you can manage to eat something tasty. Believe me I know it is hard. Starbucks sounds yummy! And I am sure you will be allowed to use straws. Good luck getting all of your questions answered! Don't forget them! :)

    I hope your birthday is wonderful!


  2. Hi Niki,
    Hope you had a great Birthday and are feeling better all around. Did you get Starbucks? I can't think of anything better on my birthday than a ginormous Frap.

    Do you mind sharing who your surgeon is? I am thinking we are using the same guy. Parkland, Head of OMS dept at UT SW, Dr T? Sounds like we have the same guy. Anyway, let me know.

    I have enjoyed reading your blog and it was very encouraging. Your faith, spirit and positive attitude and inspiring. Thank you for sharing!

    Happy belated bday.
