Does Your Face Hurt? 'Cuz It's Killing Me."Tom," you ask, "How long are you in make-up each morning for your role as the Grinch in the live-action sequel?" Oh, reader. Words hurt. Yes, I realize a small plane could land in the space between my upper lip and nose. What can I do? The swelling continues to subside daily.
Also, many people keep writing to tell me that it looks like I must be in a lot of pain. Well, I'm not. (Thanks, nerve damage!) Perhaps you're in pain when you look at me. But I assure you, I am in no pain. But I am a little hungry.
Real FoodI've found that jaw surgery recipe websites generally stink. Many of them say, "Just about anything can be blended!" Ok. Care to elaborate on that? Well, it's taken me some time to come up with what to blend into food: cream, milk, water, marinara sauce, sour cream, juice, etc. I had great meals today...
For dinner, (clockwise from top) I had grilled scallops with garlic (blended with olive oil and the juice from the pan), spinach, broccoli-zucchini medley (baby food), and some Spanish rice (with extra water). Really tasty. The scallops were blended into very tiny pieces.
I even had pumpkin pie dessert. My favorite – vanilla ice cream, cinnamon, vanilla, Nilla wafers, and pumpkin pie filling. Yum. I'd say I got some good calories in today.
I didn't mention breakfast, but I had two kinds of yogurt stirred together (one flavored mixed in with thick, plain whole fat). I also made a smoothie with a Vitamuffin, a banana, and milk.
