I'm not yet having fun. I think I use this journal sometimes just to bitch. It helps, gets it part way out of my system.

I still feel groggy but my mouth is not hurting as much as it was earlier. It seems to take a little while for me to get it working in the morning. I have to clean my teeth, rinse with salt water, take pain killers, clear stuff out of my throat that has accumulated in the night. I feel almost okay now. I am still worrying, though, worrying that something will pull out, that I'll have to get more stitches or something will get infected. I am sure this feeling will subside as the tissue starts to take hold and the stitches can be removed.

A side worry. Mary says my breath smells like gum surgery or something like that. Not a pleasant thing. So I am trying to rinse even more often and to avoid speaking too close to people.

All this sounds worse, really, than it is. I am just getting it out so I can let go a little. Of course I want to feel better and I know I will, in time.
