Day 39

I felt around the back of my mouth and realized that I didn't feel any stitches.  I looked in the mirror with a flashlight and nothing was back there.  My husband said he could see the little holes were they were but no stitches.  Guess I swallowed them.  Don't know when but I didn't see them when they came out.  I don't remember when the last day I felt for them was.  I tried to look at the stitches on my upper jaw above my gums to see if they were gone too.  They were still there.  I was able to lift my upper lip all around to see all of my stitches really good.  I am going to take a video of my stitches and my splint and metal sculpture on my lower teeth before they all go away in.... 2 days!!!!!!!!!!!  Tuesday can't come soon enough.  :)  Othere than exploring my mouth I did absolutely nothing all day.  It was awesome.  The kids played outside with their friends and only came in the house to eat lunch.  Andy and I laid in bed and watched mindless tv all day.  Last weekend to do that because I can't wait to get out of the house and back to normal.   We are usually very busy and always doing something fun with the kids.  Soon.  :)

My mouth relaxed

Trying to close my mouth.  Only moving my lower lip. 
I think it will close more once this splint and all the extra metal is out.  Still have muscle weakness in the lower part of my face so it might be even better once I work those muscles longer.
