I am sipping my coffee now without having to spoon it in. My lips are slightly less swollen. In my instructions, I am not to let crusts form. The chin looks OK but my lip is one huge crust. I guess I have to soak it. I have 2 more days on the antibiotic that burns a hole in my stomach though I haven't yet seen the side effects of that I was warned about. How I wish I didn't fall!
I am having a hard time with this. My face, beyond all the wounds, just looks dirty as the skin is purple. Maybe I will tie a scarf around my face?
I did walk where I would be unlikely to see anyone but the road was quite slippery from all the rain from the day before. Stupid snow is back now.
Two teeth are broken. One I had broke in a previous fall and I think that one can be easily repaired again. The other, I don't think so. I see the dentist in a few hours. Brushing my teeth is a real challenge as I can not fully open my mouth.
While I was gone, I lost 3 readers. I guess I am getting more and more boring.
