Nothing Good to Report

I hate to say it, but after a surgery life is pretty uneventful. I haven't felt like doing anything.

The left side of my face still has a nagging ache that turns to a slow throb by the end of the day. I'm still taking pain pills at night to help relax me enough to fall asleep. (I hope this doesn't turn into an addiction.)

I called my oral surgeon's office this morning to ask about what I needed to do to relieve my left cheek from its constant ache. Nurse Amanda said it was normal to still be swollen and to have minor pain.

I wanted to say, "Yo, Amanda. On a pain scale of 1 to 10, my left cheek is between 6-8 all day. Lose the stocked response, and tell me something that will help me." But I didn't.

So with nothing major to report this morning, I will leave you with this. A photo of the roommate.

A few weeks ago in her preparation for 5K training, she demonstrated stretches that could be beneficial to us after a run.

The Flamingo: A perfect combination of balance and stretch. It looks to be perfect stretch for the calves, hamstrings and quads. (I'm not a doctor, but I did major in science for 4 semesters.)

Pretty sure her facial expression makes this photo blog worthy. (I think she was saying something like REAAALLLLLYYYYYYYY stretch it out, Robin.)
