I had a very busy week last week. I accomplished a number of things that I needed to finish, and I had a semi-life changing event occur.
Since my posts tend to be long, I’ve decided to break this up into a few postings:
I’ll start by giving an update on “flat on my face“. If you read that post you’ll know that I had a very bad fall on March 30th. I landed right on my chin and ended up with stitches and a very sore jaw. I still can’t figure out how I ended up falling. One of life’s mysteries I guess.
I’m pleased to announce that I had my stitches removed last Friday and that the wound appears to be healing well. I’m glad to have gotten rid of those awful stitches, I think I was allergic to them. My husband also said it looked like I had pubic hairs sticking out of my chin. Gee, I wonder why I preferred to think of them as old lady whiskers?
The flesh on my chin is one hard lump of tissue though. It feels like it’s about an inch thick. I still worry that if someone is looking at me in profile that it might look like I’ve got a witches chin. It has gone down a bit since I originally injured myself, but I’m worried that I won’t have my own chin back my the end of the month when my niece is getting married. Do I sound vain?
My jaw is healing at a slower rate than my chin. Thankfully it doesn’t hurt as much as it did during the first week and I can actually chew food now without too much discomfort, but it does still hurt. I think it will take another week or two before my jaw feels normal again. I’m still worried that I might have some form of permanent injury to my jaw. However, I am reassured that the pain is lessening, so perhaps if I keep my fingers crossed the jaw problems will go away soon.
