Oh, that would be hard, SP. Do you have a list of foods in mind for when you are able to eat normally again? What are you dreaming of?

Sushi is my favorite. The seaweed might be difficult to chew but the rice and fish should go down easily.

Let's see... Indian, Thai, Chinese.

Maybe a Chipotle burrito, or a huge salad from Jason's Deli.

Really good pork BBQ, collard greens, mac & cheese, and coleslaw. We have a famous place that ranks as #1 around here. It's great.

There's also a little diner that's been around for years. Great meat & three type place with excellent pies.

Head down to the sushi house. Sit at the counter. Slap $30-40 on the bar and say: "Chef's choice sashimi." No rice, no seaweed. Glorious, glorious fish.

I do like sashimi, Trach. Nigiri is probably the way to go though because I love rice and I'm able to swallow it down easily.

I'm having tortilla soup again, with tons of grated cheddar cheese. It's been my favorite, along with chili.

I ate all the coffee and vanilla ice-cream. There's peach and salted caramel left.

I'm making my nightly eggs & cheese snack.

I scramble the eggs and grate cheddar cheese over it, and use a fork to chop it into tiny pieces so I can swallow it.

I've been Googling jaw surgery recovery related things and reading stuff that's got me worried again. I hate it. I Googled to find out about swelling reduction but it takes me to stories I'd rather not read, about things going wrong. It has me so worried. I hope my plates don't get infected, and I hope my jaw doesn't move back. Those would be the worst things to happen.

I did read that there are some things I can do to get rid of the last little bit of swelling. I can drink lots of water (already doing this), take two 15 minute walks per day, and I can take bromelain, turmeric, quercetin, and vitamin c pills. I already have the turmeric.

Dr Google is like Psychology 101. You convince yourself you have every known problem. If you are truly worried, call your doctor.

I have no reason to think these things are happening. Just saying I'm worried. It's two things that can go wrong with this procedure. I'm fine though. Just one of those things I have to deal with until I'm all healed.

If you can balance your google reading to helpful info about getting rid of the last bit of swelling, and avoid the scary articles, that would be great.

I love tortilla soup, too!

I've been awake for 24 hours now. I'm trying to make it to 7 or 8 before I crash. I'm trying to reset my sleep cycle. This really sucks.
