Healing nicely :)

Today it has been exactly one week since my big jaw surgery and I'm feeling pretty good! The surgery process was really simple and surprisingly comfortable. All of my nurses at MeritCare were very helpful and kind. Plus the morphine was great (I think, because I didn't have much pain at all!). 
 
I've been in the office since Monday trying to respond to emails and things. I can't speak all to well because I have a splint in my mouth to help align and heal my jaw. The splint will be taken out in a couple weeks, hopefully.  
 
Thank you to everyone for your words of encouragement, prayers, and funny stories. My surgeon and orthodontist both told me they are amazed how quickly I am recovering. I genuinely think it's because I've got such a wonderful group of friends supporting me and taking care of me. Thank you, thank you, thank you :) 
 
Kory took a photo of me each day throughout the last week (please excuse my bad hair day -- that'd be days one through three!)
