I've been taking lots of natural stuff to speed healing and reduce swelling (arnica, bromelain, quercetin, walking, drinking tons of water) and I'm happy to say that the major swelling has come down a lot. Minor swelling remains in my cheeks and upper lip which will probably be around for a few more months. We'll see!
My range of motion continues to improve and I can smile better than yesterday. It still looks scary, but not as scary.
Feeling continues to come and go in my face and lips, little flickers and patches here and there. Unfortunately this stupid headache keeps grabbing me in its kung-fu death grip. During the last episode I added listening to a meditation CD for healing to the moist heat from my bed buddy (that just sounds funny but I swear that's what it's called). It definitely helped to un-frazzle my nerves.
Fatigue is still a challenge so I took 2 short walks today instead of 1 longer one. It was a beautiful day!
