First it was swollen from a slight infection, now my right cheek is swollen from trauma. All was going well until my tooth broke. A tiny tip stubbornly remained, After about nine attempts he was finally able to extract the piece which was the size of a glass pin head.
Needless to say it was quite an experience.
Food choices were limited. Nothing hot, no straws. I did stray a bit. planning ahead for healthier options of soft cool smooth foods, made me drift toward the carb heavy side. I allowed myself many splurges, one of which was plain kefir yogurt with raw honey. I rationalized the honey because of the supposed antibacterial qualities. Truthfully I did not feel like eating much. Ice packs and Vicodin saw me through the day.
Today's fare has expanded to warm foods and I can chew on the opposite side. I still desire carb heavy foods. With every situation I still have choices. So what to choose? Perhaps a nice green protein smoothie will help.
