Day 1

Thank u everyone who has sent me wishes. They were greatly appreciated.

How did all get through this?! Eating (drinking) is almost impossible. My lips are ginormous. And my mouth is filled w/guck.

Was in ICU last night and just got moved into a room in the pediatric department. I already feel a little bit better being in a quiet place.

Last night there was an earthquake here! I kid you not. 4.6 in Maine but felt it pretty good.

Havent had a ton of pain, just swollen. I did puke once last night after given some morphine too quickly. I've just been taking Motrin and am good.

The first pic was from today The second from last nigh.


  1. Awww, look so cute! You really do. I was far less attractive straight out of surgery. LOL! I'm glad your surgery went well, and it's awesome to see you on the other side. Happy Healing!

  2. Welcome to the other side! This is a hard week but ull be amazed how one day u will wake up much better! I promise it will get easier. This is coming from the person that was so pessimistic in the the first week lol. The worst part is almost over. And only you would look so cute coming right from surgery lol

  3. Awww Amanda!! You are so adorable in your hospital bed.
    Honestly the first week will be tough but just make sure that if you are taking pain meds you are taking anti nausea. I tried to go without morphine but ended up needing it. See if they can give you a prescription for nausea pills to take home with you. also Ativan is really good for night. Its a little pill that dissolves under your tongue.
    Hope you feel better an better day by day. If you have any questions email me
    Sending you lots of prayers and good vibes.

  4. It will get easier I promise! Are you using syringes to eat? This was all I could eat with at first. Hope you feel better soon

  5. well done amanda for getting through to the other side! stay smiling, looking forward to your updates as your bite is (or should i say was now!) similar to mine! sending healing thoughts your way :) xx
