Day 28 - 4 Weeks!!

Hey y'all. So happy for 4 weeks. Things are good except that I'm getting more achey/pain as my numbness eases. My face still feels like it's numb from standing outside on a blistery winter's day.

Saturday night I went to the 50th birthday bash of my former boss. There were tons of people there I haven't seen or talked to since before I left that job a year ago. Only my boss and his wife knew about my surgery, so I had a TON of conversations about it and why I was speaking a bit "off". It was also 4 hours of non-stop smiling. I was so exhausted, my jaw was sore and I was slurring my speech by the end of the night. The next day my jaw was aching pretty badly. On Sunday I went to visit Jeff's family for his sister's bday party and had another long day of talking, smiling and laughing... but I didn't mind, I was so happy to see everyone! His family seemed really surprised by my progress and excited about the results.

I'm still more swollen on my right side, which is also the side I have pain - a dull ache on my jawline.

Here are pics from tonight:


  1. Looking good Amanda!!!
    Love your little photo-bomber :)

  2. So glad to hear you're doing well. I totally hear you with the jaw getting tired. Every time I'm out talking to people I end up with a very tired face by the end of it.
    I agree with Ellie, awesome little guy in your photos
    Your face looks so good!! I swear you have some super healing powers woman!!

  3. Beautiful, as always! If you look this good at 4 weeks, I can't wait to see your end results :)

  4. Thanks everyone, I really appreciate it!
