Just as my family arrived around 12 pm, the nurse came with my paperwork so I could leave. I then tried to explain to them about how I had to go to the doctor’s office and I started crying because all I wanted to do was go home and lay around. I had been doing so well, I didn’t want to have any emergencies especially on the road. They then were trying to figure out how to get to the doctor’s since it was a different location than normal. I was loaded up with a fresh pack of ice on my face and was wheeled out to the car. The sun hurt my eyes a lot since I could not squint to block out the sun. We arrived at the doctor’s office and they sent me back pretty quickly. I think I was scaring the other people in the waiting room. I told them that my nose was stuffing up so the nurse came over with some rubbing alcohol to clean out the blood and gunk. It felt a bit better. It was painful for them to pull on my lip to gain access to the molar than needed a new bracket. It didn’t take as long as I thought but it was overall unpleasant. Then they put extra elastics on and now I couldn’t be understood when I talked.

Got home around 3 pm and was thirsty. I lay on the couch the rest of the day and watched tv. Started eating water and juice with the syringe. I also started using the Afrin to try to open up my nose. My husband made lamb with tsziki sauce and blended some up for me. It smelled so good. I squirted some in my mouth, hit my teeth and bounced right back out. I was shocked! Turns out with the splint which molds perfectly to the shape of the teeth, not all “liquids” can fit through. Basically everything needed to be strained with a fine strainer. Defeated, I returned to juices and broth.
