This day I turned the corner in terms of energy. I had a doctor’s appointment around noon and was prepping all morning to put on real clothes, make myself look presentable and eat so I wouldn’t get hungry. I took a small can of apricot juice (100 cal) along with me in case I get hungry. Doctor took an x-ray and then looked in my mouth. Inspected the stitches and made sure I couldn’t open my mouth and that the elastics were doing their thing. He said 1-2 more weeks with the splint. He was really pleased and I told him things were going well. He was concerned about nutrition and I told him I only lost about 3 lbs which made him feel good. We stopped at my house on the way home and picked up some extra food that I wanted to bring to my parent’s house. This is a good sign that I have this much energy.
