Today I decided to take a shower (supervised of course). I lightly touched my face with mild soap to try to clear the surface. It was tender to the touch. I have very little energy but am dealing pretty well being a couch potato. I still have not taken any painkillers including Advil or aspirin. I take the antibiotic 3 times a day using a baby syringe. Thankfully, it’s the bubble gum/berry flavored amoxicillin which is tolerable. My husband came up with a tasty banana shake for me to eat. It’s a calorie monster but it’s heavenly and filling. Because it’s banana, it easily blends to fit between my teeth. I also ate sloppy jello, jello which has been slightly melted after setting and whisked so it’s not clumpy. I tried the Ensure clear and it was disgusting. That went right out in the trash. See the rest of my menu items below. Everything required a syringe at this point. My parents came over to take care of me for a while. My mom heard that people recover faster if they are physically active, so she bundled me up and insisted on taking a walk around the apartment complex. We made it to the other side of the building and back very slowly. This was broad daylight so I had sunglasses on but was still squinting. Because my nose is stuffy and my mouth is banded shut, by the time I reached the couch, I was wheezing. I spent the next 10 minutes laying on the couch taking long breaths trying to catch up. I continue to take Afrin as often as possible but my nose is feeling worse as the day goes on.
