No dice

Hubby has been to every drugstore in town, by the way, and cannot find the syringe adaptor. I plan to ask Dr. C about it next week, but by then I should have looser elastics and can shove food in between the bigger space.

There is also apparently no such thing as liquid Advil here. I can take the children Motrin if I want (like 30 ml!). Oh well.

Do you want me to mail you one? I'd be happy to, they're cheap. Although, in reality, it'd probably get stuck in customs and you wouldn't need it by the time it arrived. And yes, there's no such thing as a more "adult" or concentrated Motrin. I had to drink the ol' children's version. I used a generic ibuprofen with 100mg in 5ml. I always take 800mg ibuprofen, so that was 40ml. I held my breath as I slurped it down, and drank a sip of water on top of the ibuprofen before I swallowed. Then I'd urgently follow with a rinsing/swallowing of more water. ULGH!

Thanks for the offer, but you're the time it got here it would probably (hopefully) be unnessessary. I'm doing okay with my "syringe against the tooth gap" trick. Today I had mac & cheese and mashed potatoes and gravy in that thing!

Hi Rebecca,
Just caught up on your blog. You look fantastic. Any lopsidedness? is really from swelling and tissue settling - at least that's what my surgeon said when I asked him about my crooked chin when I smile. He said I have to wait 6 months for it to really settle in, maybe a year. And I didn't even notice that your nose looked crooked at all - honestly. I just thought how lucky she has such minimal swelling and is looking really good for just a week post op.

If you get sick of the syringe, I drank stuff out of a small plastic cup. I slurped stuff in with a baby spoon too. Stuff got stuck in the rubber bands though - oh the joys of being banded.

Good luck with the meds. I was able to sneak pills in thankfully - that kid stuff tastes nasty - how do they expect kids to take it???
