Day 15: A one direction whistle!

And that direction would be "in". I can whistle when I suck in!! It's the little things in life. I am really surprised at how quickly I am getting better. I think I just look quirky to the average person on the street and not full on disabled like I did a week ago.

Daily Changes

Things I could do today:
  • get some slight wrinkles in my forehead
  • make a better pucker
  • whistle when sucking air in
  • close my eye if I try (but it's still open when blinking - definitely the most noticeable flaw)
  • drink hot coffee without dribbling or even having to "hook" the cup into the corner of my mouth
I had another surge of 'break out into a big sweat for an hour' fever at 11:00am today. But for the last few days I have not woken up in a puddle of sweat. I'll take the daytime fever over the nighttime any day. The fever is followed by extreme tiredness and then that passes after a few hours. I also make a point today to eat as much as I could to make sure this fatigue was not caused by lack of food. I am confident it isn't.

Daily Mood:

Flinging, flanging fantastic! I went to the Farmer's Market and the Isla Vista Coop today to stock up on food and it was a wonderful outing. The sun was warm, I didn't need my baseball cap. At some point I have become able to look straight ahead with the light sensitivity I had for a while. Not sure when exactly that changed but it's been a couple days at least.

My face is tender to the touch in many places as if it is bruised (though it looks fine). But it is not a terrible pain and it is easy to forget about it completely until I touch my face.

My tongue is still slightly numb feeling and my sense of taste is very weak but those things don't bother me. I'm vain!! The non-blinking eye is the worst thing. My mouth has relaxed so my smile almost looks like a smile - kind of a cocky, half smile but that's okay.

Time for sleep. I really am making a point to get as much as possible.
