Chipmunk Cheeks Redux

Deja vu. I think Kim actually looks worse than John did last year. I didn't take pix of John last year because I didn't want to embarrass him. Kim, however is my ham, and said she'd be disappointed if I didn't blog about it. It's mostly one-sided as you can see from the picture below. That's today. Yesterday she was drugged up and peeved at every one at the oral surgeon's office. She spent the majority of yesterday and today in her recliner. Though she is definitely more bored today.

She's been eating lots of homemade pudding, applesauce, we even tried rice pudding, but it was too much for her mouth to take. Today she tried some chicken soup with veggies and a smooshed up veggie hot dog. She was craving more substantial food, including meat that she normally doesn't like. I am hoping that the cold packs will help with the swelling soon. She's been using them most of the day.

I know my knits are appreciated when they are worn out in spots. Both thumbs and at least one pointer finger needed to be redone. I think he may have caught them on something.


became these again. I got them sent right back to the recipient, he should have gotten them today.

I love the tiger striping on the gloves.

Sympathy to Kim!

I totally sympathize, I got my wisdom teeth out about a year ago and it was no fun. What worked well for me was peanut butter milk shakes. They were tasty and had lots of protein too.

Poor baby! Eggnogs are a good source of protein, too, as is a nice eggy custard. How about yogurt? Bless her dear heart!
