Surgery Delayed

No surgery today.  They want to do dental surgery at the same time they scrape out the dead cheekbone, so it will be week after next.  This way, she can go to EFY @ BYU next week, which is really important to her.

Nerve Dr. said her facial nerves are healing well and there is nothing more needed but time.  Her smile is returning, as is her ability to raise her right eyebrow.  She did say, though, that KT needs to exercise her jaw by keeping her mouth closed completely for 5 - 15 minutes twice a day to prevent permanent locking of her mouth in an open posture.  Pam was glad to have validation of her long efforts to get KT to work on that!

Pain today at a level 6, which is better than the 8 she reported earlier in week.  We'll be home Friday evening.
