0 Day 2. Discharged!

Just took my first shower since Friday morning, at home. It's weird not being able to feel any water running down your face.

I am glad to be home though. Currently have the living room/my bedroom quarantined from the kitties. Say hello to my at home nursing team!

day 2 post double jaw (orthognathic) surgery at home nursing team

My swelling has dissipated a good amount since yesterday. According to my sister, it's still big but not "buzz lightyear" big. She cracks me up.

Now that I don't have an IV, I must remember to keep drinking water. Staying hydrated with this much pain meds and antibiotics in me is a must.

I'm also gaining an addicition to the Ensure nutritional drinks.Mom and sis are looking for a costco-sized pack of it right now. Doctor says I should have about 4 a day, but I'm thinking maybe one or two more than that...

Paul did a great job of cleaning and sanitizing the apartment. I owe him one.
