Its been a couple days now and I'm feeling much better, no pain at all. My left side had swollen real big yesterday, but after leaving ice on it last night, it has gone down significantly. (though still swollen)
I also started brushing, and rinsing my mouth yesterday. It seems I'm making some pretty good progress. My diet has pretty much consisted of pudding (vanilla, chocolate and tapioca), mashed potatoes, soup (tomato and chicken noodle) and smoothies. Though it is getting to the point where I can probably start taking on tougher foods.
Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes!
