The doc put me on an opiate of some sort (tramadol). Thank fuck he did since regular Advil doesn’t seem to do anything.

My face is swollen, ridiculous, and it still hurts despite the painkillers. I miss eating, drinking, and smoking (mostly the eating though). I also have a lot of bruising around my lipo from whatever they used to keep my mouth open, and that hurts quite a bit, too.

I’m just thankful that I have a reasonable employer and manager - this is all paid sick leave. One less thing to worry about, I suppose.
