    Thanks for asking, she's only today starting to feel more like herself again. I can't believe the pain she was in and her face is still all swollen, mostly on the right side, as that was the worst side - the upper was up in her sinus area and resting just above her last tooth. Horrible. She went through all the vicodin and was also taking advil, the ice packs, etc. When she tried to return to work on Sunday after 2.5 days she couldn't do it. Then on Monday she went in but left early. She said just standing up for a long period of time was painful.

    She had her follow up yesterday and the DR said every thing looked very good and he said he could tell she'd been rinsing well. He told her to drink more water and and she's heading back to his office in a few days to have the stitches taken out. I hate that creepy feeling the most. It's been nearly 27 years and I can still remember.

    Anyway, thanks, she's doing well.
