Jaw Surgery A Success

I know I should have posted this sooner, but Brian's jaw surgery was a success. He was in the hospital for 4 days. I visited him again after he went home to his dad's and he was doing great. He was up and around and eating soups and ensure. He had his checkup with the doctor on Friday and they have him wearing rubber bands. This is too keep his jaw closed together. The muscles on his face also have to retrain themselves to close his mouth together. He can now sleep via his nose and not his mouth all the time.

He said he feels great. We are going to lunch on Monday, we get pizza and salad, he gets soup...but that's okay, we are excited to see him after a week as the swelling was still there last week.

I will be taking more pictures. Hopefully these I'll be able to post because as promised, I told him no swollen jaw pictures on the blog.

He is so brave!
