The stitches came out on Thursday. The swelling seems to be going down but I’ve been left with an annoying hard lump on the left side of my cheek. I also suspect the stitches have fastened my cheek a little further up my gum than before, which is also interfering with opening my mouth. I still don’t have feeling back in part of it. My smile is very lopsided, but I’m only slurring my speech slightly, which is an improvement. Apart from that, the bruises are going down and the scrapes are healing. We still both tire easily, but that’s a good excuse to flop on the sofa and watch Firefly.
We went to the garden centre yesterday and got bamboo loops for the sweet peas and several metres of strawberry netting. The strawberries should be ready in a couple of weeks.
