1 week down 5 to go

I had an appt with the oral surgeon this morning. Good news is that everything is still aligned and healing well. Bad news is that I have 5 weeks to go. No way to cut the wires early. I also got my lip stiches out last night, so despite the slightly green face I'm getting back to normal.
Week one is done. Net loss of 5lbs.

Looking good ;) New taco ride quote "I just don't want to do anything to get a piece of trail named after me" Nick L. just thought I would throw that out there.

That is funny, not is laughing kind of way...

So what are they going to name that section of trail? Wounded Griz trail?

Glad you're doing better Tom. At 5 lbs a week you should be down to 145 by your 1st race and a climbing fool. Will that be the TDF?

Healing looks like it is progressing along quite nicely.

How's the talking going with the wired shut jaw? You might end up being a shoe-in as a ventriloquist at the end of 5 weeks. '-}

Keep on healing, Tom.
