The last couple of days I have been feeling better. I could tell my mouth was healing. I ate my first real meal yesterday - very exciting! And I returned to working out today.

I'm pretty certain I lost my last stitch today. Apparently "the stitches will dissolve in about a week" means "you will spit them out in your sink when brushing your teeth in over a week."

This afternoon at work I could tell the last stitch was trying to come out. It was all loose and irritating. I tried rinsing and spitting in the bathroom, but it wouldn't budge. The last hour and a half of work drove me crazy - more than usual I mean. When I got home I had better lighting looking in my mirror, and so I eventually just pulled it out.

Hmm. So, make that "you will spit them out or pull them out in over a week."

I can't believe I just wrote those details.
