Compared to the past four days, I consider myself finally recovered from having my wisdom teeth removed! I may still look a bit chipmunky, I may still be taking ibuprofen for some pain and swelling, I may still have stitches in my mouth, and I may still be on a soft food diet...but for goodness sake I can get out of bed and go back to work!
I was eager to wake up before the break of dawn this morning to take Zeke out for a 40 minute walk. Ahh, how I've missed you morning walks! I think Zeke was happy to have me out and about as well. He's been very sympathetic over the past four days, always sleeping by my side and treating me very gently, but he's been itching for me to get back to my normal healthy self.
When we got back from our walk, I heated up my usual pre-made breakfast. Soaked oats! Perfectly perfect as usual and right on track for my soft food diet. I added a hint of skim milk and agave after heating them up, and I was ready to go!
I also heated up some leftover scrambled eggs (1 egg, 1 egg white) and topped them with salt and pepper.
Unfortunately, my stomach has shrank consderably since having my wisdom teeth removed, so I only made it through a few bites after I finished my oatmeal before I had to call it quits.
I guess a shrunk stomach isn't always a bad thing? Now I have to try to keep it that size!
I'm off to work! Today, like every Tuesday, is my busy day. Work #1, work #2, then out to the barn to teach lessons before doing some riding of my own. I'm really diving head first back into the real world, huh?!
