Today is my 3rd POD (post operative day), my cheeks were still slightly swollen. I can feel the tightness of the stitches inside my mouth. :( I could only take very liquid food or puree diet now. I was wondering will I lose some weight when I start work again in January 2011? But, judging on the food that I am eating now (loads of ice cream, yoghurt, porridge, mashed potatoes), I supposed I may have weight gain instead of loss? I am now looking forward to Christmas eve to have my stitches removed, but that does not mean I can have my usual diet then. It still takes time for the wound to heal & tissues to grow. Probably I need to wait for a couple of weeks?
Alright, enough of the disgusting teeth issues. (hopefully you are not eating when reading this!)
My sister came to my place to visit me this afternoon, so I specially bake a Chiffon cake for her tea time.

With the remaining egg yolks, I bake a tub of cookies for the clinic staffs as my appreciation to them.
