Weight loss or gain?

I bet everyone is excited about the upcoming Christmas celebrations, feast & gifts exchange etc. Well, sad to say that I am not able to enjoy this occasion because I just had four of my wisdom teeth extracted last Friday. Yup, its four teeth altogether... Ouch! That was pretty scary because the dentist had to cut open my gums to remove two of my lower wisdom teeth. Gosh, that was indeed a 'major operation' in my life spending more than 3hrs in the clinic. My whole mouth & tongue were numb from the anesthesia. That night when I came home, I was unable to ingest any food & fresh blood was flowing out like a river.

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.

Geez, i have the same wisdom teeth condition as you. I still havent gathered the guts to extract them out yet! Your chiffon looks great! and i love the doraemon shaped cookies!

Hey Crustabakes,
I have no guts initially too.. but because their growth deviates from the rest, so I guess I have no choice especially when my dentist mentioned in the long run it will affect the tooth in front.
