Day 11 - I drank out of a cup!
Today, I took a major step. I graduated from drinking from a syringe to drinking out of a cup. Yes, a cup. I was very proud of myself. My lower lip is still totally numb so I can't feel the cup at all...so a lot of concentration is required to make sure I don't spill all over the place. My wonderful, supportive brother Stephen informed me that drinking out of a cup is a skill most people have already acquired by the age of two. However, he has not had jaw surgery and doesn't understand the challenges that come with it. I still can't eat from a fork, but I'll be working on that shortly. Well..its not really necessary until I can eat solid foods I guess. Still on that fabulous liquid only diet.
