Day 12 - Why is there smoothie on the ceiling?

Today began like any normal day.  I woke up, took some painkillers and began to eat my breakfast smoothie.  Strawberries, bananas, Greek yogurt, milk, honey, & some protein powder are the main ingredients I believe. Now, while i can drink regular liquids like water or orange juice out of a cup normally, I can't drink anything thats thick like soup or a smoothie so I was using one of my syringes.  Let me first mention that those syringes are often a lot of work to use.  First you have to use a lot of strength to pull the smoothie into the syringe, then you have to again use some strength to push the smoothie (or whatever) back out.  Sometimes during this process things go wrong.  Like the other day during a syringe malfunction I punched myself in the nose.   Today...

While i was squeezing smoothie out of the syringe and into my mouth, there was apparently more pressure than the straw could handle.....The straw was pushed off the syringe and well...the smoothie went with it. I'm really amazed that there was enough forced to get the smoothie all the way up to the ceiling!  Everything happened pretty fast.. But I know i saw that smoothie fly through the air and it was pretty crazy. 



This is the culprit!!!


Most of my life is really pretty boring... These weird things just keep happening to keep things interesting I guess.

  1. Becca, these posts are really fun to read. :) I think things like this happen during times like this to keep us amused and enjoying this unique little experience we get to have. Or rather, I have experienced similar oddities during healing periods before. :) Keep posting!

  2. Haha! That happened to me too! Except my drink went all over the living room wall. Ooops!

    It's actually really comforting to read your blog because almost everything you've experienced I am currently experiencing.

    1. Those are all good ideas :) ppl also at the time gave me just other random stuff, not necessarily related to jaw surgery, but just nice to have and that was good too. Like someone gave me a purse, and I still use it. If you wanna stay on jaw surgery theme, comfy pillows or fuzzy blankets to drag around the house are a good idea. Good luck!
