Today we had the first of many doctor appts! We got the 4 referrals that we need, and hopefully tomorrow we can start getting appointments made. The orthodontist, oral-facial surgeon, and Dr. Griffeth will be in touch and will decide how to proceed from here in regards to getting his bite correct again. He may need braces again, even though his teeth "look" ok, because his bite is quite "off".
He is eating a lot better now, but the reality check at the dr.'s office today was that he's still down 15 pounds from pre-accident. We are giving him high calorie foods so I know he'll get it back once he's able to start working out, etc.
His face is still numb. We notice a lot of his expressions aren't quite symmetrical yet (kind of like when you get back from the dentist and are numb on one side...your face doesn't quite move right), but that will come back. I think this remaining swelling will take a long time to completely go away. Most people would not notice his swelling, but we know that chubby right cheek isn't really "him"! He's competely off the pain meds now, so he's still improving by leaps and bounds!
