Chewing is an underappreciated artform

DD got the approval today to chew very soft food. If it can be easily cut with the side of a fork she can eat it. So after spreading the excellent news, we headed to KFC for mashed potatoes and green beans. The mashed potatoes she got down pretty well. The green beans were a little harder. Since her jaw is in a new position, so are her teeth and they don't quite fit the way she remembers. But she was very happy.

Oh and she can now drink through a straw. Another trip to QT for a Coke. She is happy.

Did I say that already?
