Difficult week. Some major and unsightly scabbing. The scab on the bottom lip is only holding on at one end and can be folded back. I'm not sure if the redness on the inferior part of the lip is any paler. I would like to hope that the skin is healing back into the mouth along the 'stiching in' line. The lips feel very good despite all this. I cannot smile or laugh properly still but the movement I do get does not cause them to crack/bleed, which is a small bonus.
