Bearing Gums

On Friday, I had some plastic surgery done on the gums in the lower right corner of my mouth. Specifically, a piece of tissue was taken from my palate and grafted onto my gums to combat a receding gum line.

I have to wear a plastic, form-fitting palate cover for a while and also avoid chewing on the right side of my mouth for a couple of weeks. I'm managing OK, though "th" sounds are going to be tricky for a bit.
