It's been a week since I've brushed my teeth because of my fall and subsequent wired jaw. My mouth felt, and probably smelled, awful. I have been swishing clear water around and letting it dribble out because I was beside myself due to my poor oral hygiene. The doctor's nurse told me no mouth rinses and to use a toothbrush to brush the outsides of my teeth. An adult toothbrush would not fit in the small space I created by pulling out 1/3 of my mouth. (The middle of my upper lip is covered in a big scab so it doesn't stretch at all.)
On the internet, one of the maxillofacial surgery centers had discharge instructions for a wired jaw that said to use a child's toothbrush. So Bob was nice enough to buy a child's toothbrush for me this evening. It is the cutest thing ever in a toothbrush!
Check it out. It looks like a kangaroo and has suction cup feet so it can stand on the counter and look adorable. (This is an Aquafresh Kids, 3+ years, soft toothbrush, in case you're wondering.)

It's the little things. Don't ever take them for granted.
