    His teeth don't bite down on the back (Only his front teeth touch), and the dentist said his teeth would eventually break if they didn't break, and realign his jaw. So on Wednesday he had his surgery done.

    His face is very swollen, he has to breathe through tubes in his mouth. He can't eat, as his teeth are wired shut.
    I feel SO bad! He's in so much pain, and there's nothing we can do but give him his medicine what seems like every hour. I'm the one who has to care for him currently- His fiancé is at work, my mom is at her hair appointment, my dad can't move (His back hurts), and sister is at her skit practice, and my grandma is crippled.

    Next time to give him medicine is in an hour and a half... I'm nervous. Never fed him through the tubes before. And he can't talk (He has to use a notepad, or try to mumble...)

    [​IMG] He keeps "telling" me to stay calm, but then he wakes up whimpering (He's sleeping on the couch)...
