JonnyLawless asked me as an aside in another thread how my accident recovery is going.

Here's my response:

I cannot feel the middle of either top or bottom lip, and both are still slightly swollen (they were split apart and had some bio-gel inserts that are being slowly reabsorbed into me).

I still have visible scarring on my nose (looks like an abrasion), chin (Harrison Ford) and lip below my nose (hard to shave).

I have not yet gotten permanent replacements for my teeth. Since eight teeth need replacing and there was bone loss, it takes a long time for the whole procedure. I have a temporary bridge in.

I look like me from my MMA fighting days, where a few things don't quite look right. If you didn't know me, I don't think you would say I was in an accident. If you know me, I look a bit off.

Overall, I am extremely impressed with how well they fixed everything. The accident was late September. I expect all procedures to be done by that time this year.

The repeated dental visits are a pain in more than one way. But it's all coming along (slowly), thanks.

I look like this now:

For those who hadn't seen what I looked like after initial surgery, you can see it here:

This is even more impressive when you consider what Paul looked like *before* the accident:

For some reason that pic uploaded as a GIF. My lip doesnt look that oddly miscolored in real life in the center.

Pretty sure I deliberately avoided reading about this when it happened, because I knew I wasn't going to like it, and I like to keep a firm hand on the ignorance/bliss tiller. So reflex alone explains why I clicked on that just now.

He looks sorta like your avatar in the before pic which makes the after pic all that more impressive. Glad to hear you are doing well Paul!
