Y'all were so funny about my tongue! Thank you for your sweet comments of disbelief and a few of you even sent me really funny e-mails wanting detailed descriptions of my "ailment". But I did get several questions many times, so I'll quickly say that no, my tongue does not hurt in any way. It is only half of my tongue and honestly, I hardly even notice it anymore. There are certain times when it will tingle a little (kind of feels like when your foot goes to sleep) but in all....I'm over it. Right after it happened I bit my tongue all the time and I would bite it HARD. I couldn't feel it until I had bitten down really, really far. But now, it's just kind of a way of life and It hardly effects me. I have no speech problems, so for that I am very grateful! The corrective surgery did help a little bit. Instead of the intense tingling and zero feeling in the right half of my tongue I have a bit more feeling towards the center of my tongue. The left side is completely normal. And finally, I had a couple questions of taste...it's really hard to tell because the right side of my tongue is A-ok, but the majority of the tatse buds on the right side are dead (according to the doctor). But I really don't have a problem with tasting foods. I do have heightened heat sensation. Like if something is hot then to me it is REALLY hot. Like scalding. So, in a nutshell, that's what it's like with a partially numb tongue! And to my commenter who also has this....holy cow!! I could not even believe that! I am so sorry you have the same issue, but I'm also so glad to know I'm not the only person out there with really bad luck! Ha!
Did any of you see Dancing with the Stars last night? I didn't, but I DVRd it. I can't wait to watch. Who are your early favorites? Was Jake super cheesy and goofy? I have to admit that I am not a fan of Kate Gosslin. I really have never been a fan of her even before all of the drama so seeing her on the show will be interesting. I do love Erin Andrews! I think she is so sweet and fun (you know, since we're BFF and all....Kind of like me and Joey Potter...I have an issue with thinking these people are exactly as they are on TV) so I can't wait to see how she does.
