[post_page_title]A liquid diet[/post_page_title]
Many of us take our jaws for granted, but we never really realize how important they are in our daily lives. We need them to eat and to talk, and Ellie soon realized how much she relied on her jaw after she had the surgery. In order for her new jaw to heal, she was put on a liquid diet for a whole month. She had to eat all of her meals in a liquefied form through a straw, and was not allowed to eat any form of solid food for months.
