My lopsided grin

this is me six days after surgery.
this is what I thought I would look like after surgery.

Though I feel like I am smiling I look like I’m forcing a smile right after I lied. And I feel discouraged. 🙁 What I have been feeling: I’m having a debate in my head of whether I should update my profile picture in my messenger kids app. If I do, they might think that I’m angry at them for some reason.But I’m not! if I don’t, they might, well I don’t want to find out! Masks to the rescue!
