Welcome to Healing Well.
Glad you have found some of the recovery journals. They are very helpful. There a few things to definitely remember, it will get worse about 2 to 3 weeks into recovery due to swelling, avoid solid meats and soft bread for a few months, chew your food VERY well and to a liquid if at all possible, stay hydrated, eat small frequent meals about 1/4 to 1/2 cup at a time, be very patient as the recovery can be slow but very much worth it.
