    Paul,
    For the first couple of days, I use a pencil between the lips to keep the muscle tone up. Try and keep it from sagging - without pushing out the lower lip. This can bridge up to a week of not playing! Tongueing execises can also be done without the horn. Once my body starts to take back control, I start playing again.
