Well, Hmmm. I sit here typing this staring at the pain meds trying to dare my body not to take them. My neck where the incision is of course swollen and bruised. My leg that was paralyzed with surgery has come back, so I'm just wobbly now. The arm that I had the surgery for is better every day. My voice is F'd up and I'm on vocal rest, my larnyx was compromised with the length of surgery. I am still on a liquid diet but am slowly progressing to soft, pureed things. My throat really got the raw end of the deal. One because the surgery ended up being almost 6 hours, Two - this was the second surgery this year that involved my esophagus. I think it is flippin' me the big bird right now!
I am still wickedly tired. If I can stay awake for more than three hours at a time that is an accomplishment.
Of course I had to get the gratuitous bladder infection from the hospital catheters! We called my primary care and said we knew it was an infection please don't make me come in. So they told my hubby to come pick up a cup and then bring it back. Good people.
