Thank you for all the nice comments after my last, rather whiny post. I am feeling much, much better today. In fact, I haven’t needed any pain medication at all today! I still have some pain, but it’s more like a regular old sore throat. My uvula is still mega-swollen, so much so that I can’t sleep comfortably lying down. I think the back of my tongue might be swollen, too, but I can’t get a good look back there.
I’m hoping to eat something normal today, but I can’t decide what I want. You’d think it would be easy after a week and a half of liquid and soft foods, but it’s actually quite difficult to decide a) what I want (I want it all), and b) what I can handle (who the hell knows).
I think I’ve lost about 10 pounds so far. On a big girl like me, that’s not much, but I’ll take what I can get! Hopefully, I can keep up the momentum of small portions.
Thanks for sticking with me during all these boring updates! I promise only one or two more of these before getting back to the main topic of this blog.
