“Sometimes this old farm feels like a long lost friend
Yes, ‘n, hey it’s good to be back home again”
10/15/12: Cats, naps, pain meds and Michael’s special Haagen Dazs milkshake for dinner. Life is good again…well, at least okay. It IS good to be home. I had a lazy afternoon, lying back in my recliner, half-sleeping and half-listening to my music collection on the iPad. I have some intense pain in brief episodes, generally after I nap and don’t move my tongue awhile and then try to drink/swallow upon awakening. Swallowing is a little tricky, not from a pain point of view so much as mechanically being a bit off but I am already doing better with that. I’m to remain on a full liquid diet until after the next surgery on the 24th. I’m treading carefully with the pain meds, fearful of nausea and vomiting. So far, just a little queasiness. Michael is taking very good care of me and nagging regularly about keeping hydrated and trying to eat.
Thanks for all the well wishes and for playing our music game with us!
