Day 3

My husband brought my daughter over for a bit today.  It was nice to see her, but she looked so confused.  She couldn't really understand me, and she looked at me really funny, but, she didn't cry.  I'm glad I got to see her.

 I graduated to a spoon today.  It was hard and messy, but it felt so much better to eat my runny mashed potatoes with a spoon.  Meds still go down better with a syringe though.  Today I ate yogurt, broccoli soup, pureed fruit, 2 glasses of milk with protein powder, runny mashed potatoes and mashed carrots.  It all hurt like hell, but I'm trying to keep up with my food so I heal well.  My days are consumed with meds, meals, brushing and rinsing, napping then starting it all over.  I expect the next few days will be a lot of the same. 

Some pics from today

My daughter sent me her birthday hat from Chuck E Cheeze to make me feel better.


  1. Hi Nichole! Looking for Day 3...Hang in there! Hugs to you.

  2. The hat pic is probably the cutest and saddest thing I've seen. I hope your swelling starts to go down soon. They say things only get better from here... Good luck. LOTS of good vibes being sent your way.

  3. Feel better Nichole! Your daughter is such a sweetie that she sent you her hat ;)

    Are you banded shut at all?

  4. I'm ready for better Amanda. Just trying to keep my chin up.

    Nikki, not banded shut at all. I asked about it and they said its not needed. my bite is also way off though, I'm trying to get in touch with someone to talk about it.
