I wanted to give you guys a quick update between cat naps and pain killers. The surgery went a million times better than I could have expected and that eased my phobia as well as all the support my friends, family, and you guys gave in the last few weeks. I even used less anxiety meds going in than usual so I feel great knowing my anginophobia is getting better. It doesn’t hurt to have only gotten 2.5-3 hours of sleep the night before due to my barking dog, lol.
Though I have been nervous, there have been no choking issues thus far and few swallowing issues. We have been managing pain well and the doctors were so helpful before leaving the hospital today I feel pretty confident we will have an early recovery. I can even talk a bit today. I will definitely be smaller after this week with all the soft foods and fluids, lol.
I feel like a huge relieve is off my shoulders even though there are still 2 week’s before I am considered ‘fully’ recovered.
