I'm in the waiting room and I'm super early, I think I was a bit over enthusiastic to get here. No one is here yet. Butterflies are seriously taking over my body.

See you on the Bench

How did everyone do? I had some bad abdominal pressure yesterday but it got better throughout the day. This morning I have had some good burps and I have slight discomfort in the upper chest but not too bad. Walked a couple times yesterday and I will walk through the day today.

Not to bad. Cant really sleep. Recliner sucks. I'm not physically able to lay down in the bed I get severe shoulder pains when I try. Other than that I'm feeling really good.

I've also been walking a good bit.

The pain has been pretty significant, I'm glad about the meds they give me! Overall doing well, will go home later this morning. Have walked the halls & being up & moving feels better than laying in the bed.
Can't believe it's done!!!

Pain as bad for the first hour after I woke up then find with drugs until my IV came out and they couldn't get a new one in for 2.5 hrs during this time no meds so the pain came back. As soon as I was reconnected the meds got it under control.

Went for swallow test this morning now waiting for sign off for liquid Breakfast.

I have been up and walking lots which feels good. Slept pretty much most of the day and night. Feel very energized this morning.

Gas has moved up to chest from back just an inconvenience nothing very painful.

All clear on the swallow/leak test. Doctor came to visit and signed off in removing the IVs and ordered a clear liquid breakfast. Nice assortment of items so I can see what works.

When you think small sips think smaller.

Definitely some discomfort going down but it's all new and my new stomach and I will figure it.

At about pain level 2 just when I move and it's 24hrs after surgery.

I can go home as soon as I can tolerate a Protein Shake for lunch.

Right now everything is looking good and my keenest to get on wth my new life is in overdrive.
