My throat is getting better quickly. A few times today I was able to pick up a cup of water and drink without having to use lidocaine first! That is a big improvement. In addition to a protein drink today, I was able to eat some soup for lunch and a little bit of the Thanksgiving dinner that we had for dinner. The bites are small, and I probably ate a half cup total, but it’s something,

I have a feeling it’s going to be a long recovery to get my energy back. I took a shower today and sat in a chair for about 15 minutes. The rest of the day I was reclined in bed at various different angles.

I am down a few more pounds on the scale, but hopefully that will slow down soon. I go get fluids again tomorrow and I’m hoping that is that last time!
