The last two days have been a dramatic turnaround for me. I even considered skipping my doctor's appointment today.

My gums are all healed aside from the tissue covering my impacted wisdom teeth. And although its tender there, there isn't any pain. My throat is 100% better. I still have a little discomfort in my esophagus when I swallow, but today I got yet another perscription (protonix) which should fix it. It's not much to complain about.

Last night I ate a bowl of pasta that Julie fixed for me. I was able to chew and swallow. It was a small but significant victory.

Overall I feel pretty damn good. I'm happy.

Just think... on Monday they're gonna cut open my gums and it'll start all over again, right?
