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?
