dental surgery went well. This morning
I went in for a post-op checkup and
the dentist said things seem to be healing
normally. I am still taking painkillers,
I am on a fluid diet and there is still some
bleeding, but it hasn't been a week
this will put an end to the infections
and horrid medications.
The fluid diet is healthy, but tiresome. Every morning I make a smoothie, with a banana, peaches and 1% milk. For lunch I've been drinking a mug full of cauliflower cheese cream soup that I made for myself. Dinner is a cornstarch milk pudding with a generous addition of egg whites to keep my protein intake high. In between meals I am drinking vegetable juice, cherry juice and water. It all tastes great but now I'm getting bored and find myself craving solid food. Not for another week or so though.
I'll be back at work on Thursday, and I have my fingers crossed that I'll have the stamina to stick it out. I'm going to give it my best shot.
The surgery has dominated my thoughts and actions for the past week. Actually, it has been on my mind all summer. Not a particularly pleasant undertone for the summer. It is all over and hopefully done with now, and the best part is that we did manage to earn enough money to pay the bill in its' entirety. No loan needed for health care! I was very lucky to have that little weekend job.
Today seems like fall, and it is very cool at night. We have put the cozy comforter back on the bed, and we have needed it for the last few nights.
A lot of things seem up in the air at the moment. I am waiting for the insurance claim on the trailer to progress, maybe next week the adjuster says. I am looking forward to eating solid food again in the next few weeks. I am waiting to hear the status of an exam I recently wrote. I am beginning to study for another certification exam I will sit for in October. And last, but certainly not least, I am waiting for our third grandchild to arrive. Any time now, any time. Safe journey Luna and little one.
