It has been four weeks. Four long, hard, crazy weeks.
After two weeks when I could start eating pureed foods, I felt a lot better; more human.
I have been living on blended chili, tuna, applesauce, and oatmeal. The last few days I have been working on non-blended foods like eggs and fish. That did not go so well. Today I had scrambled eggs for breakfast. They got painfully stuck. After a few minutes, I threw them up.
I sipped water for a while and at lunch I tried to eat fish and mashed potatoes. They, too, got stuck and came right back up. I called the nurse and she said that eggs are notorious for getting stuck. Once that hapens, everything is irritated and swollen which makes food harder to keep down.
Now I have to go back to liquids for a day, then purees for a day, then back to soft foods.
