A Ruff past 2 weeks
I am so sorry to hear your father passed away. I lost my mother quite suddenly when I was 36, and it was very difficult. It got better with time, but I still miss her to this very day.
On the other hand, I'm glad you were able to go through with the surgery. I have heard of several folks with esophageal spasms, and they all seemed to get better in a fairly short amount of time.
Please accept my condolences as well! I pray that they will get your spasms under control. Did you get medicine for spasms? How are you getting fluids if you can't drink? I pray you will get better immediately. Be blessed.
As for the surgery it will get better you just have to take it day by day. One step at a time. I lost a large number in a couple of days and they tell me it was fluid. they pump you full of IV fluids in the hospital so when they take the IV out you loose a lot of the water weight.
I hope you feel better and if there is anything any of us can do let us know. You are amongst friends!
I hope you are feeling better soon and that your recovery goes really great from here forward!
The 20 lb loss has to help your spirits just a little bit!
Big Hugs for you girlie! Hang in there and I am sending a prayer up for you now!

We had surgery on the same day. It's funny, Saturday was my "bad" day too. I was thinking, I don't want to do this anymore, I want out of here (they kept me until Monday), I just want it to be over. Then I realized it was a small bought of post-surgical - post-anesthesia depression. Once I realized what was happening, the next day was good and I moved on.
I'm sorry to hear about your spasming, that can happen after any surgery. What I found is I tolerate room temperature water the best. Cold water just didn't do it for me. OR, warm, not ho****er (broth) seems to be ok.
I hope you do better soon. I will keep you in my prayers!
