Well I am feeling much better, although awfully tired. They had to intubate me during surgery and they really injured my larynx. I had a constant tickle in my throat. My sides were sore from coughing so much. That has thankfully healed. I have a large hole in my buttocks that has to be kept open to drain. Yuck! I don’t wish an abscess on anyone! I know, I have shared more information than you really wanted to read. I just hope this is the beginning of the end to my problems down there! Mike has been waiting on both me and my mother. I have felt so helpless. I can’t wait till I can sit comfortably. Thank you all for your well wishes!
