I am not going to say that I do not have pain in the throat or indeed that I am not tired every day but I can really feel improvements. Each day is a little easier to get through. I am sure there will be days when I have knock backs and these I shall have to cope with. Thinking back to some of the bad days and nights I had in December and how I feel now, it is very exciting. I do have a few worries about going back to work next month as my voice goes quickly and I get so dry in the mouth. I hope healing continues apace.
Food is very difficult and I am a bit of a coward in trying new things. I am worried about what might happen if I swallow it badly. Having said this I had a Mug Shot today which had pasta in it. Whilst it hurt the throat and pain shoots to my left ear, I managed to eat 10 or so spoons of pasta. Very proud of myself. Watched some golf on TV today and started thinking about hitting a ball again. Not now but in the future…definitely moving forward. Tonight I think I will look at golf weapons and see whether there is a 3 wood with my name on it. Maybe some nice golf buddies might walk with me for a slow three holes sometime soon…when a bit warmer.
I have ventured out the door to the library and got a couple of good books. Missing my book club tomorrow…I did not manage to read the book but hope the boys have a good time. Took the little Self to the Hobbit movie at the weekend which was fun. I managed to stay awake and keep control of my throat. Great to go on a trip. Saw some staff at school on Monday night and realise that I miss them. They were very kind with some lovely words. Received so many lovely cards since I have been ill but one that arrived this week was very touching as an old tutee had taken it upon herself to get messages from her old tutor group. So lovely..had a small tear in the eye. They are all at University now maybe even in their 2nd year. A long time since I had them as a group.
Hope for a good sleep tonight and feeling even better tomorrow.
