Well I came through the surgery itself with flying colors for which I am extremely grateful! They were wonderful at the hospital. Had to be there at 0630 for processing and prep.
The biopsies will take 5 or 6 days to complete, but the Dr thought things went well. He said the gland or mass looked like a severe inflammatory response and may well be related to the virus that disabled me initially. The lingular tonsil is up in the air yet. May, in fact, turn out to be dog hair!
My neck, jaw and cheek are one large bandaged mass at this point due to swelling. I look like a chipmunk with the mumps! LOL I'm not allowed to talk for 7 days which will be interesting. In reality, right now, I can barely swallow water so talking hasn't been an issue. Tomorrow may be a different story! LOL
I want to thank you all for your support and prayers. I appreciate this more than you'll ever know. The power of prayer is humbling. I feel very blessed and no matter what the outcome of the biopsy I feel strong enough to handle it! Good night, my friends and God bless!
