It’s been a slow day… drugged… and blurry vision… but been worse… and in a way this is for the best given my “acting out” yesterday morning… life goes on and all that…
Been poked some today…. and X-rayed …. they are still concerned about allowing me to have anything orally… They said the ‘connection’ in my throat is healing but very slowly and they still have some concerns about that … and then there is the fact that my epiglottis is not doing it’s job properly …. with that and for the fact that I haven’t really been actively swallowing anything for the last few months… it’s not worth the risk… and with my history of aspiration and pneumonia I know that’s for the best… for now… I will pick that up again though…. especially if I get to work on it with my beautiful and funny speech/swallowing therapist from back home… but we’ll see…
I don’t have much more to say today… my brain doesn’t really have enough activity for me to think of more things to say at the moment…
(I was supposed to have a surgery for that one before all of this)
Its just great to see your posts!! Hang in there champ!! 🙂

Glad you are ok enough to post something. Feel better. We’re all sending good juju….
Please rest & no you don’t need pneumonia at this time. Are they expecting you ti be able to swallow liquids at some point? Go nvery slowly & don’t leave there until your fully healed. Iceland is too far away from the specialists at your hospital. Sometimes I wish I was heavily drugged!
Gail I’m not exactly the “normal” patient …so no… they are not really expecting me to… They have talked about some barium/x-ray thing though which is something they do for everyone who go through this type of surgery… but yeah… I don’t need pneumonia now…. you’re right about that one… I won’t leave here for at least 7 weeks… they told us right from the start that I shouldn’t fly until 8-10 weeks from the surgery… I’m sure I won’t be at the hospital the whole time though… but we have an apartment ready for us when I leave here… It is close to the hospital and I will get a nurse visiting and checking up on things… however I still don’t know when I get out of here…
Hang in there. You’re amazingly strong. Love and light to you and your family. ??
Stay strong! Glad to hear you are on the road to recovery. Our prayers are going up for you!

<3 always. Sending good thoughts to you and your family. 🙂
Behave in there mister!!!
The strength is with you Gabriel. I kind of have a clue of what just happened to you but I am slightly lost. Either way I wish you the best of healing… And on a different matter, you could post the word “boobies” and just seeing a post from ya knowing you’re still able to see to type and have the functions to use those fingers to type and to even think of boobies…is ease at our minds knowing you’re still touching through this. You are definitely a warrior. Keep shining love!!!! ????
LOL Brittany… Maybe I should google some boobies and post them tomorrow 😛
Well hey at least you’re posting!!!
I’ll show you what’s on my boobie if you show me what’s on yours! Hahaha!
LOL well I believe I have posted a pic of mine on here in the past … an old pic tho and only one boob 😛
It’s on my left boob, under my bra & over my heart <3
My boob isn’t as HUGE as this picture makes it look! Hahaha!
You’re braver than me with the tattoo thing… would like one but haven’t worked up the courage yet…
