Hi, SP.

Haven't caught up with all the posts yet , but you sound better. And vanilla-banana shake sounds delish)

Have a good day.

Burned the corner of my mouth that isn't numb on the soup, lol. Not too bad though. Guess that means I probably burned my whole mouth.

Omg, it hit the spot. This will be a staple for me. Egg drop soup is perfect for a liquid diet. Full of protein, comforting.

Brushed my teeth again. It's such a deterrent to snacking. I want a milkshake but that means more careful, meticulous cleaning. Conundrum, lol.

It's interesting that it has you searching out different soups and foods. And, I now have a craving for egg-drop soup.

How do you feel energy-wise, SP?

I feel mostly normal, energy-wise, Anna. Maybe around 85-90% or so. I'm bored today. Brian is with a friend. He left the kitchen a wreck. It's like an animal had been living in there for two weeks. I did some laundry. I washed Lucy. Actually, I shared a shower with Lucy! She loves warm showers and does really well in there. I'm dressed now. I am considering driving today, but I am embarrassed to order coffee because my lip is numb and I haven't yet figured out how to speak normally. I sound pretty funny right now.

I have lots of proofreading work to do as well.

And I don't know where to begin cleaning up the wreck he made of this house

I dismantled the "sick" table full of my medicine, syringes, wipes, cups, pens, books, and all sorts of stuff. That feels better. I put away all that stuff. The bedroom is looking normal again.

Wow! You're really getting back in the swing of things yay!!! Isn't it awesome to be on this side of surgery with all that anxiety and not-knowing behind you?!

Yes. Most of the anxiety is gone. I do have some about the numbness. I am going to believe and have faith I'll heal back to normal. They say 70% get back all feeling.

If I can beat the odds and stay sober, I can beat the odds and be in that 70%.

Hey, SP -- Day by day, right?

It's easier to say from where I sit, but the journey really is closer to completion than it may seem.

Well, Venecia, it feels more like an open-ended journey for me at this point.

But that's a good thing.

I'm shifting into high gear now, to complete the work I have to do for a proofreading course I'm taking. I had an epiphany earlier. There was a problem that had me stumped over some technological details, and so I went off into la-la land for a few minutes, and discovered what I think may be a solution.
