Checking in to see how you are doing. I see that you are still mostly on your own. But at least you are able to take your meds tonight. Good job!

I choked on the antibiotics. It hit the back of my throat and made me cough. Still haven't cleared it all out yet. I hope my lungs can handle it.

He is so angry, slamming doors, telling me I shouldn't have done this.

He never agreed with the surgery. But I intended to do this long before he was in my life.

He has refused to be supportive, and is trying to punish me now for having done it.

I am ok, I think.

I am trying to clear my lungs before last dose of meds in 30 minutes. Then after those pain meds kick in I might be able to sleep, assuming I'm done coughing by then.

I'm so sorry about your situation. The physical hardship is bad enough, but when it's combined with emotional strain, it must be double-painful. I wish I could help. I hope you rest tonight.

He has no right to do this to you...
Our priority is your recovery right now.
Later, well, that's another story.

He despises me for making this choice. He despises me.

I think I am just really sad I made such a poor choice in marriage.

People don't always show us who they are...until they do.
It's painful, I know.

Thanks, Venuscat.

I feel awful at the moment.

Courage and GroundhogDay, thanks.

I am so sad tonight.

Do you think my lungs will get infected from somehow choking on the liquid antibiotics?

I don't think we can answer as non-medical people, but I'm sure you'll be alright.
If you are worried, perhaps you can call the doctor in the morning.
I would.
I annoyed my surgeon a lot after my surgery.
I was on my own, so I was also pretty scared.
