I need to rest the remainder of the day. They put me fully under and intubate me because of my sleep apnea and I'm allergic to Succ's so what they give me takes longer to come out of.



I made and had a cup of my instant mashed potato and deviled ham gruel. (semi-liquid diet) Having a small cup of flan.

My doctor said my case is their most successful case at UC San Diego Medical Centers ever.

I still have to go back a couple more times but originally HE WANTED TO CUT OUT MY ESOPHAGUS.


Thank you for your thoughts and well wishes earlier this morning.  :-)
