A New Sensation

I have taken one form or another of pain meds daily since my surgery. The left side of my face and mouth is hard and numb. I have pretty much been deaf in my left ear since surgery, due to the swelling and I assume the missing lymph nodes. I sleep part of the night in bed and then move to my recliner between 4 & 6 am. Last night I took a tylenol pm hoping to get a good nights sleep. My bottom jaw was still hurting so I got back up and took a little pain medication. When I returned to bed Wendell wanted to know exactly what all I had taken in case he needed to inform the medical team of what I had overdosed on!!! hee hee:). Sometimes I do feel like a walking pharmacy!!!
I woke this morning to a new sensation. It took me a few minutes to figure out what was different. Then it hit me... My left ear is not numb!!!! WOW!!! This feels so much better!!! Now I am just a little nervous, as the morning wears on, hoping that the numbness won't return!!! I am elated!!! This is the first bit of progress I feel I have made in weeks!!! Thanks for praying for me!!! God Is Good!!!

My daily prayer for you is that today will be better than yesterday. I am so glad that this progress has lifted your spirits. Many people are praying for you and God is listening.

Debbie,
That's great!!! It is going to take time probably for swelling and just surgery to get some feeling back.
Everyday hopefully will bring you some relief.
We love you,
Karen & family

Thank's for praying for me. I find it very humbling to know that people are taking time out of their busy lives to think of and pray for me. It means more to me than you will ever know!!!
