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!!!
