The surgery went as planned Tuesday evening, although at first it was a little hairy. My mouth will not open much at all, so they were debating on how to put me to sleep, finally they decided on local anesthesia. It worked and everything went fine. The doctor put in a draining tube and the infection is draining good. The swelling is going down and they are keeping the pain under control. At first they were treating me for a staff infection, but when the biopsy came back it showed a severe strep infection so they changed my antibiotics.
THERE WAS NO CANCER showing in the biopsy!!!!
Thanks so much for your prayers!!! Although I don't know why this is all happening I still know God is in control and has a purpose in this. He has been merciful to me.
I have to have another surgery tomorrow to clean out the Partoid gland . I don't know how long I have to be in here. The infectious disease doctor said 7 to 10 days, which is highly discouraging!!! The ENT came in this morning and he said he will try and set it up for me to continue treatment in Knoxville. He says I really need to get a feeding tube. I am not getting enough nutrition. My mouth won't open much and my swallow mucsles don't work right so swallowing is very dificult. He said my body is unable to get the nutrition it needs to fight off the infections. He said he was going to send the nutritionist in to talk to me today.
Please pray for us to know God's will in what we need to do.
Thank you in advance for your prayers.
