(white blob on left side is the tumor)
blah blah blah blah blah had surgery scheduled had a panic attack in the prep room had to get drugged
(oh my god I love valium)
so this is post- op neck wrapped with a tube in my neck to help drain all the icky blood and junk
hurts like hell its all good tho when I have my AWSOME drugs, hurts to eat really bad because they took the gland out that produces saliva so I have alot of pressure in my neck when I eat from that gland still trying to provide saliva not to mention how horribly dry my mouth is right. I also had a breathing tube down my throat which messed up my throat so I have no voice. I really really wanna be sewing right now but literally cannot move my neck or hardly breath for that matter because the inside and outside of my neck is soo swollen.
ta-da I finally got to take my bandage off
WARNING NASTY PICTURE!
When someone asks about this scar I plan on telling them that I got into a knife fight with a grizzly bear because i'm tough like that.
Friday at 10am we find out if it is cancer or not.
