This is the best coffee I have had in my life. I haven’t been able to eat or drink for the last few days because after my surgery I was aspirating (fluids going into my lungs rather than my stomach which can cause infections like pneumonia ). It seems during my surgery my laryngeal nerve was injured or stretched meaning my vocal cords weren’t working well enough to stop thin fluid going the wrong way. I was absolutely terrified that I wouldn’t be able to eat or drink at all, accept through a tube, and was told it may be permanent. 😱 luckily I was able to do a barium swallow with video fluoroscopy, meaning the speech pathologist could check which way food and fluid were going. And yes water was going down into my lungs but if I sit up and take my time thickened fluid goes into my stomach rather than my lungs. I am so happy. It seems very likely it will heal completely but may take a month. Nerves take time to heal. This is my very first thickened coffee. 💕
Well, surgery was a little more complicated than we thought and didn’t exactly go as planned, but I’m gonna be fine! The mass was bigger than initially thought and was more involved, with lots to dissect and blood vessels to manage. So the surgery itself took longer. No issues with anesthesia at all but about an hour after surgery they noted some bleeding from the incision site. They put on a pressure bandage but needed to watch to see if they needed to open back up the incision and cauterize anything. Ultimately they didn’t need to do that but it might be a bumpy few days while things start to heal and I need to be monitored for any potential fluid or blood build up, bleeding or infection. I’m getting 2 antibiotics. The vet said that my prognosis is great! The mass they removed weighed 3.5 lbs!! Foster Daddio will get to lug my 3.5 lb lighter ass up the steps to the house and I need to be crated and not really walk around. The vet said that she doesn’t want me alone tomorrow and foster Daddio can bring me back to the vet and they can monitor me free of charge tomorrow during the day. He is gonna work from home tomorrow but is glad to know they can watch me if he is worried. He gets to come and pick me up at the vet around 8 tonight! #tougholdbroad

I knew hitting the gym would make me feel better, but it took a lot of encouragement to even change my clothes. I had to get this lactic acid buildup out, so cardio was my first stop. And for some reason I thought hitting the weights would also be a good idea. However, after a few good pumps, my body gave out and I had to call it quits. Looks like the next two days I’m gonna focus on getting better and staying away from the gym. 😷 🤒 🤕.

To God be the glory!
As we welcome this bundle of joy to the Ash clan, we call her "sleeping beauty" for now cos she loves her sleep (for now anyways🤣)
Labour was long and challenging but we got there in the end and I have nothing but a heart of thanksgiving for God's intervention 🙏🏽
Looking like a train wreck but I'm awake, the nurses are doing a great job managing my pain & my surgeon is happy with how everything went 👍 Thank you so much for all the well wishes, it means a lot!! 💕 xxx #nowforrecovery #gimmealllllthedrugs #rest #rest #rest
