Day 1 – 4 hours after surgery

Swelling has continued to increase as dinner is served. By this time, vino had arrived followed shortly by my sisters. Dinner included cranberry juice, chicken broth, and jelly (eaten by my mom). I ate through a syringe wout too much difficulty.

My only discomforts were the blood and spit that would congregate in my mouth and the fact that I fainted trying to use the washroom. The painting on the wall made me feel better though (not sure vino would agree though)
